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!
