SHIR LAMA'ALOT
A SONG OF ASCENTS

 

Shir lama`alot. Esa einai el heharim:
me'ayin yavo ezriy?

Ezriy me'im A-onai,
ose shamaim ve'aretz.

Al yiten lammot raglecha
al yanum shomerecha.

Hineh,
lo yanum velo yiyshan shomer yisrael.

A-onai shomerecha
A-onai tsilecha al yad yeminecha.

yomam hashemesh lo yakeka
veyareach balailah.

A-onai yishmarecha mikol ra'ah
yishmor et nafshecha.

Adonai yishmar tsetcha ubo'echa
me'ata ve'ad olam.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains:
from whence shall my help come?

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

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

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

the Lord is thy keeper;
the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

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

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

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