Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A Song of Ascents. I lift up my eyes to the hills. From whence does my help come? 1 I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot be moved, he who keeps you will not slumber. 3 He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand. 5 The LORD watches over you-- the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. 6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;
8 The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and for evermore. 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
