Song of Ascent: Fifteenth Step

At the Western Wall, upon which The Temple once stood, people gather to listen to a man’s prayers.
by Wil Robinson. 1987

Song of Ascent. Psalm 130

1 Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, who stand by night in the house of the LORD!

2 Lift up your hands to the holy place and bless the LORD!

3 May the LORD bless you from Zion, he who made heaven and earth!

The final step, what a wonderful and joyous call! It’s an invitation. The call is for me. The call is for you. Are we not grateful we are called? Jew and Gentile alike. A call by our Heavenly Father made possible by His Son, our Savior, Yeshua Jesus! Blessed be His Name forever!

The pilgrim bands arriving at the sanctuary call on the priests, who stand in the house of the Lord—at the time of the evening sacrifice, to unite in praising God in their name and that of the people, using appropriate gestures, to which the priests reply, pronouncing the Mosaic blessing which they alone could pronounce. A fit epilogue to the whole pilgrim-book, Psalms 120-134. —Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary
