The Psalms

Psalm 121

The great safety of the godly who put their trust in God's protection, 1-8.

1 [A Song of Degrees.] I will lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?

2 My help comes from the LORD who made heaven and earth.

3 He will not allow your foot to be moved. He who keeps you will not slumber.

4 Behold, he who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD is your keeper. The LORD is your shade upon your right hand.

6 The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will preserve you from all evil. He will preserve your soul.

8 The LORD will preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth and even forever.
