Quote to Consider
"The Songs of Ascents help us to enter into what worship
meant for those who journeyed to Jerusalem for the great
festivals of the religious year. There is the joyful
celebration of Jerusalem/Zion as the place where God dwells
among his people—Jerusalem, the center of the nation’s
religious and political life and thus associated with the
Davidic dynasty (Psalms 122; 132). There is the recognition
that the Lord, maker of heaven and earth, is a God who is
compassionate, the God to whom his people can confidently
turn, whatever the difficulties they face (Psalms 120; 123;
129; 132). Worship provides the context for celebrating the
joys of family life and affirming the unity which binds
together the wider family of God (Psalms 127; 128; 133).
Here there is space for eager expectancy (Psalm 130), quiet
trust (Psalm 131), joyful thanksgiving, and praise (Psalms
124; 134)" (The Vitality of Worship, p. 434).
