King James Version

Psalm 121

1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which 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 shall 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 preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

New International Reader's Version

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.
