Original Language Tools
No; my confidence is in God only. Or, we must lift up our eyes above the hills; we must look to God who makes all earthly things to us what they are. We must see all our help in God; from him we must expect it, in his own way and time. This psalm teaches us to comfort ourselves in the Lord, when difficulties and dangers are greatest. It is almighty wisdom that contrives, and almighty power that works the safety of those that put themselves under God's protection. He is a wakeful, watchful Keeper; he is never weary; he not only does not sleep, but he does not so much as slumber.
Under this shade they may sit with delight and assurance. He is always near his people for their protection and refreshment. The right hand is the working hand; let them but turn to their duty, and they shall find God ready to give them success. He will take care that his people shall not fall.
Thou shalt not be hurt, neither by the open assaults, nor by the secret attempts of thine enemies. The Lord shall prevent the evil thou fearest, and sanctify, remove, or lighten the evil thou feelest. He will preserve the soul, that it be not defiled by sin, and disturbed by affliction; he will preserve it from perishing eternally. He will keep thee in life and death; going out to thy labour in the morning of thy days, and coming home to thy rest when the evening of old age calls thee in.
It is a protection for life. The Spirit, who is their Preserver and Comforter, shall abide with them for ever. The physical: disease, injury, accident, war, infirmity, or natural disasters. The economic: recession, depression, unemployment, outsourcing, downsizing, insolvency, debt, or theft. The spiritual: doubt, sin, evil, corruption, fundamentalism, extremism, or false teaching. In fact, consider giving the congregation a minute or two to discuss the greatest fears and threats that they or a loved one faces right now.
Send out an email ahead of worship and ask people to reflect on the question, or even to bring written responses that can be collected and set before the altar of God. Or ask them to share a fear with a neighbor. Modern translations obscure the poetic, chiastic structure of the sentence. In this overly literal translation, a hyphen indicates when several English words are translating one Hebrew word:.

The psalmist does not look to nature for help! Those hills, after all, might be hiding some threat, some predator.
Psalm 121 Coloring and Activity Book : God Cares for Me
The hills may obscure some threat, but they also by their very existence bear witness to the creator. That is often the best way to preach a psalm -- to teach and preach about the prayer in order that the congregation may enter into the poem and become the speaker. If you gave people a chance to name the threats and fears they face, invite them to stare those fears down by saying these words out loud: My help comes from the Lord, who make heaven and earth. The rest of the psalm is a blessing.
Many interpreters imagine a change of speaker, most likely a priestly figure -- or at least someone speaking priestly words of blessing.
