This wonderful and ignored psalm is a dramatic tracing of the victory march of the Lord from Sinai to Zion in the events of Israel’s history. It may have been written for the moving of the ark to Jerusalem; and so we look at liturgical processions and dramatic re-living of great acts of the faith. The procession at the end of the psalm is filled with ideas. But central to the psalm is the typology, which finds its fulfillment in the ascension of Christ and the granting of (spiritual) gifts to his loyal subjects. Here, too, we bring out other ideas for development of truly glorious worship.
Sixth in a series of six lectures in which Dr. Ross addresses music, singing, liturgy, and worship as illustrated and revealed in the Psalms. Building on the foundation of a particular Psalm, further insight is gained from other passages in both the Old and New Testaments, culminating in the derivation of principles for practice in worship today.
