1A song of ascents:
If I raise my eyes to the hills,
from where will my help come?
2My help comes from Adonai,
the maker of heaven and earth.
3He will not let your foot slip —
your guardian is not asleep.
4No, the guardian of Isra’el
never slumbers or sleeps.
5Adonai is your guardian; at your right hand
Adonai provides you with shade —
6the sun can’t strike you during the day
or even the moon at night.
7Adonai will guard you against all harm;
he will guard your life.
8Adonai will guard your coming and going
from now on and forever.
