Psalm 121 for our kidnapped boys (Hebrew and English)

Psalms Chapter 121 תְּהִלִּים
א שִׁיר, לַמַּעֲלוֹת:
אֶשָּׂא עֵינַי, אֶל-הֶהָרִים– מֵאַיִן, יָבֹא עֶזְרִי. 1 A Song of Ascents.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: from whence shall my help come?
ב עֶזְרִי, מֵעִם יְהוָה– עֹשֵׂה, שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ. 2 My help cometh from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
ג אַל-יִתֵּן לַמּוֹט רַגְלֶךָ; אַל-יָנוּם, שֹׁמְרֶךָ. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
ד הִנֵּה לֹא-יָנוּם, וְלֹא יִישָׁן– שׁוֹמֵר, יִשְׂרָאֵל. 4 Behold, He that keepeth Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.
ה יְהוָה שֹׁמְרֶךָ; יְהוָה צִלְּךָ, עַל-יַד יְמִינֶךָ. 5 The LORD is thy keeper; the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
ו יוֹמָם, הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ לֹא-יַכֶּכָּה; וְיָרֵחַ בַּלָּיְלָה. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
ז יְהוָה, יִשְׁמָרְךָ מִכָּל-רָע: יִשְׁמֹר, אֶת-נַפְשֶׁךָ. 7 The LORD shall keep thee from all evil; He shall keep thy soul.
ח יְהוָה, יִשְׁמָר-צֵאתְךָ וּבוֹאֶךָ– מֵעַתָּה, וְעַד-עוֹלָם. 8 The LORD shall guard thy going out and thy coming in, from this time forth and for ever.

Dumbledoresarmy inspired me to put this up for our 3 boys kidnapped by Hamas terrorists more than a week ago and who are still missing. I know lots of people don’t keep bibles or Tehillim handy and lots of readers here aren’t religious at all, but it doesn’t hurt and just might help (tfu tfu, knock wood, throw salt over your shoulder) to read it for the boys’ safe return.

    I sung it, in Hebrew, without needing you crib sheet. Always my favourite psalm in school assembly it brought tears to my eyes for our poor boys and their so a.
    anxious families.

    Baruch Hashem they’ll be no more tears.

    Chairwoman — it is beautiful (unless I’m the one singing it, then you need to cover your ears, heh). I so echo your thoughts.
