As pilgrims made their way up the path to Jerusalem, they raised songs to the Lord in worship. Studying three of these Psalms of Ascents, Alistair Begg reveals to us what they meant to travelers then—and what they can teach us today. Even if others ridicule our beliefs, we, like the pilgrims, can focus on the living Lord’s mercy instead of on the scoffers along the way. We can trust in His protection and our eternal security with Him.
1To you I lift up my eyes,
O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
1If it had not been the Lord who was on our side—
let Israel now say—
1Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
