THE PILGRIMAGE BEGINS

Psalm 131 is contained in a selection of Psalms known as the Psalms of Ascent, or Pilgrimage Psalms. These songs were often sung by the people of Israel as they journeyed to Jerusalem to celebrate the Festivals of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. Psalm 131 is a part of a spiritual pilgrimage that moves us from our own self-reliance to our confident hope in Jesus.
