Psalm 125 (124)
8Trust in the Lord.
1 Those who trust in the Lord
1 are like Mount Zion,
1 immovable, it stands forever.
2 As mountains surround Jerusalem,
2 so the Lord encompasses his people.
3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain
3 over the land allotted to the upright,
3 for then the upright might be led
3 to put their hands to evil deeds.
4 Be good, O Lord, to those who are good,
4 to those who are upright in heart.
5 But those who turn to crooked ways,
5 the Lord will drive out with the evil doers.
5 May peace remain upon Israel.
