The Lord the Keeper of Israel.
A Song of [a]Ascents.
1I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]—
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber [briefly] nor sleep [soundly].
The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your life.
The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in [everything that you do]
From this time forth and forever.
