Psalm 125

Mount Zion Cannot Be Shaken

A song of the ascents.

Those Who Trust in the Lord Cannot Be Shaken

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion.
It cannot be shaken. It will stand forever.
As Jerusalem is surrounded by mountains,
so the Lord surrounds his people from now to eternity.
No, the scepter of wickedness will not rest
    on the land assigned to the righteous,
so that the righteous do not reach out their hands toward evil.
Do good, O Lord, for the good
and for those who are upright in their hearts.
But those who turn to their crooked ways—
the Lord will send them away with the evildoers.
Peace be on Israel.
