1 A Canticle in steps. I have lifted up my eyes to the mountains; from thence help will come to me.
2 My help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
3 May he not allow your foot to be moved, and may he not slumber, who guards you.
4 Behold, he who guards Israel will neither sleep, nor slumber.
5 The Lord is your keeper, the Lord is your protection, above your right hand.
6 The sun will not burn you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord guards you from all evil. May the Lord guard your soul.
8 May the Lord guard your entrance and your exit, from this time forward and even forever.
1 Kings 17:1-6
1 And Elijah the Tishbite, from the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the Lord lives, the God of Israel, in whose sight I stand, there shall not be dew or rain during these years, except by the words of my mouth."
2 And the word of the Lord came to him, saying:
3 "Withdraw from here, and go toward the east, and hide at the torrent Cherith, which is opposite the Jordan.
4 And there you shall drink from the torrent. And I have instructed the ravens to feed you there."
5 Therefore, he went and acted in accord with the word of the Lord. And going away, he settled by the torrent Cherith, which is opposite the Jordan.
6 And the ravens carried bread and flesh to him in the morning, and likewise bread and flesh in the evening. And he drank from the torrent.
