Psalm 121

God the Help of Those Who Seek Him

A Song of Ascents.

1 I awill lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help?

2 bMy help comes from the Lord,

Who made heaven and earth.

3 cHe will not allow your foot to 1be moved;

dHe who keeps you will not slumber.

4 Behold, He who keeps Israel

Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is your 2keeper;

The Lord is eyour shade fat your right hand.

6 gThe sun shall not strike you by day,

Nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall 3preserve you from all evil;

He shall hpreserve your soul.

8 The Lord shall ipreserve 4your going out and your coming in

From this time forth, and even forevermore.

Psalm 123

Prayer for Relief from Contempt

A Song of Ascents.

1 Unto You aI lift up my eyes,

O You bwho dwell in the heavens.

2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters,

As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,

cSo our eyes look to the Lord our


Until He has mercy on us.

3 Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us!

For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

4 Our soul is exceedingly filled

With the scorn of those who are at ease,

With the contempt of the proud.

Psalm 124

The Lord The Defense of His People

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

1 “If it had not been the Lord who was on our aside,”

bLet Israel now say—

2 “If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,

When men rose up against us,

3 Then they would have cswallowed us alive,

When their wrath was kindled against us;

4 Then the waters would have overwhelmed us,

The stream would have 1gone over our soul;

5 Then the swollen waters

Would have 2gone over our soul.”

6 Blessed be the Lord,

Who has not given us as prey to their teeth.

7 dOur soul has escaped eas a bird from the snare of the 3fowlers;

The snare is broken, and we have escaped.

8 fOur help is in the name of the Lord,

gWho made heaven and earth.

Psalm 125

The Lord The Strength of His People

A Song of Ascents.

1 Those who trust in the Lord

Are like Mount Zion,

Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.

2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,

So the Lord surrounds His people

From this time forth and forever.

3 For athe scepter of wickedness shall not rest

On the land allotted to the righteous,

Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.

4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,

And to those who are upright in their hearts.

5 As for such as turn aside to their bcrooked ways,

The Lord shall lead them away

With the workers of iniquity.

cPeace be upon Israel!

Blessings of Those Who Fear the Lord

A Song of Ascents.

1 Blessed ais every one who fears the Lord,

Who walks in His ways.

2 bWhen you eat the 1labor of your hands,

You shall be happy, and it shall be cwell with you.

3 Your wife shall be dlike a fruitful vine

In the very heart of your house,

Your echildren flike olive plants

All around your table.

4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed

Who fears the Lord.

5 gThe Lord bless you out of Zion,

And may you see the good of Jerusalem

All the days of your life.

6 Yes, may you hsee your children’s children.

iPeace be upon Israel!

Psalm 129

Song of Victory Over Zion’s Enemies

A Song of Ascents.

1 “Many a time they have aafflicted 1me from bmy youth,”

cLet Israel now say—

2 “Many a time they have afflicted me from my youth;

Yet they have not prevailed against me.

3 The plowers plowed on my back;

They made their furrows long.”

4 The Lord is righteous;

He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked.

5 Let all those who hate Zion

Be put to shame and turned back.

6 Let them be as the dgrass on the housetops,

Which withers before it grows up,

7 With which the reaper does not fill his hand,

Nor he who binds sheaves, his 2arms.

8 Neither let those who pass by them say,

e“The blessing of the Lord be upon you;

We bless you in the name of the Lord!”

Psalm 130

A Song of Ascents.

1 Out aof the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;

2 Lord, hear my voice!

Let Your ears be attentive

To the voice of my supplications.

3 bIf You, Lord, should 1mark iniquities,

O Lord, who could cstand?

4 But there is dforgiveness with You,

That eYou may be feared.

5 fI wait for the Lord, my soul waits,

And gin His word I do hope.

6 hMy soul waits for the Lord

More than those who watch for the morning—

Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.

7 iO Israel, hope in the Lord;

For jwith the Lord there is mercy,

And with Him is abundant redemption.

8 And kHe shall redeem Israel

From all his iniquities.
