Texts & translations
Vulgate (Psalm 120)
1 Levavi oculos meos in montes : unde veniet auxilium mihi.
2 Auxilium meum a Domino : qui fecit caelum et terram.
3 Non det in commotionem pedem tuum : neque dormitet qui custodit te.
4 Ecce non dormitabit neque dormiet : qui custodit Israel.
5 Dominus custodit te : Dominus protectio tua, super manum dexteram tuam.
6 Per diem sol non uret te : neque luna per noctem.
7 Dominus custodit te ab omni malo : custodiat animam tuam Dominus.
8 Dominus custodiat introitum tuum, et exitum tuum : ex hoc nunc, et usque in saeculum.
Church of England 1662 Book of Common Prayer
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills : from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh even from the Lord : who hath made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved : and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel : shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord himself is thy keeper : the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand;
6 So that the sun shall not burn thee by day : neither the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil : yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in : from this time forth for evermore.
