Psalms - Chapters 121-150

121:1: <> I will lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from?
121:2: My help comes from Yahweh, Who made heaven and earth.
121:3: He will not allow your foot to be moved. He who keeps you will not slumber.
121:4: Behold, he who keeps Israel Will neither slumber nor sleep.
121:5: Yahweh is your keeper. Yahweh is your shade on your right hand.
121:6: The sun will not harm you by day, Nor the moon by night.
121:7: Yahweh will keep you from all evil. He will keep your soul.
121:8: Yahweh will keep your going out and your coming in, From this time forth, and forevermore.

122:1: <> I was glad when they said to me, "Let's go to Yahweh's house!"
122:2: Our feet are standing within your gates, Jerusalem;
122:3: Jerusalem, that is built as a city that is compact together;
122:4: Where the tribes go up, even Yah's tribes, According to an ordinance for Israel, To give thanks to the name of Yahweh.
122:5: For there are set thrones for judgment, The thrones of David's house.
122:6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love you will prosper.
122:7: Peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces.
122:8: For my brothers' and companions' sakes, I will now say, "Peace be within you."
122:9: For the sake of the house of Yahweh our God, I will seek your good.

123:1: <> To you I do lift up my eyes, You who sit in the heavens.
123:2: Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress; So our eyes look to Yahweh, our God, Until he has mercy on us.
123:3: Have mercy on us, Yahweh, have mercy on us, For we have endured much contempt.
123:4: Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease, With the contempt of the proud.

124:1: <> If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, Let Israel now say,
124:2: If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, When men rose up against us;
124:3: Then they would have swallowed us up alive, When their wrath was kindled against us;
124:4: Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, The stream would have gone over our soul;
124:5: Then the proud waters would have gone over our soul.
124:6: Blessed be Yahweh, Who has not given us as a prey to their teeth.
124:7: Our soul has escaped like a bird out of the fowler's snare. The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
124:8: Our help is in the name of Yahweh, Who made heaven and earth.

125:1: <> Those who trust in Yahweh are as Mount Zion, Which can't be moved, but remains forever.
125:2: As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So Yahweh surrounds his people from this time forth and forevermore.
125:3: For the scepter of wickedness won't remain over the allotment of the righteous; So that the righteous won't use their hands to do evil.
125:4: Do good, Yahweh, to those who are good, To those who are upright in their hearts.
125:5: But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, Yahweh will lead them away with the workers of iniquity. Peace be on Israel.

126:1: <> When Yahweh brought back those who returned to Zion, We were like those who dream.
126:2: Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then they said among the nations, "Yahweh has done great things for them."
126:3: Yahweh has done great things for us, And we are glad.
126:4: Restore our fortunes again, Yahweh, Like the streams in the Negev.
126:5: Those who sow in tears will reap in joy.
126:6: He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing, Will assuredly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves.

127:1: <> Unless Yahweh builds the house, They labor in vain who build it. Unless Yahweh watches over the city, The watchman guards it in vain.
127:2: It is vain for you to rise up early, To stay up late, Eating the bread of toil; For he gives sleep to his loved ones.
127:3: Behold, children are a heritage of Yahweh. The fruit of the womb is his reward.
127:4: As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, So are the children of youth.
127:5: Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them. They won't be disappointed when they speak with their enemies in the gate

128:1: <> Blessed is everyone who fears Yahweh, Who walks in his ways.
128:2: For you will eat the labor of your hands. You will be happy, and it will be well with you.
128:3: Your wife will be as a fruitful vine, In the innermost parts of your house; Your children like olive plants, Around your table.
128:4: Behold, thus is the man blessed who fears Yahweh.
128:5: May Yahweh bless you out of Zion, And may you see the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life.
128:6: Yes, may you see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.

129:1: <> Many times they have afflicted me from my youth up. Let Israel now say,
129:2: Many times they have afflicted me from my youth up, Yet they have not prevailed against me.
129:3: The plowers plowed on my back. They made their furrows long.
129:4: Yahweh is righteous. He has cut apart the cords of the wicked.
129:5: Let them be disappointed and turned backward, All those who hate Zion.
129:6: Let them be as the grass on the housetops, Which withers before it grows up;
129:7: With which the reaper doesn't fill his hand, Nor he who binds sheaves, his bosom.
129:8: Neither do those who go by say, "The blessing of Yahweh be on you. We bless you in the name of Yahweh."

130:1: <> Out of the depths I have cried to you, Yahweh.
130:2: Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my petitions.
130:3: If you, Yah, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?
130:4: But there is forgiveness with you, Therefore you are feared.
130:5: I wait for Yahweh. My soul waits. I hope in his word.
130:6: My soul longs for the Lord more than watchmen long for the morning; More than watchmen for the morning.
130:7: Israel, hope in Yahweh, For with Yahweh there is loving kindness. With him is abundant redemption.
130:8: He will redeem Israel from all their sins.

131:1: <> Yahweh, my heart isn't haughty, nor my eyes lofty; Nor do I concern myself with great matters, Or things too wonderful for me.
131:2: Surely I have stilled and quieted my soul, Like a weaned child with his mother, Like a weaned child is my soul within me.
131:3: Israel, hope in Yahweh, From this time forth and forevermore.

132:1: <> Yahweh, remember David and all his affliction,
132:2: How he swore to Yahweh, And vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob:
132:3: "Surely I will not come into the structure of my house, Nor go up into my bed;
132:4: I will not give sleep to my eyes, Or slumber to my eyelids;
132:5: Until I find out a place for Yahweh, A dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
132:6: Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah. We found it in the field of Jaar:
132:7: "We will go into his dwelling place. We will worship at his footstool.
132:8: Arise, Yahweh, into your resting place; You, and the ark of your strength.
132:9: Let your priest be clothed with righteousness. Let your saints shout for joy!"
132:10: For your servant David's sake, Don't turn away the face of your anointed one.
132:11: Yahweh has sworn to David in truth. He will not turn from it: "I will set the fruit of your body on your throne.
132:12: If your children will keep my covenant, My testimony that I will teach them, Their children also will sit on your throne forevermore."
132:13: For Yahweh has chosen Zion. He has desired it for his habitation.
132:14: "This is my resting place forever. Here I will live, for I have desired it.
132:15: I will abundantly bless her provision. I will satisfy her poor with bread.
132:16: Her priests I will also clothe with salvation. Her saints will shout aloud for joy.
132:17: There I will make the horn of David to bud. I have ordained a lamp for my anointed.
132:18: I will clothe his enemies with shame, But on himself, his crown will be resplendant."

133:1: <> See how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to live together in unity!
133:2: It is like the precious oil on the head, That ran down on the beard, Even Aaron's beard; That came down on the edge of his robes;
133:3: Like the dew of Hermon, That comes down on the hills of Zion: For there Yahweh gives the blessing, Even life forevermore.

134:1: <> Look! Praise Yahweh, all you servants of Yahweh, Who stand by night in Yahweh's house!
134:2: Lift up your hands in the sanctuary. Praise Yahweh!
134:3: May Yahweh bless you from Zion; Even he who made heaven and earth.

135:1: Praise Yah! Praise the name of Yahweh! Praise him, you servants of Yahweh,
135:2: You who stand in the house of Yahweh, In the courts of our God's house.
135:3: Praise Yah, for Yahweh is good. Sing praises to his name, for that is pleasant.
135:4: For Yah has chosen Jacob for himself; Israel for his own possession.
135:5: For I know that Yahweh is great, That our Lord is above all gods.
135:6: Whatever Yahweh pleased, that he has done, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps;
135:7: Who causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings with the rain; Who brings forth the wind out of his treasuries;
135:8: Who struck the firstborn of Egypt, Both of man and animal;
135:9: Who sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, Egypt, On Pharaoh, and on all his servants;
135:10: Who struck many nations, And killed mighty kings,
135:11: Sihon king of the Amorites, Og king of Bashan, And all the kingdoms of Canaan,
135:12: And gave their land for a heritage, A heritage to Israel, his people.
135:13: Your name, Yahweh, endures forever; Your renown, Yahweh, throughout all generations.
135:14: For Yahweh will judge his people, And have compassion on his servants.
135:15: The idols of the nations are silver and gold, The work of men's hands.
135:16: They have mouths, but they can't speak; They have eyes, but they can't see;
135:17: They have ears, but they can't hear; Neither is there any breath in their mouths.
135:18: Those who make them will be like them; Yes, everyone who trusts in them.
135:19: House of Israel, praise Yahweh! House of Aaron, praise Yahweh!
135:20: House of Levi, praise Yahweh! You who fear Yahweh, praise Yahweh!
135:21: Blessed be Yahweh from Zion, Who dwells at Jerusalem. Praise Yah!
