Psalms 121-125: Postcards from the edge

Thank goodness these ones are all short after Friday's epic prayer.

Psalm 121

Over hill, over dale who's that coming down the trail to help our faithful psalmist? Why god, of course, who never sleeps and provides shade from the sun. So no need for sunscreen then, right?

Psalm 122

This one is written like a tourist postcard from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. I'm sure hundreds of them are still sent using almost the exact same words.

Psalm 123

Blah blah blah mercycakes.

Psalm 124

Thank goodness god was there all those times enemies attacked!

Psalm 125

Another prayer for peace and security that nonetheless ends by asking god to smite hostile tribes.
