Commentary Critical and Explanatory
on the Whole Bible

PSALM 121

      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.
