Gleanings from the Songs of Ascents (Psalm 120:1-7)

DeLacy Andrews, January 29, 2012
Part of the Guest Speaker series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The Psalms of Ascent - Psalm 120 through 134 - provide for us snapshots of what it was like for Israel to go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. These Psalms are written in a progression, starting out in a lament (Ps. 120), and culminating in shouts of praise to the Lord (Ps. 134). Pastor Andrews skillfully weaves these Psalms together to take us on our own journey to Jerusalem.

Psalm 120

A Song of Ascents.

120:1 In my distress I called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
Deliver me, O Lord,
from lying lips,
from a deceitful tongue.

What shall be given to you,
and what more shall be done to you,
you deceitful tongue?
A warrior's sharp arrows,
with glowing coals of the broom tree!

Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech,
that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!
Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war! (ESV)
