Episode: “Psalms 126 & 127”
Out of captivity and sorrow, the Lord brings joy through deliverance. The Israelites have returned to the Promised Land. From the Southern Wall of the Temple Mount, Jeff reminds us that human efforts to build are in vain without the Lord’s protection.
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 126 & 127” (4/8)

  • 00:05 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved,
  • 00:11 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 Welcome to Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:41 I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:42 And I'm David Hart.
  • 00:43 Welcome to our Series "Psalms of Ascent" with
  • 00:45 our wonderful teacher, Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 00:48 He has been teaching from Psalm 120 to 134.
  • 00:52 Those are called the "Psalms of Ascent"
  • 00:54 which are Psalms or Songs probably sung,
  • 00:57 maybe spoken, by the Israelites as they
  • 01:00 made their way, literally,up
  • 01:02 to Jerusalem to the Temple.
  • 01:04 We have our friends Chaim Malespin, Eitan Shishkoff,
  • 01:07 our Hebrew Lesson with Sarah Liberman,
  • 01:10 and great, great music today by Marty Goetz.
  • 01:12 Dr. Seif will be starting today with Psalm 126
  • 01:16 which was written concerning Ezra and Nehemiah as they were
  • 01:21 bringing the Israelites back from captivity from Babylon
  • 01:25 to rebuild the Temple.
  • 01:27 So what could go wrong?
  • 01:28 Let's go to our dramatic re-enactment and find out.
  • 01:34 "When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion"
  • 01:37 "we were like them that dream."
  • 01:40 "Then was our mouth filled with laughter,"
  • 01:42 "and our tongue with singing"
  • 01:45 "The Lord hath done great things for us,"
  • 01:47 "whereof we are glad."
  • 01:50 "Turn again our captivity Oh Lord"
  • 01:52 "as the streams in the South."
  • 01:55 "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy."
  • 01:58 "He that goeth forth and weepeth bearing precious seed"
  • 02:02 "shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,"
  • 02:05 "bringing his sheaves with him."
  • 02:10 It's so great to see Israel coming back to life.
  • 02:13 Here at a site not far from Jerusalem,
  • 02:15 that was built up in the 4th Century,
  • 02:17 destroyed by the Persians,
  • 02:19 and now once again Israelis are coming here.
  • 02:22 In this case, behind me a field trip of young Israeli School Children
  • 02:26 making their way, learning, studying,
  • 02:29 and walking the ancients roads.
  • 02:32 Oh how excited they were when they first heard the Decree in Ezra,
  • 02:37 that those in Exile could make their way back to the Ancestral Homeland.
  • 02:42 Giving voice to that, the psalmist in Chapter 126, says
  • 02:45 [Speaking Hebrew first]
  • 03:07 That's what they're saying back here.
  • 03:09 In fact, that what they're saying it all over Israel.
  • 03:12 Here, the psalmist gives voice to the joy
  • 03:15 that attends the return from the exile,
  • 03:18 but then there's a shift,
  • 03:21 an interesting shift, in fact.
  • 03:22 He says in verse 4,
  • 03:25 [Speaking Hebrew First]
  • 03:37 And expositors have wondered in this Psalm of Ascent
  • 03:40 why it begins with the ecstasy of returning from exile,
  • 03:46 and then begging in the middle of it,
  • 03:48 "Lord, please return us from exile."
  • 03:52 What seems like an inconsistency
  • 03:54 can be readily understood when we look at the text
  • 03:57 in the context within which it was first voiced,
  • 04:00 and that is,
  • 04:02 Israelites made their way back from Persia once upon a time,
  • 04:06 at the Decree of Ezra in the days of Nehemiah.
  • 04:10 They came back and rebuilt.
  • 04:11 They were so thrilled to have the opportunity to come,
  • 04:15 buy when they came, they experienced difficulties.
  • 04:20 They learned there was problems in the land.
  • 04:22 They learned there were problem people bent on
  • 04:24 prohibiting them from moving forward
  • 04:27 and rebuilding the ancestral Homeland.
  • 04:30 Those problems that existed back then exist today,
  • 04:33 and these pilgrims behind me face it,
  • 04:36 and if you watch the news you know it.
  • 04:38 And so on the one hand here the psalmist says,
  • 04:41 "Oh we were so happy when we learned we can come back."
  • 04:44 But then, there's the stark reality of those who returned.
  • 04:48 The ecstasy turns to agony when individuals are minded to consider
  • 04:53 the problems associated with endeavoring to rebuild.
  • 04:57 What's the recipe for people like me and you
  • 05:01 when we find ourselves in that intermediate place?
  • 05:05 Some place between the problems of life and the expected fulfillment of joy
  • 05:10 we find ourselves just in a hard way, rather depressed.
  • 05:14 What ought we to do?
  • 05:16 Well, the psalmist says what we ought to do is
  • 05:18 we should go forth weeping bearing the seed for sowing,
  • 05:21 knowing we will have success at the end of the day,
  • 05:25 and that we'll bring in the sheaves.
  • 05:27 There's an encouragement here to persevere.
  • 05:30 Goodness, we're living in the miracle of modern Israel today.
  • 05:34 Individuals came back but you know what?
  • 05:37 Israelites need to persevere.
  • 05:40 And it can be for you as well in your own circumstances in life
  • 05:44 that you've experienced a deliverance from your own bondage,
  • 05:48 and now you're looking to find your way to
  • 05:50 your own Promised Land that God has for you,
  • 05:53 and it might be a little slow in coming or you may have entered that Land,
  • 05:57 but goodness, it seems so hard to inhabit it and develop it.
  • 06:02 What's the Word for you?
  • 06:03 The Word for you is the Word to them,
  • 06:05 and that is, to persevere, to endure.
  • 06:08 And why is that?
  • 06:09 Because at the end of the day there's a good God,
  • 06:12 and he stands poised and ready to enable
  • 06:15 His people to experience the triumph that is their's in human history.
  • 06:21 "Oh, wait on the Lord", the psalmist says elsewhere.
  • 06:24 That same psalmist who said,
  • 06:25 "My help will come from the Lord who made heaven and earth."

  • 07:10 The word "ministry" comes from the Latin word "minus"
  • 07:14 which means "less than",
  • 07:16 and it derives from Jesus saying,
  • 07:18 "He who is greatest among you must be the servant of all.
  • 07:21 I endeavor to be a servant to the text here,
  • 07:24 and I want you please be a servant to the Gospel
  • 07:27 and help us get this story out.
  • 07:30 It's not cheap.
  • 07:32 Your gracious contributions are so appreciated,
  • 07:35 and make one now, please
  • 07:37 to Zola Levitt Ministries.
  • 07:47 Because of your giving
  • 07:49 we are able to bring you
  • 07:50 wonderful teaching,
  • 07:51 dramatic re-enactments,
  • 07:53 and also reports from Israel.
  • 07:55 We just want to thank you so much
  • 07:56 for your continued support.
  • 07:58 Right now, open your Bibles,
  • 07:59 and let's go to Psalm 127
  • 08:01 where Dr. Jeffrey Seif will be teaching on location in Israel.
  • 08:07 In the first century the laborers were very
  • 08:10 much at the mercy of their limitations.
  • 08:13 Pulleys that often didn't work,
  • 08:16 saws that didn't cut.
  • 08:19 Sometimes, due to the lack of planning and teamwork,
  • 08:22 the laborers themselves were the biggest obstacle.
  • 08:26 Without dedication to sound principles and a just cause,
  • 08:31 the building was doomed.
  • 08:33 In the words of the psalmist,
  • 08:36 "Accept the Lord build the house,"
  • 08:39 "they labor in vain that build it."
  • 08:44 Building can be very frustrating.
  • 08:48 Sometimes it's because the builders don't build it right.
  • 08:53 Other times it's because the pieces don't come in place correctly.
  • 08:57 There's a lot to coordinate.
  • 09:00 That's in part why the psalmist said,
  • 09:08 Speaking of houses and speaking of buildings,
  • 09:10 you're looking here at an apparatus that was used to build a house.
  • 09:17 A house where?
  • 09:18 Here in Jerusalem,
  • 09:20 coming from the very southern part of the Temple complex,
  • 09:24 and it was here where stones like this
  • 09:27 were moved about on wheels like this,
  • 09:29 and they were hoisted in place then.
  • 09:31 You can see behind me an apparatus.
  • 09:33 There's levers, pulleys,
  • 09:36 there's means to move these stones around
  • 09:39 and get them in place.
  • 09:41 Get them in place, why?
  • 09:42 Because there was a big project here.
  • 09:45 Back in Bible days Schlomo , Solomon that is,
  • 09:48 was vested with responsibility to build the "House of the Lord".
  • 09:53 And to be sure, he used instruments like the ones you're seeing right now.
  • 09:58 I'd like you to open up your Bibles please
  • 10:00 to Psalms Chapter 127.
  • 10:03 Of all the Psalms of Ascent, this is one that's dedicated.
  • 10:06 It says, Shir Hama'aloth , the "Song of Ascents"
  • 10:10 li' Schlomo , "of Solomon."
  • 10:13 Interestingly, it's not that he wrote it,
  • 10:15 but it's attributed to the project that he was engaged in.
  • 10:19 And what was the project?
  • 10:20 Building God's house.
  • 10:23 And it's here where we read,
  • 10:24 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 10:50 In both cases here, both parts of verse 1,
  • 10:52 it speaks of beit , "house" and ir , "city",
  • 10:55 and it's "a house",
  • 10:56 and it's "a city".
  • 10:58 The Hebrew doesn't say "the" house and "the" city,
  • 11:01 but even this English rendering from the
  • 11:03 Jewish publication society that I'm employing it says
  • 11:06 "the" house and "the" city, to help readers along,
  • 11:10 to understand by implication first it means Jerusalem itself.
  • 11:15 The idea is, of course,
  • 11:17 the Lord watches over the city and the house that He builds here.
  • 11:21 But it doesn't just apply to that,
  • 11:24 though certainly that's the initial context,
  • 11:26 for it could mean the Lord watching over any house and any city,
  • 11:31 and it's in that sense the text that harks initially to this regal city
  • 11:35 speaks to the less than regal homes that people like you and me build.
  • 11:40 That's why the psalmist shifts and talked about family life then,
  • 11:44 not just about Temple life.
  • 11:46 He says in verse 3,
  • 11:49 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 12:02 Well, it begs the question, and it really is worth asking rhetorically.
  • 12:07 How can we get God's blessing on our house?
  • 12:10 And I don't just mean sticks and bricks,
  • 12:13 though you certainly want God's blessings on a safe and secure dwelling.
  • 12:16 But how can we get blessings on our household, our children?
  • 12:20 We're told here that unless the Lord watches over it,
  • 12:24 that it's in vain for us to do so.
  • 12:26 Well what contributes towards His blessings on our affairs?
  • 12:30 Three things that I'd like to underscore
  • 12:32 that are derived from the Psalm.
  • 12:35 The Bible says if we seek Him we find Him,
  • 12:38 and we do well to pray for our progeny, for our children.
  • 12:43 This Song in affect is a singing prayer.
  • 12:49 That there's value in people getting away from just privatized religion,
  • 12:54 and to be sure, we do well to go into our private closets and pray,
  • 12:58 but not just do that individually, but collectively.
  • 13:01 Jerusalem is established, and the Temple was established
  • 13:04 as a place where people come and worship corporately.
  • 13:12 has a way of getting God's mind and His heart into people
  • 13:16 which secures God's blessings.
  • 13:18 I say that because right now what I'm doing,
  • 13:20 though I'm standing here in Jerusalem,
  • 13:22 and though you're seeing wonderful things behind me
  • 13:25 that hark to the Bible days,
  • 13:27 we can open up the text and get the biblical story.
  • 13:30 Even if we don't get it from here,
  • 13:32 there's a sense in which when we open up the Bible
  • 13:34 we're transported back into God's world,
  • 13:37 where we can hear His Word and learn of His ways,
  • 13:40 and that contributes toward our success in life and His blessings.
  • 13:44 So three things in response to the question,
  • 13:48 mindful that "unless the Lord builds the house,"
  • 13:50 "they labor in vain who build it."
  • 13:52 the question is, How can we secure God's blessings in our own affairs?
  • 14:07 Those three combine in different ways to get
  • 14:10 biblical value and virtue in our mind and in our heart,
  • 14:13 and that invariably contributes
  • 14:16 toward giving God a place where He can direct us.
  • 14:19 Well, the Psalms are a good place to go,
  • 14:22 and here we are in the Psalm of Ascents,
  • 14:24 working our way through it, and I trust you're blessed,
  • 14:26 by virtue of your fresh engagement
  • 14:28 with the text that begins with,
  • 14:30 "unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.
  • 14:38 Thank you Dr. Seif
  • 14:39 We love his teaching today,
  • 14:40 and I love the Scripture that says,
  • 14:42 unless the Lord builds the house,
  • 14:44 "we", they labor in vain.
  • 14:46 And that's what we've believed in our marriage,
  • 14:48 We're going on 28 years babe,
  • 14:50 that only the Lord can build our relationship,
  • 14:54 our family, and our home.
  • 14:56 That's a good foundation.
  • 14:57 That's really the only way that our family
  • 14:59 and our marriage can survive.
  • 15:01 Chaim Malespin has a great word for us today.
  • 15:04 Let's go to Israel to hear from him.
  • 15:12 Hey guys!
  • 15:13 Here I am at a Hebrew carwash.
  • 15:15 It's Chaim, the Galilean here.
  • 15:16 Whhhooo!
  • 15:22 Zion said, "The Lord has forsaken me."
  • 15:24 "My Lord has forgotten me."
  • 15:26 "But can a woman forget her child that she nurses,"
  • 15:29 that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?
  • 15:31 Yeah!
  • 15:33 You know, "They may forget, yet I will not forget you Israel."
  • 15:37 This is God talking to Israel.
  • 15:39 "Behold I have engraven you upon the palms on my hands,"
  • 15:43 "your walls are continually before me."
  • 15:45 You know, so many times I think that Israelis,
  • 15:48 they feel that God has forsaken them.
  • 15:50 They say, "Why is it we have to go thru so much?"
  • 15:53 "Thru trials, tribulations, wars?"
  • 15:57 Let me tell you what,
  • 15:58 God has not forsaken His people.
  • 16:00 And I want to say this,
  • 16:01 It even says, if you go down to Isaiah 49 verse 23,
  • 16:05 It says, "Kings and Queens..."
  • 16:07 Well, it says "Kings will be your nursing fathers,"
  • 16:09 "queens will be your nursing mothers."
  • 16:11 And I thought about this.
  • 16:12 And I thought, that is a strange prophecy.
  • 16:14 But it's not so strange.
  • 16:16 It just means that nations who used to maybe hate Israel,
  • 16:19 now will treat Israel like their own child,
  • 16:23 and sustain Israel like their own child of their own womb.
  • 16:28 God bless YOU
  • 16:31 for standing with God's purposes here.
  • 16:39 Thank you Chaim for the reminder
  • 16:41 that we need to continue to pray
  • 16:42 for our brothers and sisters who
  • 16:44 are back in the Holy Land.
  • 16:46 Coming up we'll learn Hebrew,
  • 16:48 Get insight from Eitan Shishkoff,
  • 16:50 and hear some wonderful music
  • 16:52 by our friend Marty Goetz.

  • 18:23 Right now let's go to Jerusalem
  • 18:25 for our Hebrew Lesson with Sarah Liberman.
  • 18:33 Shalom Havarem !
  • 18:35 We're here in the City of Jerusalem
  • 18:37 talking about the Names of God.
  • 18:39 One of the most beautiful Names
  • 18:42 is Adonai Yee-rah-eh
  • 18:44 "which means, The Lord Will Provide"
  • 18:47 It actually comes from
  • 18:48 the root word Ra'ah
  • 18:50 which means "God Will See"
  • 18:53 So as Abraham was coming up to Mount Moriah,
  • 18:56 which is right here behind me,
  • 18:58 and He says to Isaac, "God will provide",
  • 19:01 when Isaac says, "Father, where is the sacrifice for the altar?"
  • 19:06 What Abraham was saying to his son,
  • 19:08 is "God sees our need and God will provide."
  • 19:12 Adonai Yee-rah-eh
  • 19:14 In my own life as a Worship Leader,
  • 19:16 I have many times cried out to the Lord,
  • 19:20 "God, I need to see your provision."
  • 19:22 "I thirst and hunger for you."
  • 19:25 "And I'm comforted that I can worship this God,"
  • 19:28 "who always sees,"
  • 19:30 "and who always provides for"
  • 19:32 "everything that we need."
  • 19:34 So this week, as we worship and pray,
  • 19:37 we will say, Adonai Yee-rah-eh
  • 19:41 Thank you so much Sarah.
  • 19:42 What a great promise
  • 19:43 for all of us watching today.
  • 19:45 Adonai - "God"
  • 19:47 Yee-rah-eh
  • 19:48 Let's say it together.
  • 19:49 Adonai Yee-rah-eh
  • 19:51 Which means, He sees us,
  • 19:52 He sees our needs,
  • 19:54 and He provides for us.
  • 19:55 That's right.
  • 19:56 That is a good Word.
  • 19:57 I'm excited to hear what Eitan Shishkoff has to say,
  • 19:59 what kind of wisdom he will give us from Haifa, in Israel.
  • 20:03 Here's Eitan.
  • 20:09 Shalom , I'm Eitan Shishkoff
  • 20:10 and we're standing in the industrial zone
  • 20:12 of a Haifa Bay area city where our congregation
  • 20:16 found a home some 15 years ago.
  • 20:19 We had been a collection of small Bible studies,
  • 20:22 and were praying, looking around,
  • 20:24 and this is the area to which we were led.
  • 20:26 We didn't even know it existed.
  • 20:28 We found one of the warehouses
  • 20:29 that's behind me on this side,
  • 20:31 and rented it.
  • 20:32 Two years after that, as the congregation
  • 20:34 was growing and gathering some momentum,
  • 20:36 one evening I was surprised to receive a phone call that said,
  • 20:39 "The warehouse is on fire."
  • 20:41 I rushed down here.
  • 20:42 I don't live too far away.
  • 20:44 And sure enough, there were flames leaping out of the roof.
  • 20:48 We had the help of the fire department to put out the fire,
  • 20:51 but before it could be put out,
  • 20:53 equipment was melted,
  • 20:55 our entire office was destroyed.
  • 20:57 The humanitarian aide that we were beginning to distribute,
  • 20:59 had been really all smoke damaged.
  • 21:03 But what we found was what's said in the Scriptures
  • 21:07 about Joseph and his brothers that
  • 21:10 what one portion of the community meant for evil,
  • 21:13 God meant for good.
  • 21:15 And really, these were our brothers.
  • 21:16 We do not hold it against them.
  • 21:18 We understand that it's a very controversial reality to be in Israel,
  • 21:22 to be renewing faith in Yeshua,
  • 21:24 to come right out and say,
  • 21:26 "This is a Jewish thing to do,"
  • 21:28 "a Jewish thing to believe."
  • 21:29 And out of that persecution and that fire bombing
  • 21:32 that took place in 1997,
  • 21:35 the building that's back in the background of this side of me,
  • 21:38 several stories as you see, opened up,
  • 21:40 it was just being constructed at that time.
  • 21:43 Since then through the gifts of God's people,
  • 21:47 we've been able to purchase that building.
  • 21:49 We've now been in it for well over 10 years.
  • 21:52 What we've seen is just a wonderful growth,
  • 21:56 and as time's gone on,
  • 21:58 we've made good relationships
  • 22:00 with our neighbors here in this area,
  • 22:02 and we feel that this is a special opportunity.
  • 22:05 I also remember that when the disciples,
  • 22:09 the original Jewish believers in Yeshua in the first century,
  • 22:13 were persecuted for their faith,
  • 22:15 and heavily persecuted,
  • 22:17 thrown into jail.
  • 22:18 Some of them became martyrs.
  • 22:19 We're no where near that level of persecution at this time.
  • 22:23 But they thanked the Lord and said,
  • 22:25 "Thank you for counting us worthy to suffer for Your Name."
  • 22:29 We feel that it is a privilege.
  • 22:30 We're not in antagonistic relationship.
  • 22:33 I'm an Israeli citizen.
  • 22:36 This is our country,
  • 22:37 and what we realize is that though there are
  • 22:40 pockets of persecution around Israel,
  • 22:42 people in other cities, demonstrations taking place against Messianic Jews,
  • 22:46 the local people are actually coming to our defense and saying,
  • 22:49 "No, you are wrong."
  • 22:51 "These people are not trying to change and convert our people"
  • 22:55 "to another religion, another identity"
  • 22:57 "They're Israelis, and they're good Israelis."
  • 22:59 So, we're thankful to be here.
  • 23:02 We feel that we're part of
  • 23:03 a miraculous restoration
  • 23:05 that's taking place by the Spirit of God.
