A song for going up to the Temple.
1 I look up to the hills,
but where will my help really come from?
2 My help will come from the LORD,
the Creator of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let you fall.
Your Protector will not fall asleep.
4 Israel’s Protector does not get tired.
He never sleeps.
5 The LORD is your Protector.
The LORD stands by your side, shading and protecting you.
6 The sun cannot harm you during the day,
and the moon cannot harm you at night.
7 The LORD will protect you from every danger.
He will protect your soul.
8 The LORD will protect you as you come and go,* come and go This may refer to going to war.
both now and forever!
*121:8 come and go This may refer to going to war.
