Psalm 125 (ESV)
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.

Leader and People:

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!
