Psalm 134: Now let us Praise and Worship Him
song of ascents.
Comments: This fifteenth and final very short psalm
of ascents, concludes the ascent with worship and praise.]
Worship at the end of the day is especially precious
the Lord , all you servants of the Lord
who minister by night in the house of
Come open-handed with mouths full of praise
up your hands in the sanctuary
and praise the Lord.
As you come like this, may our Creator bless you
the Lord bless you from Zion,
he who is the Maker of heaven and earth.
There is discussion about who the ‘servants' are in v.1.
They may be the priests on the evening shift, or they may just be
the pilgrims coming to the end of the day of their pilgrimage, coming
to serve, minister and just worship God. Lifting hands is a sign
of presenting open, empty hands for inspection by God, a sign of
coming with vulnerability and accountability as the heart worships
[v.2]. From this place, in the presence of the Lord, people of God
may expect to receive the blessing of God. Worship is a two way
activity. The believer offers themselves to God in humility and
in return He decrees goodness over them.]
