Listen to the Sons of Korah sing Psalm 125
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 Lord, do good 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 on Israel.
Whole Psalm. This short psalm may be summed up in those words of the prophet (Isa 3:10-11), “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him.” Thus are life and death, the blessing and the curse, set before us often in the psalms, as well as in the law and in the prophets.—Matthew Henry, 1662-1714.Response: Lord, we rest secure in You for our lives are in Your hands. Peace be on Jerusalem even though surrounded by enemies. Amen.
