Psalm 121

A song for the ascents.

Trust in God’s Protection

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains; whence will my help come?
2 My help [is] from Yahweh, maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved; he who protects you will not slumber.
4 Look, he will not slumber and he will not sleep-- he who protects Israel.
5 Yahweh [is] your protector; Yahweh [is] your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun will not strike you by day, nor [the] moon by night.
7 Yahweh will protect you from all evil; he will protect your life.
8 Yahweh will protect your going out and your coming in from now until forever.
