Today's Bible Reading
previous next Psalm 121

Assurance of God's Protection
A Song of Ascents.

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
from where will my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
He who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD is your keeper;
the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
The LORD will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time on and forevermore.

Note: Today's Gospel reading is Luke 22:63-71

That stain is the rust the Lord Almighty refers to: "Nay, rust has fallen upon their hearts for what they have earned."
