Psalms 134:1-2

Context
Psalm 134 1 

A song of ascents. 2 

134:1 Attention! 3  Praise the Lord,

all you servants of the Lord,

who serve 4  in the Lord’s temple during the night.

134:2 Lift your hands toward the sanctuary

and praise the Lord!

1 sn Psalm 134. The psalmist calls on the temple servants to praise God (vv. 1-2). They in turn pronounce a blessing on the psalmist (v. 3).

2 sn The precise significance of this title, which appears in Pss 120-134, is unclear. Perhaps worshipers recited these psalms when they ascended the road to Jerusalem to celebrate annual religious festivals. For a discussion of their background see L. C. Allen, Psalms 101-150 (WBC), 219-21.

3 tn Heb “Look!”

4 tn Heb “stand.”
