Psalms - Chapter 125




The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

1 <A Song of the going up.> Those whose hope is in the Lord are like the mountain of Zion, which may not be moved, but keeps its place for ever.

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

2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people, from this time and for ever.

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 the rod of sinners will not be resting on the heritage of the upright; so that the upright may not put out their hands to evil.

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

4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in heart.

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 as for such as are turned out of the straight way, the Lord will take them away with the workers of evil. Let peace be on Israel.
