Psalms 125

The  Lord Surrounds His People

A Song of a  Ascents.

1 Those who b  trust in the  Lord are like Mount Zion,
which c  cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so d  the  Lord surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
3For e  the scepter of wickedness shall not f  rest
on g  the land allotted to the righteous,
lest the righteous h  stretch out
their hands to do wrong.
4 i  Do good, O  Lord, to those who are good,
and to those who are j  upright in their hearts!
5But those who k  turn aside to their l  crooked ways
the  Lord will lead away with m  evildoers!
n  Peace be upon Israel!
