Psalm 125



Israel's Stability

1 Those who trust in the LORD Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.

1 {A Song of degrees.} They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

1 Those who are trusting in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be overthrown. They remain forever.

1 Those who trust in, lean on, and confidently hope in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides and stands fast forever.

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

2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

2 Just as mountains encircle Jerusalem, so the LORD encircles his people, from now to eternity.

2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about His people from this time forth and forever.

3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous, So that the righteous will not put forth their hands to do wrong.

3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

3 For evil's scepter will not rest on the land that has been allotted to the righteous, and so the righteous will not direct themselves to do wrong.

3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the [uncompromisingly] righteous, lest the righteous (God's people) stretch forth their hands to iniquity and apostasy.

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

4 Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.

4 LORD, do good to those who are good, and to those who are upright in heart.

4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are right [with You and all people] in their hearts.

5 But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, The LORD will lead them away with the doers of iniquity Peace be upon Israel.

5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

5 But for those who choose their own devious paths, the LORD will lead them away, along with those who practice evil. Peace be upon Israel. A Song of Ascents

5 As for such as turn aside to their crooked ways [of indifference to God], the Lord will lead them forth with the workers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel!
