Psalms 120 – 124

The title “song of ascents” identifies each of Psalms 120-134 as a pilgrim song to be sung when the Israelites “ascended” to Jerusalem for the annual feasts. He is praying for-deliverance from traitors who wanted war while he was for peace.

The assurance was then given that the LORD would protect the pilgrim at all times. The Keeper of Israel was the pilgrim’s Keeper as well; protecting him as a shade protects one from the blazing sun. The sun and the moon stand for dangers that occur in the day and in the night.
