Psalm 121

Assurance of God’s Protection

A Song of Ascents.

1

I lift up my eyes to the hills—

from where will my help come?

2

My help comes from the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.

 

3

He will not let your foot be moved;

he who keeps you will not slumber.

4

He who keeps Israel

will neither slumber nor sleep.

 

5

The Lord is your keeper;

the Lord is your shade at your right hand.

6

The sun shall not strike you by day,

nor the moon by night.

 

7

The Lord will keep you from all evil;

he will keep your life.

8

The Lord will keep

your going out and your coming in

from this time on and forevermore.

Verses 5–7

It is very grievous to a good man, to be cast into, and kept in the company of the wicked, from whom he hopes to be for ever separated. See here the character of a good man; he is for living peaceably with all men. And let us follow David as he prefigured Christ; in our distress let us cry unto the Lord, and he will hear us. Let us follow after peace and holiness, striving to overcome evil with good.
