A song of ascents. 2
125:1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion;
it cannot be upended and will endure forever.
1 sn Psalm 125. The psalmist affirms his confidence in the Lord’s protection and justice.
2 sn The precise significance of this title, which appears in Pss 120-134, is unclear. Perhaps worshipers recited these psalms when they ascended the road to Jerusalem to celebrate annual religious festivals. For a discussion of their background see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 (WBC), 219-21.
