“The Peace of Praise” (Psa. 128)

HOST: Chris Clevenger



Show Notes:

  • Jews attended three feasts in Jerusalem every year: Passover (Spring), Pentecost (Early Summer), and Tabernacles (Autumn) (Exodus 23:14-19)
  • Traditionally they travelled in family or community groups to the city of David (Luke 2:41-52).
  • As they journey they sang the “Psalms of Ascent” (Psalm 120-134) to prepare for worship.
  • This psalm is closely related to Psalm 127. Psalm 127 shows ferverous work without God. Psalm 128 shows the quiet blessings of an ordered life.
  • The psalm is divided into three couplets. 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6. Each couplet shows the peace that praise and its attendant life brings in a different area of life.
  • Peace in the Heart (Psalm 128:1-2)
    • Reverence – “feareth the Lord”
    • Obedience – “walketh in his ways”
    • Hard Work – “labor of thine hands”
  • Peace in the Home (Psalm 128:3-4)
    • Wife – “a fruitful vine in thine house”
    • Children – “olive plants round about thy table”
  • Peace in the Host (Psalm 128:5-6)
    • The Patriot’s Joy
    • The Patriarch’s Peace
