Psalms 125:1-5

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • Jehovah protects his people

    • “As mountains surround Jerusalem” (2)

    • “May there be peace upon Israel” (5)

A Song of the Ascents. 125  Those who trust in Jehovah+ Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken But endures forever.+   Just as mountains surround Jerusalem,+ So Jehovah surrounds his people+ From now on and forever.   The scepter of wickedness will not remain upon the land allotted to the righteous,+ So that the righteous do not turn to doing* what is wrong.+   Do good, O Jehovah, to those who are good,+ To those who are upright in heart.+   As for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, Jehovah will remove them along with the wrongdoers.+ May there be peace upon Israel.
