Psalm chapter 121

1
[A song of ascents.] I raise my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from?
2
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3
He will not allow your foot to slip; your Protector will not slumber.
4
Indeed, the Protector of Israel does not slumber or sleep.
5
The LORD protects you; the LORD is a shelter right by your side.
6
The sun will not strike you by day, or the moon by night.
7
The LORD will protect you from all harm; He will protect your life.
8
The LORD will protect your coming and going both now and forever.

Psalm chapter 122

1
[A Davidic song of ascents.] I rejoiced with those who said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD."
2
Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem--
3
Jerusalem, built as a city [should be], solidly joined together,
4
where the tribes, the tribes of the LORD, go up to give thanks to the name of the LORD. (This is an ordinance for Israel.)
5
There, thrones for judgment are placed, thrones of the house of David.
6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May those who love you prosper;
7
may there be peace within your walls, prosperity within your fortresses."
8
Because of my brothers and friends, I will say, "Peace be with you."
9
Because of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.

Psalm chapter 123

1
[A song of ascents.] I lift my eyes to You, the One enthroned in heaven.
2
Like a servant's eyes on His master's hand, like a servant girl's eyes on her mistress's hand, so our eyes are on the LORD our God until He shows us favor.
3
Show us favor, LORD, show us favor, for we've had more than enough contempt.
4
We've had more than enough scorn from the arrogant [and] contempt from the proud.

Psalm chapter 124

1
[A Davidic song of ascents.] If the LORD had not been on our side-- let Israel say--
2
If the LORD had not been on our side when men attacked us,
3
then they would have swallowed us alive in their burning anger against us.
4
Then the waters would have engulfed us; the torrent would have swept over us;
5
the raging waters would have swept over us.
6
Praise the LORD, who has not let us be ripped apart by their teeth.
7
We have escaped like a bird from the hunter's net; the net is torn, and we have escaped.
8
Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm chapter 125

1
[A song of ascents.] Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion. It cannot be shaken; it remains forever.
2
Jerusalem-- the mountains surround her. And the LORD surrounds His people, both now and forever.
3
The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous, so that the righteous will not apply their hands to injustice.
4
Do what is good, LORD, to the good, to those whose hearts are upright.
5
But as for those who turn aside to crooked ways, the LORD will banish them with the evildoers. Peace be with Israel.
