Psalm 125

A pilgrimage song.

1 The people who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion: never shaken, lasting forever.
2 Mountains surround Jerusalem. That's how the LORD surrounds his people from now until forever from now!
3 The wicked rod won't remain in the land given to the righteous so that they don't use their hands to do anything wrong.
4 LORD, do good to people who are good, to people whose hearts are right.
5 But as for those people who turn to their own twisted ways— may the LORD march them off with other evildoers! Peace be on Israel!
