New International Version (1984 Edition)

Psalms 125

A song of ascents.

1 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
     which cannot be shaken but endures forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
     so the Lord surrounds his people
     both now and forevermore.
3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain
     over the land allotted to the righteous,
for then the righteous might use
     their hands to do evil.
4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
     to those who are upright in heart.
5 But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be upon Israel.
