Psalm 125
A song of ascents.
Those who trust in the Lord
are like Mount Zion,
that cannot be moved,
but abides forever.
Round Jerusalem are the mountains,
and the Lord is round his people
from now and for evermore.
For he will not suffer
the sceptre of wrong
to rest on the land
allotted to the righteous;
else the righteous might put forth
their own hand to evil.
Do good, O Lord,
to the good,
and to the true-hearted.
But those who swerve
into crooked ways
will the Lord lead away
with the workers of evil.
Peace be upon Israel.
