Unshaken Mountain

Psalm 125; 2 Kings 2:9-22; Acts 3:17-4:4

Psalm 125

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, 


which cannot be shaken but endures forever.

As the mountains surround Jerusalem,


so the Lord surrounds his people


both now and forevermore.

The scepter of the wicked will not remain


over the land allotted to the righteous,


for then the righteous might use


their hands to do evil.

Lord, do good to those who are good,


to those who are upright in heart.

But those who turn to crooked ways


the Lord will banish with the evildoers.

Peace be on Israel!

  1. Thanks Heidi, Alex and Jonathon–We plan to review some of the attributes of God at confirmation tonight–my opening question for the group tonight will be “What do you think of when you think of God?”, or something to that effect, then we will be doing a study of Jesus. What a great help this is!
