Psalms 125:1-5

Psalm 125

A song of ascents.

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,

so the Lord surrounds his people,

now and forevermore.

125:3 Indeed, the scepter of a wicked king will not settle

upon the allotted land of the godly.

Otherwise the godly might

do what is wrong.

125:4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,

to the morally upright!

125:5 As for those who are bent on traveling a sinful path,

may the Lord remove them, along with those who behave wickedly!

May Israel experience peace!
