Ps 121:1-8. God's guardian care of His people celebrated.
1. I will lift up mine eyes--expresses desire (compare Ps 25:1), mingled with expectation. The last clause, read as a question, is answered,
2. by avowing God to be the helper, of whose ability His creative power is a pledge (Ps 115:15), to which, 3, 4. His sleepless vigilance is added. to be moved--(Compare Ps 38:16 66:9). 5. upon thy right hand--a protector's place (Ps 109:31 110:5). 6-8. God keeps His people at all times and in all perils. nor the moon by night--poetically represents the dangers of the night, over which the moon presides (Ge 1:16).
8. thy going out, &c.--all thy ways (De 28:19 Ps 104:23). evermore--includes a future state.
