Liturgical blessing (Ps 134:1-134:2)

A song of ascents

“Come!

Bless Yahweh!

All you servants of Yahweh!

You stand by night

In the house of Yahweh!

Lift up your hands to the holy place!

Bless Yahweh!”

Psalm 134 is the last in this series of pilgrimage songs on the ascent to Jerusalem. This short psalm is a blessing. They were called to bless Yahweh. These were the servants of Yahweh, who stood in the house of Yahweh at night. They were to lift up their hands and bless Yahweh.
