A song ·for going up to worship [of ascents; C perhaps sung while traveling to Jerusalem to celebrate an annual religious festival like Passover].
125 Those who ·trust [have confidence in] the Lord are like Mount Zion [C the location of the Temple], which sits unmoved forever. 2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, the Lord surrounds his people now and forever.
3 The ·wicked will not rule over [L scepter of the wicked will not rest on; C the scepter is a symbol of rule] ·those who do right [L the allotment of the righteous]. ·If they did, the people who do right might use their power to do evil [L …so the righteous do not send forth their hands in evil].
4 Lord, ·be [or do] good to those who are good, whose hearts are ·honest [virtuous; filled with integrity]. 5 But, Lord, when you ·remove [turn aside] those who ·do evil [are twisted/perverted], also ·remove [L make go away] those who ·stop following you [L do evil].
