Psalms: Nourishment for the Soul (part eighteen)
Psalm 122 is a call to worship and a prayer for peace. This psalm of ascent was traditionally recited by the Israelites upon their pilgrimage to Jerusalem during their required feasts. Whereas Psalm 48 emphasized Jerusalem as a secure fortress, Psalm 122 features Jerusalem as a worship center for God’s people. There the Israelites gathered together as a worshiping community to exalt their God and give thanks. Do you worship God with your soul in the context of community?
