International Standard Version
A Song of Ascents
The Guardian of God’s People
1I lift up my eyes toward the mountains—
from where will my help come?
2My help is from the LORD,
maker of heaven and earth.
4Look! The one who is guarding Israel
never sleeps and does not take naps.
5The LORD is your guardian;
the LORD is your shade at your right side.
6The sun will not ravage you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7The LORD will guard you from all evil,
preservingd your life.
from this time on and forever.
