Psalms 125:1-2

Context
Psalm 125 1 

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.

125:2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, 3 

so the Lord surrounds his people,

now and forevermore.

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.
