Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Psalm 121. What sort of life circumstances would this psalm apply to the most? Have you ever drawn encouragement from this psalm? In what circumstances?
  2. Why does the psalmist lift his eyes to the hills? What is the significance of the hills?
  3. What does the psalmist emphasize about God and his nature? How do these truths bolster confidence in his help?
  4. Take note of the use of the word “keep.” In the OT, this word can mean to observe (i.e. to keep a commandment) or to guard (i.e. to protect). What does it mean that the Lord is your keeper?
  5. Think about and/or discuss verse 7, in particular the words “all evil.” What does this verse promise? Read the reflection on page 3. How does this apply?
