Gilbert House Fellowship #356: Psalms 124–125, 128–130; 2 Samuel 1

GOD IS our protector through the trials of life. That comes through in the psalms we read this week, all part of the group titled Songs of Ascents.

These come from the period of David’s life between the death of Saul and his acceptance as king over all Israel. They are a reminder that while we will endure trials in this life, God offers us His steadfast love, forgiveness, and redemption.

  1. Could Psalm 124 also refer to the Red Sea Flood?

    Also, the book of Jasher is included in my Cepher Bible.

    1. Author

      Yes, in a literal sense. Good catch! We were thinking more of David and his circumstances.

      The version of Jasher is in the Cepher Bible is probably the midrash from the 16th century. It is not the book mentioned in the Old Testament, which has been lost.
