Amplified Bible

Psalm 125

The Lord Surrounds His People.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

1Those who trust in and rely on the Lord [with confident expectation]
Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but remains forever.

As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the Lord surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever.

For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land of the righteous,
So that the righteous will not reach out their hands to do wrong.


Do good, O Lord, to those who are good
And to those who are upright in their hearts.

But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways [in unresponsiveness to God],
The Lord will lead them away with those who do evil.
Peace be upon Israel.

New International Reader's Version

Psalm 125

Psalm 125

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

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion.
    They will always be secure. They will last forever.
Like the mountains around Jerusalem,
    the Lord is all around his people
    both now and forever.

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.

Lord, do good to those who are good.
    Do good to those whose hearts are honest.
But the Lord will drive out those who have taken crooked paths.
    He will drive them out with those who do evil things.

May Israel enjoy peace.
