Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the hillsó
   from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
   who made heaven and earth.


He will not let your foot be moved;
   he who keeps you will not slumber.
He who keeps Israel
   will neither slumber nor sleep.


The Lord is your keeper;
   the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
   nor the moon by night.



The Lord will keep you from all evil;
   he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep
   your going out and your coming in
   from this time on and for evermore







'Feuch air fear coimhead Israil Cadal chan aom no suain.'
(The Shepherd that keeps Israel, He slumbers not nor sleeps.)
The Scottish people called it "The Traveler's Psalm.



Psalm 121
from the Scottish Psalter
A Song of degrees.

8,6,8,6
1I to the hills will lift mine eyes,

from whence doth come mine aid.

2My safety cometh from the Lord,

who heavín and earth hath made.

3Thy foot heíll not let slide, nor will

he slumber that thee keeps.

4Behold, he that keeps Israel,

he slumbers not, nor sleeps.

5The Lord thee keeps, the Lord thy shade

on thy right hand doth stay:

6The moon by night thee shall not smite,

nor yet the sun by day.

7The Lord shall keep thy soul; he shall

preserve thee from all ill.

8Henceforth thy going out and in

God keep for ever will.
