Amplified Bible

Psalm 121

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.

Psalm 121

Psalm 121

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

I look up to the mountains.
    Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord.
    He is the Maker of heaven and earth.

He won’t let your foot slip.
    He who watches over you won’t get tired.
In fact, he who watches over Israel
    won’t get tired or go to sleep.

The Lord watches over you.
    The Lord is like a shade tree at your right hand.
The sun won’t harm you during the day.
    The moon won’t harm you during the night.

The Lord will keep you from every kind of harm.
    He will watch over your life.
The Lord will watch over your life no matter where you go,
    both now and forever.
