A Song of the Ascents. 125  Those who trust in Jehovah+Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shakenBut 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.
