Psalms 125

A song of ascents.

Those who trust in the  Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be shaken but endures for ever.
As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the  Lord surrounds his people
both now and for evermore.
The sceptre of the wicked will not remain
over the land allotted to the righteous,
for then the righteous might use
their hands to do evil.
 Lord, do good to those who are good,
to those who are upright in heart.
But those who turn to crooked ways
the  Lord will banish with the evildoers.
Peace be on Israel.
