Trust in God’s Protection

121 A song for the ascents.a

I lift up my eyes to the mountains;

whence will my help come?

My help is from Yahweh,

maker of heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to be moved;

he who protects you will not slumber.

Look, he will not slumber and he will not sleep—

he who protects Israel.

Yahweh is your protector;

Yahweh is your shade at your right hand.

The sun will not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

Yahweh will protect you from all evil;b

he will protect your life.

Yahweh will protect your going out and your coming in

from now until forever.
