I raise my eyes to the mountains: "Where will my help come?
My help will come from Yahweh, the creator of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot stumble
Your keeper will never slumber
Aye, the one keeping Israel will never slumber nor sleep.
Yahweh is your keeper
Yahweh is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not attack you by day nor the moon by night.
Yahweh will keep you from every kind of disaster
Yahweh will keep your life.
Yahweh will keep your trips out and your trips home
from now on--and until forever.
