121:1 A Song of Ascents. I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: from whence shall my help come?

121:2 My help cometh from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber.

121:4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.

121:5 the Lord is thy keeper; the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

121:7 the Lord shall keep thee from all evil; He shall keep thy soul.

121:8 the Lord shall guard thy going out and thy coming in, from this time forth and for ever.
