Psalms 125

Israel’s Stability

song of ascents: Probably the songs pilgrims sang as they traveled the roads going up to worship in Jerusalem; Pss 120-134
song of ascents.

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount
Zion: Originally a term for the fortified section of Jerusalem and then, by extension, used for the temple and the city of Jerusalem both in the present time and in the future
It cannot be shaken; it remains forever. c
2 Jerusalem – the mountains surround her.
And the Lord surrounds His people,
both now and forever. d

3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain
over the land allotted to the righteous,
so that the righteous will not apply their hands to injustice. e
4 Do what is good, Lord, to the good,
to those whose hearts are upright. f
5 But as for those who turn aside to crooked ways,
the Lord will banish them with the evildoers. g

Peace be with Israel. h
