In Hebrew it goes like
b’Adonai kehar Tsion, lo imot leolam vaed”.
The word “imot”, usually translated as moved, is more
specifically, shaken, or tottered. So
There is a similar passage in PSA 46:4-5 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, The holy dwelling places of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
So then, God is in her midst, and surrounding her. Again, the words for “not be moved”, are even more specifically, “not be shaken”.

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord be the shade on your right hand. May He guard your coming out and your going in.
