Psalm 125New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
1 A song of ascents.
Those trusting in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
unshakable, forever enduring.
2 As mountains surround Jerusalem,
the Lord surrounds his people
both now and forever.
3 The scepter of the wicked will not prevail
in the land allotted to the just,
Lest the just themselves
turn their hands to evil.
4 Do good, Lord, to the good,
to those who are upright of heart.
5 But those who turn aside to crooked ways
may the Lord send down with the evildoers.
Peace upon Israel!
