121 I ·look up [L raise my eyes] to the hills [C the hills surrounding Zion, the location of the Temple], but where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth [Gen. 1].
3 He will not let ·you be defeated [L your feet be moved/slip]. He who ·guards [watches] you never sleeps. 4 He who ·guards [watches] Israel never ·rests [sleeps] or ·sleeps [slumbers].
5 The Lord ·guards [watches] you. The Lord is the shade ·that protects you from the sun [L at your hand, your right hand; 91:1]. 6 The sun cannot ·hurt [L strike] you during the day, and the moon cannot ·hurt [L strike] you at night. 7 The Lord will ·protect [guard; watch] you from all ·dangers [trouble; evil]; he will ·guard [watch] your life. 8 The Lord will ·guard [watch] you as you come and go, both now and forever.
