Psalms 134:1


The Bible says in Psalm 134:1-3, “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.” In verses one and two we are told to bless the Lord. When we bless the Lord, we are recognizing who He is and the great things that He has done. Blessing the Lord is normal for believers. To bless and praise the Lord is one of the things that is done in a gathering of believers. That is why it says in verse two, “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.” When Christians gather together and they are rightly-related to Christ, it is even easier to bless the Lord because of the combined out-pouring of the Spirit in their midst. Verse three gives one of the reasons to “bless” the Lord: He “made heaven and earth.” The desire expressed in verse three is that the Lord would bless you. The power who made heaven and earth can certainly bless whoever He chooses to bless, and He chooses to bless those who believe in Jesus. The greatest blessing is to be forgiven of sins and to have a home reserved in heaven.
