Psalms - Chapter 125 | English Standard Version

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