The Harvard Classics.  1909–14.
 
Book V
 
CXXI
 
Jehovah the Keeper of Israel
 
 
A Song of Ascents.
 
 
[1]  I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the mountains:
From whence shall my help come?
[2]  My help cometh from Jehovah,
Who made heaven and earth.
 
[3]  He 1 will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
[4]  Behold, he that keepeth Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.
[5]  Jehovah is thy keeper:
Jehovah is thy shade upon thy right hand.
[6]  The sun shall not smite thee by day,
Nor the moon by night.
[7]  Jehovah will keep thee from all evil;
He will keep thy soul.
[8]  Jehovah will keep thy going out and thy coming in
From this time forth and for evermore.
 
Note 1. Or, Let him not suffer … Let him not slumber that &c. [back]
