Psalm 121 – He will keep your life

Psalm 121

1   I lift up my eyes to the hills —
from where will my help come?
2   My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.

3   He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
4   He who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5   The LORD is your keeper;
the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
6The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7   The LORD will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
8   The LORD will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time on and forevermore.
