Psalms 121

I [am for] {g} peace: but when I speak, they [are] for war.

(g) He declares what he means by Meshech and Kedar, that is, the Israelites who had degenerated from their godly fathers, and hated and contended against the faithful.
My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made {a} heaven and earth.

(a) He accuses man's ingratitude, which cannot depend on God's power.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not {b} slumber.

(b) He shows that God's providence not only watches over his Church in general, but also over every member of it.
The sun shall not {c} smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

(c) Neither heat nor cold, nor any inconvenience will be able to destroy God's Church, even though for a time they may molest it.
The LORD shall preserve thy {d} going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

(d) Whatever you attempt will have good success.
