    Thy going out and thy coming in - Night and day - in all thy business and undertakings; and this through the whole course of thy life: for evermore.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 121:8

    The Lord shall preserve thou going out and thy coming in - Preserve thee in going out and coming in; in going from thy dwelling, and returning to it; in going from home and coming back; that is, everywhere, and at all times. Compare Deuteronomy 28:6. See the notes also at Job 5:24. "From this time forth, and even forevermore." Through this life and for ever.

No evil that will endanger their salvation can befal them; nothing can happen to them here but what God shall see to be conducive to their ultimate good; and in the heavenly world they shall be safe forever from every kind of evil, for in that world there will be no sin, and consequently no need of discipline to prepare them for the future.

    "In foreign realms, and lands remote,

    Supported by thy care,

    Through burning climes they pass unhurt,

    And breathe in tainted air.

    High on the broken wave,

    They know thou art not slow to hear,

    Nor impotent to save.

    The storm is laid - the winds retire,

    Obedient to thy will;

    The sea that roars at thy command,

    At thy command is still.

    In midst of dangers, fears, and death,
