Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 121

Verse 1

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

Hills — To Sion and Moriah, which are called the holy mountains.

Verse 5

The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

Shade — To keep thee from the burning heat of the sun.

Verse 6

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

Smite — With excessive heat.

Moon — With that cold and moisture which come into the air by it. Intemperate heats and colds are the springs of many diseases.
