Trust in God’s Protection

A song for the ascents.[a]

121 I lift up my eyes to the mountains;
whence will my help come?
My help is from Yahweh,
maker of heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to be moved;
he who protects you will not slumber.
Look, he will not slumber and he will not sleep—
he who protects Israel.
Yahweh is your protector;
Yahweh is your shade at your right hand.
The sun will not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
Yahweh will protect you from all evil;[b]
he will protect your life.
Yahweh will protect your going out and your coming in
from now until forever.


  1. Psalm 121:1 The Hebrew Bible counts the superscription as the first verse of the psalm
  2. Psalm 121:7 Or “all calamity”
