Encountering the Book of Psalms
By C. Hassell Bullock
Life Lessons: Book of Psalms
By Max Lucado
 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.
 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.
 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.
