The Psalms

Psalm 125

The safety of such as trust in God, 1-3. A prayer for the godly and against the wicked, 4, 5.

1 [A Song of Degrees.] Those who trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abides forever.

2 As the mountains are around Jerusalem, so the LORD is around his people from now on even forever.

3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous, lest the righteous put forth their hands to iniquity.

4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good and to those who are upright in their hearts.

5 As for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity, but peace shall be upon Israel.
