1 I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains?
2 No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
3 He won't let you stumble, your Guardian God won't fall asleep.
4 Not on your life! Israel's Guardian will never doze or sleep.
5 God's your Guardian, right at your side to protect you -
6 Shielding you from sunstroke, sheltering you from moonstroke.
7 God guards you from every evil, he guards your very life.
8 He guards you when you leave and when you return, he guards you now, he guards you always.
