Who Does the Lord Keep?

The Lord keeps those who look to Him for help
=> who know where their help comes from!

Psalm 121

1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills [around Jerusalem, to sacred Mount Zion and Mount Moriah]—From whence shall my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.

From NetBible Ps 121:1 & Ps 121:2

  • help[05828] = to give protective aid, support

3 He will not allow your foot to slip or to be moved; He Who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand [the side not carrying a shield].
6 The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life.
8 The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
