Psalm 121

The Lord the Keeper of Israel.

A Song of [a]Ascents.

121 I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]—
From where shall my help come?(A)
2
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
3
He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.(B)
4
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber [briefly] nor sleep [soundly].

5
The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.(C)
6
The sun will not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.(D)
7
The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your life.
8
The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in [everything that you do]
From this time forth and forever.(E)
