Psalm 121 - "Ascending Trust"

A Song of Ascents.

    [1] I lift up my eyes to the hills.
        From where does my help come?
    [2] My help comes from the LORD,
        who made heaven and earth.
    
    [3] He will not let your foot be moved;
        he who keeps you will not slumber.
    [4] Behold, he who keeps Israel
        will neither slumber nor sleep.
    
    [5] The LORD is your keeper;
        the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
    [6] The sun shall not strike you by day,
        nor the moon by night.
    
    [7] The LORD will keep you from all evil;
        he will keep your life.
    [8] The LORD will keep
        your going out and your coming in
        from this time forth and forevermore.

(Psalm 121 ESV)


    [1] Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples [2] and said to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it. [3] If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’” [4] And they went away and found a colt tied at a door outside in the street, and they untied it. [5] And some of those standing there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” [6] And they told them what Jesus had said, and they let them go. [7] And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and he sat on it. [8] And many spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. [9] And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! [10] Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!”

    [11] And he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple. And when he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
