∑ Here is a poem that explains each verse and each word picture in Psalm 125. First, compare it with the translation in your Bible. This will help you to understand the parts of Psalm 125 that may seem difficult. Then use the poem again when you pray. Perhaps you have had experiences like those that the author of Psalm 125 had. Then you will be able to make the poem into your own prayer to God.
A song for the journey to Jerusalem.
 Jerusalem stands on the mountain called Zion.
And people who trust God are like that mountain.
Nothing can shake it. It always stands firm.
 Other mountains surround Jerusalem.
And God surrounds his people.
He is there to protect them, both now and always.
 Wicked people still have some power in this country.
But they will not always control the land that belongs to good people.
Otherwise, good people might decide to carry out evil deeds.
 God, be good to people who are good.
Help those people who are sincere.
 But some people prefer to do wrong things.
They are behaving as evil people do.
God will force all such people to leave this country.
I pray that the country called Israel will have peace.
