Today's bible teaching: Those trusting in the LORD are like Mount Zion,unshakable, forever enduring.


Psalms, Chapter 125

1A song of ascents.

Those trusting in the LORD are like Mount Zion,

unshakable, forever enduring.a

2As mountains surround Jerusalem,

the LORD surrounds his people

both now and forever.b

3The scepter of the wicked will not prevail

in the land allotted to the just,*

Lest the just themselves

turn their hands to evil.

4Do good, LORD, to the good,

to those who are upright of heart.c

5But those who turn aside to crooked ways

may the LORD send down with the evildoers.d

Peace upon Israel!e

* [Psalm 125] In response to exilic anxieties about the ancient promises of restoration, the Psalm expresses confidence that God will surround the people as the mountains surround Zion (Ps 125:12). The just will not be contaminated by the wicked (Ps 125:3). May God judge between the two groups (Ps 125:45).
