¶ The song of the stairs.They that put their trust in the LORD, are even as the mount Sion, which may not be removed, but stondeth fast for ever. The hills stond about Ierusalem, even so stondeth the LORD round about his people, from this time forth for evermore. That the rod of the ungodly come not into the lot of the righteous, lest the righteous put their hand unto wickedness.
¶ Do well, O LORD, unto those that be good and true of heart. As for such as turn back unto their own wickedness, the LORD shall lead them forth with the evil doers: but peace be upon Israel.
