Psalm 125

1 They that trust in Jehovah
Are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abideth
for ever.
2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem,
So Jehovah is round about his people
From this time forth and for evermore.

1 See Psalm xviii. 1. R. 279.
See Psalm ii. 6-8, 12. R. 612.
See Psalm xviii. 1. E. 326.
Mount Zion signifies the Divine good and the church as to that good. E. 405.
1-5. From the Lord the new church is kept from falsities of evil. P. P.

3 For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot
of the righteous;
That the righteous put not forth their hands unto
iniquity.
4 Do good, O Jehovah, unto those that are good,
And to them that are upright in their hearts.
5 But as for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways,
Jehovah will lead them forth with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel.

3 See Psalm ii. 9. A. 4876.
See Psalm xxiii. 4, 5. R. 485.
The staff of impiety signifies the power of the false from evil, upon the lot of the just signifies over truths from good which are with the faithful, and especially with those who are in love to the Lord, for these in the Word are called the just. Let the just put forth their hands to perversities signifies lest they falsify truths. E. 727.
