My Help Comes from the Lord
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents.
1I #See Ps. 123:1 lift up my eyes to #Ps. 87:1; 133:3; Jer. 3:23; [Ps. 48:1]the hills.
From where does my help come?
Ps. 124:8; [Ps. 20:2] My help comes from the Lord,
who #See Ps. 115:15made heaven and earth.
3He will not #Ps. 66:9; Prov. 3:23, 26; [1 Sam. 2:9] let your foot be moved;
he who #Ps. 41:2; 127:1; [Isa. 27:3]; See Ps. 97:10keeps you will not slumber.
4Behold, he who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your #Ps. 91:1 shade on your #See Ps. 16:8right hand.
Isa. 49:10; Rev. 7:16 The sun shall not #2 Kgs. 4:19; Jonah 4:8strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7The Lord will #[See ver. 3 above]keep you from all evil;
he will #[See ver. 3 above]keep your life.
8The Lord will keep
your #Deut. 28:6; 31:2; [Num. 27:17; 1 Sam. 29:6; 1 Kgs. 3:7; Acts 1:21]going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.
