Psalm 125
English Standard Version

The Lord Surrounds His People

A Song of Ascents.

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