Psalm 121

Psalm 121

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

I look up to the mountains—
    does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth!

He will not let you stumble;
    the one who watches over you will not slumber.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
    never slumbers or sleeps.

The Lord himself watches over you!
    The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon at night.

The Lord keeps you from all harm
    and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
    both now and forever.

Awurade ne wo hwɛfo; ɔwɔ wo nkyɛn bɔ wo ho ban. Owia renhye wo awia, na ɔsram nso renhyerɛn wo so anadwo. Awurade bɛbɔ wo ho ban afi bɔne nyinaa ho. Ɔbɛhwɛ wo so. Awurade bɛhwɛ w’adifi ne wo fie ba so afi mprenpren de akosi daa.
