A song of ascents.2
121:1 I look up3 toward the hills.
From where4 does my help come?
121:2 My help comes from the Lord,5
the Creator6 of heaven and earth!
121:3 May he not allow your foot to slip!
May your protector7 not sleep!8
121:4 Look! Israel’s protector9
does not sleep or slumber!
121:5 The Lord is your protector;
the Lord is the shade at your right hand.
121:6 The sun will not harm you by day,
or the moon by night.10
121:7 The Lord will protect you from all harm;
he will protect your life.
121:8 The Lord will protect you in all you do,11
now and forevermore.
