Psalm 121 MSG/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? 1 I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from?
2 No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains. 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He won't let you stumble, your Guardian God won't fall asleep. 3 He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 Not on your life! Israel's Guardian will never doze or sleep. 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 God's your Guardian, right at your side to protect you - 5 The LORD watches over you-- the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 Shielding you from sunstroke, sheltering you from moonstroke. 6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 God guards you from every evil, he guards your very life. 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;
8 He guards you when you leave and when you return, he guards you now, he guards you always. 8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
