(a response to psalm 125)
anyone who puts his complete trust in the Lord
will be unshakable;
he will continue in enduring strength.
the Lord surrounds his people
as their fortress and protector;
he enfolds them in safety forever.
a wicked person may rule for awhile
but cannot subdue one who is steadfastly righteous;
the power of the wicked will be destroyed
before he can make the righteous fall.
please do good to people who are good,
whose heart-thoughts are pure
and who act in purity.
however, banish those who are twisted and deceitful.
peace to God's people.
