Psalm 121

The Lord, the Keeper of Israel.

A Song of Ascents.

121 I will raise my eyes to the mountains;
From where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who watches over you will not slumber.
Behold, He who watches over Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your [a]protector;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not [b]beat down on you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will [c]protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.
The Lord will [d]guard your going out and your coming in
From this time and forever.
