PSALM 134 - Journey's End 15 Mar 2020
The pilgrim's target is reached. I shall bless Yahweh by day and by night, and receive Yahweh's blessing after that. My blessing comes from Zion, where Yahweh resides.
God without Name and Location
I am aware that using the name "Yahweh" is not done because of respect for his holiness. Thus my God has no name, except "the Lord." He resides in "Zion", a place of blessing.
I should seek to know the place of the blessing of my God. If my God says: "go there", like Abraham I should go. If I do not know the name, voice and residence of my God, perhaps I am lost in my own world.
1 [Song of Ascents]
Come, bless Yahweh,
all you who serve Yahweh,
serving in the house of Yahweh,
in the courts of the house of our God.
Through the night watches
2 stretch out your hands towards the sanctuary
and bless Yahweh.
3 May Yahweh bless you from Zion,
he who made heaven and earth!
