Psalm 125

A song for going up to worship.

Those who trust Yahweh are like Mount Zion,
    which can never be shaken.
        It remains firm forever.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
    so Yahweh surrounds his people now and forever.

A wicked ruler will not be allowed to govern
    the land set aside for righteous people.
        That is why righteous people do not use their power to do wrong.

Do good, O Yahweh, to those who are good,
    to those whose motives are decent.
But when people become crooked,
    Yahweh will lead them away with troublemakers.

Let there be peace in Israel!
