tells us that if we trust in the Lord, we will not be moved or shaken.
Those that trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, the holy hill that cannot be moved. The people looked towards Mount Zion, as God's holy place, and no matter where they travelled, they looked toward the temple.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem, God surrounds His people. Not only in the time this psalm was written, but for evermore.
The scepter of the wicked kings and monarchs that arise will not rest on the land that was given to God's children. God will protect his righteous children from wrongdoing.
The psalm writer asked God to do good to those who are good. He asked that God do good to those that are upright in their hearts. But to those who turn aside from God to the evil and crooked ways of the wicked, the Lord will lead them away with the evildoers.
Peace be to Israel!
As Christians, we should ask ourselves: Do we trust in the Lord? Are we like God's holy hill, a place where others can look towards to see righteousness? Are we daily surrounded by God? Or have hour hearts and minds turned towards another that is leading us away from God?
