Psalms, Chapter 121

 

1A song of ascents.

I raise my eyes toward the mountains.*

From whence shall come my help?a

2My help comes from the LORD,

the maker of heaven and earth.b

3He will not allow your foot to slip;c

or your guardian to sleep.

4Behold, the guardian of Israel

never slumbers nor sleeps.

5*The LORD is your guardian;

the LORD is your shade

at your right hand.d

6By day the sun will not strike you,

nor the moon by night.e

7The LORD will guard you from all evil;

he will guard your soul.f

8The LORD will guard your coming and going

both now and forever.g

* [Psalm 121] A blessing given to someone embarking on a dangerous journey whether a soldier going on a campaign or a pilgrim returning home from the Temple. People look anxiously at the wooded hills. Will God protect them on their journey (Ps 121:1)? The speaker declares that God is not confined to a place or a time (Ps 121:2), that every step is guarded (Ps 121:34); night and day (Ps 121:56) God watches over their every movement (Ps 121:78).
