Trust in God’s Protection
A song for the ascents.#The Hebrew Bible counts the superscription as the first verse of the psalm
1I lift up my eyes to the mountains;
whence will my help come?
2My help is from Yahweh,
maker of heaven and earth.
3He will not allow your foot to be moved;
he who protects you will not slumber.
4Look, he will not slumber and he will not sleep—
he who protects Israel.
5Yahweh is your protector;
Yahweh is your shade at your right hand.
6The sun will not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7Yahweh will protect you from all evil;#Or “all calamity”
he will protect your life.
8Yahweh will protect your going out and your coming in
from now until forever.
