Last part: Psalm 125
The poet adds a second lesson from geography in verse 2. It is about the mountains that surround Jerusalem. Those mountains are just small mountains; many people would consider them large hills.
Jerusalem stands on a hill. And many other hills are round it. There are hills in every direction. The person who goes to Jerusalem must climb several hills on the way.
So God is with his people. His people are not like a mountain that stands alone, with a plain all round it. They are like a mountain that is among many mountains. Those other mountains are like God, who is there with them. So Godís people can look in any direction. And they will always see that God, their powerful friend, is with them.
