New International Version - UK

Psalm 121

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains –
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip –
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you –
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm –
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and for evermore.

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.
