Psalm 125

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.=

1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion. They will always be secure. They will last forever.
2 Like the mountains around Jerusalem, the LORD is all around his people both now and forever.
3 Evil people will not always rule the land the LORD gave to those who do right. If they did, those who do right might do what is evil.
4 Lord, do good to those who are good. Do good to those whose hearts are honest.
5 But what about those who have taken paths that are crooked? The LORD will drive them out, along with those who do what is evil. May Israel enjoy peace.
