Psalm 125 Revised Standard Version

The LORD Is Round about His People

125 1  A Song of Ascents. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides for ever. 2  As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people, from this time forth and for evermore. 3  For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous put forth their hands to do wrong.

4  Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts! 5  But those who turn aside upon their crooked ways the Lord will lead away with evildoers! Peace be in Israel!
