Psalm 134 acts as a benediction within the "Songs of Ascents." In these three short verses, the psalmist addresses those who stand in the house of the Lord, encouraging them to lift their hands in worship. There is a reciprocal element to this psalm, with a call to bless the Lord and a responding blessing upon the people from Zion. This passage, though concise, carries a profound message about the importance of continual praise and the intimate connection between the worshiper and the Divine.

Psalm 134

1 (A Song of degrees.) Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD.

2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.

3 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
