Psalms 121

The Lord Our Protector

song of ascents: Probably the songs pilgrims sang as they traveled the roads going up to worship in Jerusalem; Pss 120-134
song of ascents.

I lift my eyes toward the mountains.
Where will my help come from? b
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth. c

3 He will not allow your foot to slip;
your Protector will not slumber. d
4 Indeed, the Protector of Israel
does not slumber or sleep. e

5 The Lord protects you;
the Lord is a shelter right by your side.
Lit is your shelter at your right hand
6 The sun will not strike you by day
or the moon by night. h

7 The Lord will protect you from all harm;
He will protect your life. i
8 The Lord will protect your coming and going
both now and forever. j
