1 I [will]1 lift up mine eyes [unto]2 the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help [cometh]3 from the LORD, [which]4 made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: [he]5 that keepeth thee [will]1 not [slumber]6. 4 [Behold,]7 he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The [LORD]8 is thy keeper: [the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.]9 7 The LORD shall preserve thee from [all]7 evil: [he shall]10 preserve thy soul. 8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time [forth, and even for evermore]11.
