125:2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so Yahweh surrounds his people from this time forth and forevermore.

so that the righteous wonít use their hands to do evil.

A prayer for the godly, and against the wicked

125:4 Do good, Yahweh, to those who are good,
to those who are upright in their hearts.

Yahweh will lead them away with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be on Israel.
