Psalms 125

(A song for worship.)

The Lord's People Are Safe

1Everyone who trusts the Lord

is like Mount Zion

that cannot be shaken

and will stand forever.

2Just as Jerusalem is protected

by mountains on every side,

the Lord protects his people

by holding them in his arms

now and forever.

3He won't let the wicked

rule his people

or lead them to do wrong.

4Let's ask the Lord to be kind

to everyone who is good

and completely obeys him.

5When the Lord punishes

the wicked,

he will punish everyone else

who lives an evil life.

Pray for peace in Israel!
