Psalms 125

Verse 3

For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

The rod — Their power and authority.

Not rest — Not continue long.

The lot — Upon the habitations and persons of good men.

Lest — Lest they should be driven to indirect courses to relieve themselves.

Verse 5

As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

Lead them — Unto sinful courses.

Israel — Upon the true Israel of God.
