5 But those who turn to crooked ways the Lord will banish with the evildoers. Peace be on Israel.
5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the Lord shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.
5 But those who turn aside to their crooked ways the Lord will lead away with evildoers! Peace be upon Israel!
5 God will round up the backsliders, corral them with the incorrigibles. Peace over Israel!
5 As for such as turn aside to their crooked ways, The Lord shall lead them away With the workers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel!
5 But banish those who turn to crooked ways, O Lord . Take them away with those who do evil. May Israel have peace!
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 125:5
Commentary on Psalm 125:4-5
(Read Psalm 125:4-5)
God's promises should quicken our prayers. The way of holiness is straight; there are no windings or shiftings in it. But the ways of sinners are crooked. They shift from one purpose to another, and turn hither and thither to deceive; but disappointment and misery shall befal them. Those who cleave to the ways of God, though they may have trouble in their way, their end shall be peace. The pleading of their Saviour for them, secures to them the upholding power and preserving grace of their God. Lord, number us with them, in time, and to eternity.
