Songs of Ascent IV – The Lord is Merciful (Psalm 123)

blog-week-4-copyThe Songs of Ascent are a collection of Psalms (running from Psalm 120 through to Psalm 135) which pilgrims sang as they travelled towards Jerusalem and up to the temple. In Psalm 123, the Psalmist laments with the people of God as they experience the scorn and contempt of those around them and calls on the mercy of God.

In the fourth of a fifteen part series, Phill Marsh examines the Psalmist’s call for mercy and its rooting in his deep understanding of the character and position of God and his own place before the Almighty.
