Psalm 125


The Lord Surrounds His People



 A SONG OF ASCENTS. 


      1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, 

      which cannot be moved, but abides forever. 

      2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, 

      so the LORD surrounds his people, 

      from this time forth and forevermore. 

      3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest 

      on the land allotted to the righteous, 

      lest the righteous stretch out 

      their hands to do wrong. 

      4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, 

      and to those who are upright in their hearts! 

      5 But those who turn aside to their crooked ways 

      the LORD will lead away with evildoers! 

      Peace be upon Israel!
