A Song of Ascents. Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore. For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous stretch out their hands to do wrong. Do good, O LORD, to those who are good, and to those who are upright in their hearts! But those who turn aside to their crooked ways the LORD will lead away with evildoers! Peace be upon Israel!
These Songs of Ascents are precious guidance to us in this modern day and age. They guide us and encourage us, even though they were written 2500+/- years ago for the Israelites to sing as they went up to the Temple of the LORD, God, the Almighty in response to His commands to assemble there for worship.
What message do you get as you read, study and pray them? They are as applicable to us today as we enter into worship as they were to those pilgrims going up to the Temple of the LORD to Worship.
