(3) He will not.--The LXX. and Vulg. rightly, "may He not suffer," &c. The Hebrew cannot be a simple negative. That it is Israel which is addressed the next verse seems to prove.

Verse 3. - He will not suffer thy foot to be moved. The psalmist addresses himself with consolatory assurances. God will not allow any evil to approach him, so as to do him hurt. He that keepeth thee will not slumber. God does not sleep - his vigilance is unceasing (comp. Isaiah 27:3).
