121 A song for the ascents.a
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains;
whence will my help come?
maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved;
he who protects you will not slumber.
4 Look, he will not slumber and he will not sleep—
he who protects Israel.
Yahweh is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun will not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 Yahweh will protect you from all evil;b
he will protect your life.
8 Yahweh will protect your going out and your coming in
from now until forever.
