Episode: “Psalms 124 & 125”
Even though Israel’s opponents have been many and fearsome, the Lord has sustained Israel these many centuries. King David saw divine protection and likened it to the mountains that surround Jerusalem.
Series: “Psalms of Ascent (2018)”
In this eight-part television series, Jeff and Sandra examine Psalms 120 to 134, which are known as the “Psalms of Ascent.” While these psalms may have been sung by ancient Jews going up to the Temple in Jerusalem, they are surprisingly appropriate and timely for Believers today. Eitan Shishkoff from Haifa and the music of Marty Goetz are also featured.

Caption transcript for Psalms of Ascent (2018): “Psalms 124 & 125” (3/8)

  • 00:05 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved,
  • 00:12 for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek,
  • 00:14 for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.
  • 00:39 Thank you for joining us today on Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:41 I'm David Hart.
  • 00:42 And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:43 This is out Series "Psalms of Ascent",
  • 00:46 Psalms 120 - 134 in the Bible.
  • 00:48 They're Psalms or Songs that were sung
  • 00:51 as the Israelites made their way up to Jerusalem.
  • 00:54 Today, our teacher for this Series, Dr. Jeffrey Seif
  • 00:57 will be teaching on Psalm 124.
  • 01:00 Today we have a great re-enactment from Israel.
  • 01:03 We have Eitan Shishkoff up in Northern Israel.
  • 01:06 He will be bringing us a message.
  • 01:08 Chaim Malespin is our dear friend.
  • 01:09 We love hanging with him in Israel.
  • 01:11 He'll be with us today.
  • 01:13 And Sarah Liberman will be bringing us our Hebrew Lesson,
  • 01:16 which are the Names of God.
  • 01:17 And of course we love music.
  • 01:18 Marty Goetz will be bringing special music today.
  • 01:21 Right now let's go to Israel
  • 01:23 for the dramatic re-enactment.
  • 01:28 "If it had not been the Lord"
  • 01:30 "who was on our side when men rose up against us",
  • 01:33 "they would have swallowed us up quick"
  • 01:37 "when their wrath was kindled against us".
  • 01:39 "Blessed be the Lord who hath not given us prey to their teeth".
  • 01:45 "Our help is in the Name of the Lord who made heaven and earth".
  • 01:59 To be sure, war is unpleasant business.
  • 02:04 whether it's an ancient soldier
  • 02:06 donning a breastplate and a sword,
  • 02:09 or whether it's someone stepping into a modern tank, still if you can
  • 02:13 imagine what goes on in the minds of individuals that are thrown against
  • 02:18 the prospects of their own annihilation.
  • 02:22 it's unpleasant business as I'd said.
  • 02:24 The psalmist gives voice to the issues associated with bearing arms and if
  • 02:31 you'll look in Psalm Chapter 124 there's something that was
  • 02:35 a throw back to God's people in a bygone era
  • 02:40 because as you would know in bygone eras
  • 02:43 if you read the Bible, Israelites had to contend.
  • 02:46 If you read the newspaper today you'll learn that
  • 02:48 Israelites still have to contend.
  • 02:51 I'll get to the text in a second.
  • 02:52 Let me speak to the tank in a moment.
  • 02:55 This T55 was the backbone of the Arab armies, a number of them.
  • 03:00 The Egyptians, the Syrians,
  • 03:02 this was their main stay.
  • 03:04 It was Russian made,
  • 03:05 and this was confiscated in war.
  • 03:08 Well as I'd said, whether someone is in a tank, if you can imagine a soldier,
  • 03:14 you're an infantryman, and you're looking at
  • 03:17 something like this coming to you.
  • 03:19 What would you think?
  • 03:21 The reason why I said that is to set up the Psalm,
  • 03:23 because I want you to hear what he's thinking,
  • 03:26 but not just what's he's thinking, what he's feeling.
  • 03:28 Let me give it to you in Hebrew first,
  • 03:30 and then we will explore it in English.
  • 03:32 He says,
  • 03:32 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 03:41 And then he repeats by saying,
  • 03:46 And then the repetition.
  • 04:15 The psalmist elsewhere speaks of,
  • 04:17 "Our help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth".
  • 04:23 He says it in so many ways.
  • 04:24 In fact, in the last verse in Psalm 124 let me read verse 8,
  • 04:29 and then explore it with you first in my version.
  • 04:31 he says,
  • 04:32 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 04:45 As I'd said at the outset, war to be sure is unpleasant business.
  • 04:50 But it seems that from the very beginning
  • 04:53 men have been forced to don arms in defense of home and hearth.
  • 04:59 Here the psalmist finds himself at a place where he's compelled to do that.
  • 05:05 and you can hear how he falls back on confidence in God.
  • 05:10 The word "confidence" comes from the Latin word meaning "confides",
  • 05:15 and "con" means "with"
  • 05:16 and "fides" means "faith".
  • 05:18 To be sure it's important for people to have confidence
  • 05:23 whether it's a boy on a baseball team
  • 05:26 that has to have confidence,
  • 05:28 or whether it's a soldier in a tank,
  • 05:30 whether it's someone standing up in front a television camera,
  • 05:33 there needs to be a certain kind of confidence.
  • 05:35 We need to look at the tasks before us
  • 05:39 with a certain kind of confidence.
  • 05:42 Let me just say there are few things, to my way of thinking,
  • 05:44 that are worse than a man who's lost his confidence.
  • 05:50 That sense of being deflated is no good.
  • 05:53 While confidence is important,
  • 05:55 at issue in the text here
  • 05:57 isn't just a natural kind of human confidence.
  • 06:01 That is to say,
  • 06:04 the extent to which this writer has self-confidence, I don't know.
  • 06:07 That's between the writer and himself and God.
  • 06:10 But the text expresses him having confidence in God as a source.
  • 06:17 The reason why I say that is because he says that.
  • 06:19 He says, "If it had not had been the Lord"
  • 06:23 "who was on our side when men came against us"
  • 06:26 "we would have perished".
  • 06:28 "They would have swallowed us up alive".
  • 06:31 And he goes on to say,
  • 06:33 "We've escaped with God's help like a bird escapes from a snare."
  • 06:39 Who's to say what your circumstances have been in life.
  • 06:41 Only you know...I don't.
  • 06:44 I know as I've made my journey
  • 06:46 I've had difficulties and problems
  • 06:48 be it with unemployment,
  • 06:50 be it with health related issues,
  • 06:52 be it in litigation with people who really were bent against me.
  • 06:57 In different ways, different people
  • 06:59 experience different things.
  • 07:01 Like the psalmist, I can say,
  • 07:03 "If it had not had been the Lord who was on my side"
  • 07:07 "I would have perished".
  • 07:09 "Men would have swallowed me up alive."
  • 07:14 It's easy to think in terms of wars long ago in ancient Israel
  • 07:19 as I'm reading a text from ancient Israel, a warrior text.
  • 07:22 As I'm standing here in front of a tank
  • 07:25 that was captured in wars with modern Israel.
  • 07:28 But on a personal note this story needs to become personal,
  • 07:31 not just historical.
  • 07:33 I say that because you need to know that if you walk with God,
  • 07:38 and this is the purpose of the Psalm here by the way,
  • 07:40 that if you walk with God
  • 07:42 then He'll walk with you,
  • 07:44 and help you to overcome the challenges that beset you.
  • 07:49 It's good news from the Hebrew Bible.
  • 07:52 It's good news for you.

  • 08:13 Jewish roots of your Christian faith,

  • 08:32 The word "ministry" comes from the Latin word "minus" which means "less than"
  • 08:38 and it derives from Jesus saying,
  • 08:40 "He who is greatest among you must be the servant of all."
  • 08:44 I endeavor to be a servant to the text here,
  • 08:46 and I want you please, be a servant to the Gospel
  • 08:49 and help us get this story out.
  • 08:52 It's not cheap.
  • 08:55 Your gracious contributions are so appreciated,
  • 08:57 and make one now please
  • 08:59 to Zola Levitt Ministries.
  • 09:06 Thank you for standing with this ministry financially,
  • 09:09 as we stand with Israel
  • 09:11 and support many ministries in the Holy Land.
  • 09:13 Now we move on to Psalm 125
  • 09:16 as Dr. Jeffrey Seif teaches us that God
  • 09:20 will protect and be faithful to His people.
  • 09:25 "They that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Zion"
  • 09:29 "which cannot be removed but abideth forever."
  • 09:34 "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem"
  • 09:37 "so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even forever."
  • 09:43 "Do good O Lord unto those that be good"
  • 09:47 "and to them that are upright in their hearts."
  • 09:51 "Peace be upon Israel."
  • 09:57 Permanence, stability...
  • 10:02 That's what I think of when I think of mountains,
  • 10:05 immovable objects, fixed places in nature.
  • 10:11 I mention this because in the Scriptures
  • 10:14 mountains are likened to that which just simply cannot be moved.
  • 10:18 Jesus, you can recall, said once that
  • 10:20 if you had faith you could move mountains.
  • 10:22 Certainly it is a figure of speech to indicate
  • 10:25 by faith in God we can re-arrange circumstances that are immovable,
  • 10:30 can't be changed any other way.
  • 10:32 I mention this because in Psalm 125 here
  • 10:35 the psalmist likens God's protection to mountains round about Jerusalem.
  • 10:41 It speaks of God's abiding love, His care,
  • 10:44 His protection and so forth.
  • 10:46 what I want to do is explore this with you and unpack Psalm 125.
  • 10:51 First in my version,
  • 10:53 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 11:12 I'm coming to you from outside of Jerusalem,
  • 11:15 and you can see this view behind me,
  • 11:17 its just one of a number.
  • 11:19 Actually breathtaking,
  • 11:21 so very stimulating to see how Jerusalem,
  • 11:24 and you might recall in the Biblical text
  • 11:26 Jerusalem's nestled there in the mountains.
  • 11:28 David said "what a great place for a capital",
  • 11:30 guided as he was by the Holy Spirit
  • 11:32 in making that particular choice.
  • 11:35 the reason why I say that is because
  • 11:37 if you look at the City of Jerusalem itself,
  • 11:39 it's really rather interesting.
  • 11:41 Jerusalem certainly is a hill on a mountain there,
  • 11:46 the capital city where the Temple stood.
  • 11:48 But there's these valleys around it
  • 11:50 and it forms the letter " Shin " in Hebrew.
  • 11:53 The letter is for the name " Shem " which means "Name".
  • 12:00 " Ha Shem ", "The Name" is a principal Name of God in biblical literature.
  • 12:05 Hence even the Temple itself in the capital City of Jerusalem itself
  • 12:10 imposed into the topography is the word for "God" in Hebrew.
  • 12:15 Rather fascinating.
  • 12:18 In any case, here the psalmist likens God's protection, he says,
  • 12:22 "as the mountains are round about Jerusalem"
  • 12:25 "So the Lord is round about His people"
  • 12:28 to provide protection in affect.
  • 12:32 I wonder sometimes, have people actually read their Bibles?
  • 12:35 You have these replacement theologians that say that God is done with the Jews;
  • 12:40 he's taken away his protection.
  • 12:41 They envision that the Israelite presence here in this era
  • 12:46 is a fluke in history,
  • 12:47 has no place whatsoever because God has abandoned the Jews.
  • 12:51 That's not true.
  • 12:52 God says He never will abandon the Jews.
  • 12:53 They abandon the Jews.
  • 12:55 Jews may well have been abandoned in a few Christian pulpits
  • 12:59 but according to the sacred literature...
  • 13:01 no, God's steadfast love,
  • 13:04 His resolve is so amply noted.
  • 13:07 I only wish it would make its indelible mark on the cerebral cortex of people
  • 13:13 that claim to be biblical thinkers and religious story tellers.
  • 13:17 Their story is one of abandonment
  • 13:19 and throwing Jewish people under the bus.
  • 13:21 That's not what's indicated here,
  • 13:23 where God's love again is likened
  • 13:25 to a mountain range around Jerusalem.
  • 13:28 It speaks of protection, permanence, stability, love and affection.
  • 13:32 Okay, so much for that.
  • 13:33 I'll get off my soapbox now.
  • 13:34 He says in verse 4,
  • 13:36 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 13:46 It's not only that God is minded to do good and preserve Jerusalem,
  • 13:50 but then there's the petitioner here who is saying,
  • 13:53 "Lord, and how about me?"
  • 13:55 "Please Lord, be gracious unto me."
  • 13:59 "Please Lord, be gracious."
  • 14:00 And isn't that so much the cry of our hearts?
  • 14:04 You can find yourself in circumstances in life
  • 14:07 where you seem to be assailed by things that are beyond your control,
  • 14:11 and less then what you would hope for your own life,
  • 14:14 or for the lives of loved ones around you.
  • 14:17 And your heart's cry and your prayer can be,
  • 14:19 "Lord, please do good."
  • 14:21 "Lord, preserve."
  • 14:22 "Lord, help."
  • 14:24 If God ceases His promises to the Jewish people in
  • 14:27 the Bible, in the Old Testament,
  • 14:29 why would you think He would abide in His promises to you from the New Testament?
  • 14:32 I think we need to be consistent in our approach to the literature and
  • 14:35 aware of the fact that God is able to watch His people,
  • 14:40 and preserve His people, and attend to His promises,
  • 14:43 Dor l' Dor , "from generation to generation".
  • 14:46 and inasmuch as the psalmist gives voice
  • 14:48 to God's steadfast love to Israel,
  • 14:50 then the psalmist personalizes and says,
  • 14:52 "Lord, now about me", or "about we"
  • 14:54 "Lord, please help us."
  • 14:56 Then the psalmist closes,
  • 14:58 " Shalom al Israel ",
  • 15:00 "Peace be upon Yisrael".
  • 15:04 We close our programs with saying much the same,
  • 15:07 an exhortation in Psalms,
  • 15:08 to "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem."
  • 15:11 It seems that Israel's stability is important in the biblical text,
  • 15:17 that God has a people, He's given them a land.
  • 15:20 He brings the people to the land,
  • 15:22 and in the land people pray for God's preservation of them in that land.
  • 15:27 That's not only the case with people here in Israel,
  • 15:30 but you yourself,
  • 15:32 as you're working out your own relations with the Lord,
  • 15:34 you may well be at a place
  • 15:36 where you need to tarry at the altar and say, "Lord please help and preserve",
  • 15:40 whether it's a body,
  • 15:41 whether it's a circumstance,
  • 15:43 whether it's a situation,
  • 15:44 "Lord, preserve".
  • 15:45 "Lord help".
  • 15:46 "Please Lord, do good".
  • 15:48 "Let Your face shine upon me.",
  • 15:50 much as the sun is shining upon me here around Jerusalem,
  • 15:55 so it is you might ask for God's sunshine to shine upon you.
  • 15:58 I want you to know that though God's love is manifest in this place,
  • 16:03 it's displaced from this place.
  • 16:04 Those rays shine everywhere to all who call upon Him.
  • 16:07 So let me encourage you to be like the psalmist who says,
  • 16:10 "Do good O Lord to those who are good."
  • 16:14 Call upon the name of the Lord and you'll see that
  • 16:16 He is well pleased to give His blessings to you.
  • 16:25 There's a worship song that I love to sing
  • 16:27 that says, call upon the Name of the Lord,
  • 16:29 have faith in His Name.
  • 16:31 And we know that if we go through troubled times
  • 16:34 He is faithful to protect all of His children.
  • 16:36 That's a good word to take with you for the rest of the week.
  • 16:39 Now let's go to Chaim as he shares
  • 16:42 an example of how God takes care of His people.
  • 16:50 How do you know that God exists?
  • 16:52 The answer resoundingly is,
  • 16:54 Israel and the Jewish people.
  • 16:55 The fact that God is sustaining Israel,
  • 16:58 it's an amazing miracle.
  • 17:00 Here I am in Sajour.
  • 17:02 It's a village of Arab Israelis
  • 17:04 who are fellow citizens,
  • 17:05 right alongside me.
  • 17:06 But going back to 1948,
  • 17:08 the War of Independence,
  • 17:10 remember the Arab League, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria,
  • 17:13 Saudi Arabia, Yemen,
  • 17:15 there was the Arab Liberation Army,
  • 17:18 there was the Muslim Brotherhood,
  • 17:19 Pakistan, Sudan.
  • 17:21 I know Lebanon played a part as well in coming against Israel.
  • 17:25 But you know what?
  • 17:27 God helped a bunch of Holocaust Survivors
  • 17:29 to survive with just a mere militia,
  • 17:35 to be able to then come together
  • 17:37 and see God's protection.
  • 17:39 I'm happy to say that God is still protecting His Land,
  • 17:42 He's still watching over His Land,
  • 17:44 and Peace is reigning,
  • 17:47 but will reign far greater
  • 17:48 when the Messiah reigns here.
  • 17:57 The Lord is a promise keeper,
  • 17:59 and His love endures from this time forth and forever.
  • 18:03 Amen
  • 18:04 That is good news from this Book right here.
  • 18:06 That is.
  • 18:06 That's the Bible right there.
  • 18:07 It is.
  • 18:09 When we return we will have
  • 18:10 another Hebrew Lesson and
  • 18:11 so much more in this program.

  • 20:12 It's time right now for our weekly Hebrew Lesson.
  • 20:15 Are you ready?
  • 20:16 Here's Sarah Liberman.
  • 20:22 Shalom Havarim !
  • 20:24 We're here in the City of Jerusalem
  • 20:26 talking about the Names of God.
  • 20:29 One of the most powerful Names of God is El Khi
  • 20:33 and it literally means "God is alive"
  • 20:36 or, "The Living God"
  • 20:37 El means "God" and Khi means "Life", or "Alive".
  • 20:42 So when we pray,
  • 20:43 we can pray to the Living God.
  • 20:46 Now David in Psalm 84 says,
  • 20:48 "My soul thirsts, it yearns for You, the Living God."
  • 20:53 "And I find You in this dry and parched Land."
  • 20:56 This is the God that we serve,
  • 20:58 El Khi , a God Who's life is in us,
  • 21:03 Who's life is all around us in all of creation.
  • 21:06 So as we worship and we adore Him,
  • 21:08 as we pray we can say Adonai El Khi .
  • 21:15 Thank you so much Sarah.
  • 21:15 I love this word,
  • 21:17 and I think this word might be one of your favorites.
  • 21:19 It's one of my favorite Hebrew words,
  • 21:21 "Khi" which means "Life",
  • 21:23 but God's Names,
  • 21:25 so one of the Hebrew Names for God.
  • 21:27 Adonai is God.
  • 21:28 So should we say it together?
  • 21:30 Adonai El Khi
  • 21:31 God is a "Living God".
  • 21:33 Amen!
  • 21:34 That's a good Name.
  • 21:35 Now let's go to Haifa
  • 21:36 to hear some valuable insight
  • 21:37 from Eitan Shishkoff
  • 21:43 Shalom , I'm Eitan Shishkoff with "Tents of Mercy" in Israel,
  • 21:48 actually right near the Haifa Bay
  • 21:50 in a town called Kiryat Yam
  • 21:52 where we're located at the moment.
  • 21:54 And I'd like to talk to you about the phenomenon
  • 21:57 of the return of the Jewish people to Israel
  • 22:01 and of the restoration of faith in Jesus,
  • 22:05 faith in Yeshua as a Jewish phenomenon.
  • 22:08 In the book of Jeremiah, Chapter 30,
  • 22:11 we see that God promises,
  • 22:13 and this is following many verses that
  • 22:16 discuss the return of the exiles to the Land of Israel.
  • 22:21 God promises that He will establish,
  • 22:23 He will cut a New Covenant with Israel.
  • 22:27 this is an incredible promise because the language is very clear.
  • 22:30 It is actually relating to the New Testament,
  • 22:33 New Covenant, the " b'rit hadasha " in Hebrew.
  • 22:36 and he says this is what it's going to consist of,
  • 22:47 The intimacy of this promise really captures me
  • 22:50 and what I see is that God is calling those who follow Jesus
  • 22:55 to continue to celebrate their Jewish life and heritage.
  • 22:59 This is what happened to myself and to my wife.
  • 23:02 We've been raising our family now for some thirty years in that process,
  • 23:06 and the congregations that God allowed us to plant in Israel
  • 23:09 follow in that pattern as well.
  • 23:11 In fact, every Shabbat we read from the Torah scroll
  • 23:16 just as is done in synagogues around the world.
  • 23:19 And this is part of our statement,
  • 23:22 part of our life witness and testimony to our own people.
  • 23:26 We have not become traitors,
  • 23:28 we have not converted to another religion,
  • 23:30 and that the origins of faith in Yeshua
  • 23:33 are indeed right here in Israel.
  • 23:35 This is a phenomenon that has not existed for some 18th and 19th centuries.
  • 23:40 and so it's something that I believe should excite every one of us
  • 23:45 no matter what our background,
  • 23:46 or no matter where we're living in the world,
  • 23:48 that God keeps His Word,
  • 23:50 and that sometimes it takes a few centuries for it to happen.
  • 23:53 But the Lord does not forget and He is re-establishing
  • 23:58 a community of believers in Yeshua
  • 24:00 just as it was with the apostles in the 1st century
  • 24:03 right here in Israel in our times.
