Psalm 125:1; Psalm 125:2–5

The Lord Surrounds His People

A Song of mAscents.

125  Those who ftrust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,

which gcannot be moved, but abides forever.


As the mountains surround Jerusalem,

so hthe Lord surrounds his people,

from this time forth and forevermore.

For ithe scepter of wickedness shall not jrest

on kthe land allotted to the righteous,

lest the righteous lstretch out

their hands to do wrong.

mDo good, O Lord, to those who are good,

and to those who are nupright in their hearts!

But those who oturn aside to their pcrooked ways

the Lord will lead away with qevildoers!

rPeace be upon Israel!
