Ps 121

Ps. 121 The first verse suggests why this psalm was included among the “Songs of Ascents” (Ps. 120 note). The psalmist’s vision is set firmly on the final goal, Jerusalem, and Zion, the hill of God. The pronoun shift from “I” to “you” could represent an internal dialogue (similar to Ps. 42; 43 or Ps. 103), or more likely the words of the pilgrim who begins the psalm followed by the assurance spoken by a priest or other person.
