1 (A Song of degrees.)
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
[KJV mgn rendering suggests that idolators looked to the hills for salvation]
2 My help cometh from Yahweh, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 Yahweh is thy keeper: Yahweh is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 Yahweh shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 Yahweh shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
