Psalms - Chapter 121

The King James Version Basic English Version (BBE)

1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

1 <A Song of the going up.> My eyes are lifted up to the hills: O where will my help come from?

2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

2 Your help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

3 May he not let your foot be moved: no need of sleep has he who keeps you.

4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

4 See, the eyes of Israel's keeper will not be shut in sleep.

5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

5 The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand.

6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

6 You will not be touched by the sun in the day, or by the moon at night.

7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

7 The Lord will keep you safe from all evil; he will take care of your soul.

8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

8 The Lord will keep watch over your going out and your coming in, from this time and for ever.
