SHIR LAMA'ALOT 

Shir lama`alot. Esa einai el heharim:
me'ayin yavo ezri?

Ezri me'im Adonai
ose shamaim va'aretz.

Al yiten lamot ragleicha
al yanum shom'recha.

Hineh, lo yanum velo yishan
shomer yisrael.

A-onai/hashem shom'recha
A-onai/hashem tzil'cha al yad yeminecha.

Yomam hashemesh lo yakeka
veyare'ach balailah.

Adonai yishmor'cha mikol ra'ah
yishmor et nafshecha.

Adonai yishmor tzetcha uvo'echa
me'ata ve'ad olam.

A SONG OF ASCENTS 

I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains:
from whence shall my help come?

My help cometh from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved;
He that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, He that keepeth Israel
doth neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper;
The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall keep thee from all evil;
He shall keep thy soul.

The Lord shall guard thy going out and thy coming in,
from this time forth and for ever.
