Psalms of Ascents

Series Description

Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place?     

Psalm 24:3


The Psalms of Ascents (120-134) are a collection of diverse songs for God's people to sing and meditate on as they approach God in worship. We don't spend much time thinking about how to approach God on a daily basis, but many of these psalms will cause us to more carefully consider how we come before our God. One explanation for these set of psalms being grouped together is that Israelites would worshipfully sing them while literally journeying up to Jerusalem for certain Jewish festivals. Join us this summer as we explore more of the Psalter.
