Psalm 125

The Security of God’s People

A Song of Ascents.

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
    which cannot be moved but abides forever.(A)
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
    so the Lord surrounds his people
    from this time on and forevermore.(B)
For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
    on the land allotted to the righteous,
so that the righteous might not stretch out
    their hands to do wrong.(C)
Do good, O Lord, to those who are good
    and to those who are upright in their hearts.(D)
But those who turn aside to their own crooked ways,
    the Lord will lead away with evildoers.
    Peace be upon Israel!(E)
