The fifth book of Psalms, song 125, New English Translation and King James Version

Psalm 125

New English Translation

   A song of ascents.
   1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion; it cannot be upended and will endure forever.
   2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, now and forevermore.
   3 Indeed, the scepter of a wicked king will not settle upon the allotted land of the godly. Otherwise the godly might do what is wrong.
   4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, to the morally upright!
   5 As for those who are bent on traveling a sinful path, may the LORD remove them, along with those who behave wickedly! May Israel experience peace!

King James Version

   A Song of degrees.
   1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
   2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even 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.
   4 Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
   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.
