Ps 134

Ps. 134 This brief conclusion to the “Songs of Ascents” is composed of a call to worship (vv. 1, 2) followed by a blessing (v. 3). Many take the first two verses as an exhortation from the departing worshipers to the priests who tend the temple precincts at night. In response the priests bless the congregation. The psalm is a reminder that God’s praise is a continual, not momentary, activity (cf. 1 Thess. 5:16, 17).
