English Standard Version
The Lord Surrounds His People
A Song of (A)Ascents.
125 Those who (B)trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which (C)cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so (D)the Lord surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
3 For (E)the scepter of wickedness shall not (F)rest
on (G)the land allotted to the righteous,
lest the righteous (H)stretch out
their hands to do wrong.
4 (I)Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
and to those who are (J)upright in their hearts!
5 But those who (K)turn aside to their (L)crooked ways
the Lord will lead away with (M)evildoers!
(N)Peace be upon Israel!
