Day 185 of the podcast, reading Psalms 120-131 NET, read along at:
This is day 185 of our journey.
Today we read 12 Psalms of ascent. These psalms were written to be sung by the people of Israel as they were ascending the hills into Jerusalem. They glory in the majesty of the city, but recognize that their help comes from the Lord and not from man-made walls or human strength. These psalms speak to the deliverance of the Lord in times of trouble and hardship. They recognize that only God can make a plan succeed. They praise God for his forgiveness of sins.
Join me in Psalms 120-131 and place your hope in the Lord!

Our deliverer is the Lord, the Creator of heaven and earth.
A song of ascents. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved and will endure forever.

A song of ascents, by Solomon. If the Lord does not build a house, then those who build it work in vain.If the Lord does not guard a city, then the watchman stands guard in vain.
A song of ascents. How blessed is every one of the Lord’s loyal followers, each one who keeps his commands!
“Since my youth they have often attacked me, but they have not defeated me.

O Israel, hope in the Lord now and forevermore!
