Quote to Consider

Robert Davidson: "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).
