From KJV Psalms 121:1-8

Psalms 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
Psalms 121:2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
Psalms 121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Psalms 121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Psalms 121:5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
Psalms 121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
Psalms 121:7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
Psalms 121:8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Psalms 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

This verse should be read and understood as
"Shall I lift up mine eyes unto the hills ...?"
instead of "I will lift up...".

"No, I will not. I will not lift up my eyes to the hills for my help.
It is because my help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth...."
This is what the Psalmist wants to say.
Around the city of Jerusalem surrounds the hillsides, from where the
Israelites might see the soldiers of other country coming to save them. So the Psalmist is tempted to look around the hillsides for the foreign soldiers coming up every time when he is in need instead of looking for the help from the Lord.

I have been blessed with this text with this meaning just as explained above. The Hebrew word for this verse indicates QUERY...I mean, by "whence".

Please forgive me for my poor English.

but please be respectful of those that do and to Christendom in general.

People from all walks of life and backgrounds of faith are welcome here,
including the backslidden and nonbelievers, as well.

We may not all agree... but we can agree to disagree, at least.

However, any potential disagreements still need to remain civil in nature, and should stay as such.

Please, just debate the points of your position, if necessary, and refrain from ad hominem attacks.
Slandering and name calling serve no productive purpose.

Posting rules are based upon decent conduct and generally acceptable chat behavior and,

Please refrain from using offensive language or obscenely suggestive innuendo.

Usernames that are not becoming of basic common decency and morality are not to be used and may possibly result in membership cancellation.

Refusing to follow forum rules may result in membership cancellation and possibly some or all applicable posts being deleted and if necessary... entire threads.

If you feel these things to be unacceptable, please find another forum to post on.Thank you.
