Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 125 Bible commentary...
The security of the righteous. (1-3) Prayer for them, The ruin of the wicked. (4,5)
1-3 All those minds shall be truly stayed, that are stayed on God. They shall be as Mount Zion, firm as it is; a mountain supported by providence, much more as a holy mountain supported by promise. They cannot be removed from confidence in God. They abide for ever in that grace which is the earnest of their everlasting continuance in glory. Committing themselves to God, they shall be safe from their enemies. Even mountains may moulder and come to nothing, and rocks be removed, but God's covenant with his people cannot be broken, nor his care of them cease. Their troubles shall last no longer than their strength will bear them up under them. The rod of the wicked may come, may fall upon the righteous, upon their persons, their estates, their liberties, their families names, on any thing that falls to their lot; only it cannot reach their souls. And though it may come upon their lot, it shall not rest thereon. The Lord will make all work together for their good. The wicked shall only prove a correcting rod, not a destroying sword; even this rod shall not remain upon them, lest they distrust the promise, thinking God has cast them off.
4,5 God's promises should quicken our prayers. The way of holiness is straight; there are no windings or shiftings in it. But the ways of sinners are crooked. They shift from one purpose to another, and turn hither and thither to deceive; but disappointment and misery shall befal them. Those who cleave to the ways of God, though they may have trouble in their way, their end shall be peace. The pleading of their Saviour for them, secures to them the upholding power and preserving grace of their God. Lord, number us with them, in time, and to eternity.

This is a awesome verse, and this is the confirmation to God's word about it. Read Isa. 55:11. be bless.

Those who are trust in God are very, very strong people who overcome what those who don't trust in him don't overcome. The most important word is TRUST which is the centrality of the psalm's message. Im studying it at the current time.
Joyce Hutto's Psalms Chapter 125 comment on 4/03/2013, 1:27pm...
Through prayer we must keep our eyes by faith on God and the path that He has set before his children. To falter from this path leads to failure.Our faith creates the mountains of protection and our doubts destroy them. There is no turning to the right nor to the left,regardless of how attractive it may appear. We must be as Peter when he ask Christ to Bid him to come to Him,we must keep our eyes on Him,who will not fail us. But if we as Peter do falter,He is ever present to rescue and restore His child!

Just as David sang a song of praise to God for his love and protection,so shall we sing the same songof pr aise,knowing that He the Great Shepard is ever mindful of his sheep.He will not suffer a hair on our head to be harmed by satan.How Great is our God!
Mas's Psalms Chapter 125 comment on 1/21/2013, 7:13am...
Verse 5 means those that follow wicked ways because of life difficulties and pressures shall face the consequences of evildoers. No matter what the sufferings, God shall not allow the ‘’rod of the wicked rest upon the lot of the righteous, lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity”.
God shall keep things within the limits of the bearable, and shall show us the way out, 1 Corinthians 10:13. That is God’s seal.
Now, if we will faint and give up, we alone shall be responsible for the bad replications and consequences of leaving God’s way.
The key is: Do we remember the word in trials and temptations, do we keep the word in sufferings, pains, affliction, and oppression? Do we call enough to the point that we can wake even the sleeping one up? Because most people will surrender and quit very quickly.
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;), Hebrews 10:23.
God bless you.

Can anyone help explain Psalms 125:5 to me?
Hosea Semenge's Psalms Chapter 125 comment about verse 3 on 1/19/2013, 12:13am...
Simplistically, it says:"God defense (favour) is always around those who fear Him and He secures their possession against the plans of the wicked, so that the righteous should have confidence in Him.
