Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 134



Verses 1-3

CXXXIV. Exhortation to the Nightly Service of Yahweh.

Psalms 134:1 f. may be addressed by a band of pilgrims to Levites who were about to begin their nocturnal service. To them in response comes the priestly blessing of Psalms 134:3.

Psalms 134:2. Primitive men worshipped towards the place where their God dwelt. We have a survival of this custom here in the exhortation to lift up the hands to the Sanctuary.

Psalms 134:3. read, "bless you."
