Psalm 121

My Help Comes from the Lord

1 I a WILL lift up my eyes to the hills -
From whence comes my help?
2 b My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

3 c He will not allow your foot to 1 be moved;
d He who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD is your 2 keeper;
The LORD is e your shade f at your right hand.
6 g The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD shall 3 preserve you from all evil;
He shall h preserve your soul.
8 The LORD shall i preserve 4 your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
