by

In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 122:1-9, the psalm opens saying, א שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת לְדָוִד שָֹמַחְתִּי בְּאֹמְרִים לִי בֵּית יְהֹוָה נֵלֵךְ: A song of ascents. Of David. 122:1 I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’ (NASB) David speaks of the joy of going to the house of the Lord. Why is the house of God joyful? He continues saying, א שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת לְדָוִד שָֹמַחְתִּי בְּאֹמְרִים לִי בֵּית יְהֹוָה נֵלֵךְ: ב עֹמְדוֹת הָיוּ רַגְלֵינוּ בִּשְׁעָרַיִךְ יְרוּשָׁלָם: ג יְרוּשָׁלַם הַבְּנוּיָה כְּעִיר שֶׁחֻבְּרָה-לָּהּ יַחְדָּו: ד שֶׁשָּׁם עָלוּ שְׁבָטִים שִׁבְטֵי-יָהּ עֵדוּת לְיִשְֹרָאֵל לְהֹדוֹת לְשֵׁם יְהֹוָה: 122:2 Our feet are standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem, 122:3 Jerusalem, that is built As a city that is compact together; 122:4 To which the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord An ordinance for Israel To give thanks to the name of the Lord. (NASB) What is the significance of standing within the gates of Jerusalem? What is it about this holy city that is so attractive to all peoples?  Read more here: Tehillim 122-Part1
