Psalm 121 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

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”

Psalm 121 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm
    he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.
