God the Help of Those Who Seek Him
A Song of Ascents.
1I #Gen. 25:13; Is. 21:16; 60:7; Jer. 2:10; 49:28; Ezek. 27:21will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
2#(Jer. 3:23)My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
3#(Ps. 124:8)He will not allow your foot to be moved;
#1 Sam. 2:9; Prov. 3:23, 26He who keeps you will not slumber.
4Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is #(Ps. 127:1; Prov. 24:12); Is. 27:3your shade #Is. 25:4at your right hand.
6#Ps. 16:8The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
7The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall #Ps. 91:5; Is. 49:10; Jon. 4:8; Rev. 7:16preserve your soul.
8The Lord shall #Ps. 41:2preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
