June 2, 2023 - Psalms 120-124

In these psalms some of the most well-known beloved lines are found:


“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?

My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth” (21:1-2).


“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!’” (122:1)


“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!” (122:6)


“Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us” (123:3)


“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side--let Israel now say--

if it had not been the Lord who was on our side . . .” (124:1-2).


For us these words are so deeply woven into the fabric of our lives. These lines are like old friends. We hear or read them and immediately think, “Ah! There’s that, again!” And we find ourselves pausing and reflecting and settling back into the Scriptures wherever we might find ourselves at the moment. And we find rest and joy and hope. The Word of God so encourages us and so fills our lives!


The B-I-B-L-E,

Yes, that’s the book for me;

I stand alone on the Word of God

The B-I-B-L-E.
