Rashi's Commentary:

Chapter 125

1. A song of ascents. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which will not falter but will abide forever.   א. שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת הַבֹּטְחִים בַּיהֹוָה כְּהַר צִיּוֹן לֹא יִמּוֹט לְעוֹלָם יֵשֵׁב:
Those who trust in the Lord: will not falter, like Mount Zion, which will not falter, for just as Jerusalem is surrounded by mountains, so is the Holy One, blessed be He, around His people.  
2. Jerusalem has mountains around it, and the Lord is around His people from now and to eternity.   ב. יְרוּשָׁלִַם הָרִים סָבִיב לָהּ וַיהֹוָה סָבִיב לְעַמּוֹ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם:
3. For the rod of wickedness will not rest on the lot of the righteous, because the righteous do not stretch out their hands into wrongdoing.   ג. כִּי לֹא יָנוּחַ שֵׁבֶט הָרֶשַׁע עַל גּוֹרַל הַצַּדִּיקִים לְמַעַן לֹא יִשְׁלְחוּ הַצַּדִּיקִים | בְּעַוְלָתָה יְדֵיהֶם:
For the rod of wickedness will not rest on the lot of the righteous: For the Holy One, blessed be He, will not allow the rule of the wicked to rest on the righteous because the righteous are careful not to stretch out their hand in wrongdoing.  
4. Be good, O Lord, to the good and to the upright in their hearts.   ד. הֵיטִיבָה יְהֹוָה לַטּוֹבִים וְלִישָׁרִים בְּלִבּוֹתָם:
5. And those who turn their crooked ways-may the Lord lead them away with the workers of iniquity, [and may there be] peace on Israel.   ה. וְהַמַּטִּים | עֲקַלְקַלּוֹתָם יוֹלִיכֵם יְהֹוָה אֶת פֹּעֲלֵי הָאָוֶן שָׁלוֹם עַל יִשְׂרָאֵל:
and those who turn their crooked ways: on the people to find wicked accusationsmay the Lord lead them away with the workers of iniquity.
