Psalms 125

Psalm 1251

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.

125:3 Indeed,4 the scepter of a wicked king5 will not settle6

upon the allotted land of the godly.

Otherwise the godly might

do what is wrong.7

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

to the morally upright!8

125:5 As for those who are bent on traveling a sinful path,9

may the Lord remove them,10 along with those who behave wickedly!11

May Israel experience peace!12
