Qui confidunt in Domino, sicut mons Sion:
non commovebitur in aeternum, qui habitat in Jerusalem.
Montes in circuitu eius
Et Dominus in circuitu populi sui
Ex hoc nunc et usque in saeculum.

They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Sion:
he shall not be moved for ever that dwelleth in Jerusalem.
Mountains are round about it:
so the Lord is round about his people
from henceforth now and for ever.

he who dwells in Jerusalem shall never be moved.
V. The mountains stand round about it,
and the Lord stands round about his people,
from henceforth now and for ever.
