Episode: “Psalms 128 & 129”
At the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Jeff considers the Psalms’ clear teaching that fear of the Lord and honoring His ways bring blessings to individuals and families. Israel as a nation has seen much affliction, but the Lord’s support is unwavering.
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 128 & 129” (5/8)

  • 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.
  • 00:38 Hi, I'm David Hart.
  • 00:39 Welcome to Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:41 And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:42 Welcome to our Series, "Psalms of Ascent",
  • 00:45 which are the psalms or songs that were sung
  • 00:48 as the Israelites went up to Jerusalem and to the Temple.
  • 00:52 Our Teacher for the whole Series is Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 00:55 He's here for the whole Series.
  • 00:58 I think he's so interesting.
  • 01:00 He keeps me captivated.
  • 01:02 Dr. Seif, we appreciate
  • 01:03 what you bring to this program.
  • 01:04 Today begins with Psalm 128
  • 01:06 which speaks of the blessings
  • 01:08 for those who fear the Lord.
  • 01:09 But first, let's go to Israel
  • 01:11 for a dramatic re-enactment.
  • 01:16 "Blessed is everyone that feareth the Lord,"
  • 01:18 that walketh in His Ways,"
  • 01:21 "for thou shalt eat the labor of thine hands,"
  • 01:24 "happy shalt thou be and it shall be well with thee."
  • 01:28 "Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house,"
  • 01:32 "thy children like olive plants round about thy table."
  • 01:37 "Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord."
  • 01:43 "Yeah, thou shalt see thy children's children,"
  • 01:46 "and peace upon Israel."
  • 01:53 "Focus on the Family" is a very famous ministry in North America,
  • 01:58 and I'd imagine the world over.
  • 02:00 One could wonder why there'd be a
  • 02:01 focus on the family psalm
  • 02:03 in what's called the Psalm of Ascents,
  • 02:05 a psalm recited by Israelites as they're
  • 02:07 making their way to and through Jerusalem,
  • 02:10 on the trip of a lifetime.
  • 02:13 One would expect, at one level, the Psalms of Ascents could be
  • 02:16 rife with nationalist fervor and feeling,
  • 02:21 and prayers for the Capital.
  • 02:24 It's interesting, Psalm 128 as a psalm of ascent,
  • 02:28 as it speaks of blessings from Jerusalem,
  • 02:31 still looks at the family.
  • 02:33 And the reason why this is correlated in my mind's eye
  • 02:36 is because in order for families
  • 02:39 to be secure and strong in a culture, in a country,
  • 02:42 there has to be a strong Capital.
  • 02:44 If this gets overrun, if Jerusalem is overrun,
  • 02:47 then so much for family life.
  • 02:49 Things are thrown into disarray and decay,
  • 02:52 to put it mildly.
  • 02:54 Truth be known, if the barbarians get the better in ancient Israel,
  • 02:57 people are taken, they're slaughtered,
  • 03:00 they're sold off into slave markets.
  • 03:01 So much for happy families.
  • 03:04 But here, when they made their way to Jerusalem,
  • 03:06 they're seeking God there,
  • 03:07 and they encounter the Lord and they sing these songs,
  • 03:11 and there are things that hit them when they do.
  • 03:13 Let me walk through some of this with you, please.
  • 03:16 In Psalm 128:1,
  • 03:18 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 03:26 And isn't that how the book of Psalms opens up in the first place?,
  • 03:30 where he says, [Speaking Hebrew]
  • 03:34 "Blessed is the man," or, "Happy is the man."
  • 03:38 Didn't the Lord Himself say, "Blessed are the poor,"
  • 03:41 "blessed are this"
  • 03:42 It's the Greek "makarios"
  • 03:44 but really it comes by way of the Hebrew, ashrey , "happiness",
  • 03:48 there's a kind of personal happiness.
  • 03:51 And this happiness manifests in a life
  • 03:56 that develops in a home.
  • 03:58 Thus, this happiness is available to everyone.
  • 04:02 In talking about a happiness from
  • 04:05 a good family, lovely children
  • 04:07 enduring generations,
  • 04:10 this is something that everybody can relate to.
  • 04:13 In verse 2 we're told that
  • 04:15 someone who's blessed in the Lord, who fears the Lord
  • 04:19 will enjoy the fruits of the labor of their hand.
  • 04:22 He says,
  • 04:24 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 04:30 And again, as I'd said earlier,
  • 04:32 at the end of the day, isn't that what people want?
  • 04:34 He says in verse 3, that your wife will be a fruitful vine,
  • 04:38 and thus the dramatic vignette that you saw
  • 04:41 with the children round about.
  • 04:43 Personally, I'm right on the heels of a marriage in my own family.
  • 04:47 My eldest son is getting married,
  • 04:49 and oh my world is so rich with hopes for the future,
  • 04:52 and so happy in wanting to see new generations emerge.
  • 04:56 I know that these impulses resonate within the psalmist.
  • 05:01 He says here in verse 4,
  • 05:02 "Surely thus shall the man be blessed."
  • 05:05 Did you know that God in fact has a blessing for you?
  • 05:09 It seems to me that the psalmist wants people to be reminded of that.
  • 05:13 And then to look at verse 5, and
  • 05:15 I want to camp there for a moment.
  • 05:16 Let me give it to you first in my version,
  • 05:18 and then we'll throw it into language you can understand.
  • 05:20 He says,
  • 05:21 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 05:41 It's not just prayers for personal well being,
  • 05:44 but as I'd said earlier,
  • 05:46 in so many ways, understandable ways,
  • 05:49 a personal happiness,
  • 05:50 a familiar well being
  • 05:52 is inextricably related to the overall success of a Commonwealth
  • 05:58 of which the condition of the Capital is so telling.
  • 06:02 That is, if the Capital is strong,
  • 06:05 if Jerusalem is strong,
  • 06:06 it's like the dews at Mount Hermon that
  • 06:09 descend then and water everything down the mountain, at the base,
  • 06:13 and points north, south, east and west.
  • 06:17 There needs to be a strong Capital.
  • 06:21 This can translate in our own culture
  • 06:23 where we want to have a government in Washington, D.C.
  • 06:27 that seems to reflect the Judeo-Christian values
  • 06:30 that many of those that watch this program would subscribe to.
  • 06:34 There's a sense in which if it's God's man,
  • 06:37 if there's God's values and virtues,
  • 06:40 then there's a chance that this can disseminate round about in our culture.
  • 06:45 Conversely, a sense that things are going awry in the Capital
  • 06:50 has affects as it trickles down out of Washington D.C. in our world,
  • 06:54 affects socially the kind of moral vision that's cast.
  • 06:58 There's economic concomitants to that as well as there's concerns.
  • 07:02 Goodness, if we're veering away from God in the Capital,
  • 07:06 then goodness, this can be felt street level.
  • 07:09 And so here, when they make their way to and through Jerusalem
  • 07:14 for these special pilgrimages that pilgrims give voice to,
  • 07:18 [Speaking first in Hebrew]
  • 07:25 "And may you see the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life."
  • 07:30 Friends, as you know, we close these programs
  • 07:33 praying for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • 07:36 Certainly we want God's Kingdom to come
  • 07:39 and His will to be done
  • 07:41 on earth, here, as it is in heaven.
  • 07:44 Oh, we want to see God's will done in Israel.
  • 07:47 And there's some work to be done in a world
  • 07:49 that seems to be cascading out of control,
  • 07:52 but I believe that God in fact is going to have
  • 07:55 this Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
  • 07:57 We're going to see eventually stability in this part of the world.
  • 08:01 Till such time as that though, it's good to know that we can see
  • 08:04 stability as God reaches into our families and strengthens and nurtures.
  • 08:08 He can do it for me.
  • 08:10 He can do it for you.
  • 08:27 Our Offer on this program
  • 08:29 the CD "I Call You Friend"
  • 08:31 by Marty Goetz,
  • 08:33 a beautiful compilation of Psalms set to music.
  • 08:36 Peaceful, soothing,
  • 08:38 It will transport you into areas of worship
  • 08:41 that are beyond your expectations.
  • 08:44 We're honored to have Marty with us
  • 08:46 during this special series of programs
  • 08:48 on the Book of Psalms.
  • 08:49 And we know that you'll find this CD to be a blessing.
  • 08:52 Call 1-800-WONDERS
  • 08:54 and ask for Marty Goetz's CD
  • 08:57 "I Call You Friend"
  • 09:00 Called "Psalms of Ascent"
  • 09:02 "Ascent comes from the word meaning "to go up".
  • 09:04 "Transcend" means "to cross over and go up".
  • 09:09 Helps us to cross coast to coast.
  • 09:11 Television isn't cheap.
  • 09:13 We don't want to just ascend,
  • 09:15 we want to transcend.
  • 09:16 We've got a great message.
  • 09:18 We need your help in telling it.
  • 09:20 Please be gracious and make a kind donation
  • 09:23 to Zola Levitt Ministries
  • 09:34 We just want to say thank you so much
  • 09:35 for your continued support
  • 09:37 which allows us to bring you Series
  • 09:39 just like this one.
  • 09:40 Now let's go to Psalm 129
  • 09:42 which is the Psalm of Protection.
  • 09:45 Let's go to Israel now.
  • 09:49 Bullying has been around forever.
  • 09:52 Repairing a fishing net is hard enough without hecklers pestering you,
  • 09:57 mocking you.
  • 10:00 This is a picture of Israel bullied,
  • 10:03 and ridiculed by nations that seek her demise.
  • 10:07 "Many a time have they afflicted me from youth", says the psalmist.
  • 10:11 "Yet, they have not prevailed against me."
  • 10:15 "The Lord is righteous, He hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked."
  • 10:20 "Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion."
  • 10:29 Bullies have been around for a long, long time.
  • 10:34 Many a boy and girl have been vexed by bullies,
  • 10:39 and felt the need to stand up and say, "Enough already!"
  • 10:44 Might have been the case with you or someone within your family.
  • 10:49 Certainly within the Jewish family we have felt the need
  • 10:52 to stand up and say, "Enough already!"
  • 10:57 Anyone who has read the Bible,
  • 10:59 and for me, the Bible among other things
  • 11:02 is the Jewish Family Diary.
  • 11:05 It tells lots of stories of people prevailing...
  • 11:10 assailing, rather, against the Jews,
  • 11:13 and the Jews standing up.
  • 11:17 Speaking of standing up, I am standing up in a place right now
  • 11:21 that's remembered in Israel as a place
  • 11:24 where people take a stand and make a stand.
  • 11:28 It's Latrun
  • 11:30 It's a museum that commemorates the armored divisions
  • 11:34 in the Israeli Defense Forces.
  • 11:38 And here there's a story that seems to tell it all doesn't it?
  • 11:44 Brave men, out from the armor, jumping down, ready to engage.
  • 11:50 Whether it's engaging individuals from within the tank,
  • 11:53 or stepping out and engaging outside.
  • 11:57 The point is sometimes we need to engage.
  • 12:01 It's a scary business,
  • 12:02 it's an unpleasant business.
  • 12:04 My son Zachary once quoted Shakespeare
  • 12:07 when we were talking about the need for men to stand up.
  • 12:10 And he looked at me, and I was never prouder than when Zac said,"Dad",
  • 12:13 "You know, Shakespeare said, 'A coward dies a thousand deaths,"
  • 12:18 "'but the valiant die only once."
  • 12:23 It was Shakespeare's way, of course, of giving voice
  • 12:26 to the need for courage and persistence.
  • 12:29 I don't get on television to talk about Shakespeare.
  • 12:32 I have another author to refer to in Psalm Chapter 129.
  • 12:38 That's a littler closer to home to what I'm all about.
  • 12:41 In Psalms Chapter 129 the psalmist talks about
  • 12:44 how the enemies keep coming and coming and coming,
  • 12:49 and it's like it doesn't stop, it's perennial.
  • 12:51 But there's a statement here in Psalm 129, verse 2.
  • 12:55 I want to give it to you in Hebrew and then in English.
  • 13:06 "Before that, many times through my youth they've come and this and that,"
  • 13:10 "but they have not prevailed against me."
  • 13:16 Let's do a whirlwind tour of the Bible,
  • 13:20 not to cover every subject in 4 minutes,
  • 13:23 but, you know the story,
  • 13:25 there was a time when the Israelites where bested by the Egyptians.
  • 13:30 Very, very unfair, in the clutches of
  • 13:34 Paroh Melech Mizraim "Pharaoh the King of Egypt".
  • 13:38 And you know what happened?
  • 13:39 A great miracle.
  • 13:40 God sent Moshe Rabbeinu , "Moses"
  • 13:42 and the Children of Israel were delivered from Egypt.
  • 13:47 Esther of course, is a story in the Hebrew Bible about a woman
  • 13:51 who was well placed, "for such a time as this".
  • 13:54 And what was the time?
  • 13:56 Well, there in the Persian realm there was a fellow Haman
  • 13:59 who was hell bent on destroying the Jews.
  • 14:01 In fact, it could have happened.
  • 14:03 She interceded and the Jews were afforded the opportunity
  • 14:06 to make a spirited defense,
  • 14:09 and Jews did.
  • 14:11 The net result is that God gave us favor.
  • 14:14 Oh, it's a joy to celebrate Purim in a Jewish home,
  • 14:18 in a Jewish Synagogue,
  • 14:19 here in the Jewish Homeland,
  • 14:21 to see all the joy that goes along with the holiday.
  • 14:24 It's something to behold.
  • 14:26 Purim is one example.
  • 14:28 A Passover, or the
  • 14:30 "Egyptian debacle" is another.
  • 14:31 God delivered us from that.
  • 14:33 The story of Hanukkah is celebrated in the Jewish world,
  • 14:36 when the Syrians were bent on destroying the Jewish people.
  • 14:41 Nes Gadol Haya Shin
  • 14:42 "A great miracle happened there."
  • 14:45 The story is played out in the inter-testimental period
  • 14:49 between the Old and the New Testaments, that is.
  • 14:52 It tells of a time when Antiochus Epiphanies ran over the Jewish people
  • 14:56 and endeavored to destroy us.
  • 14:58 But you know what happened?
  • 15:00 People stood up and made a spirited defense.
  • 15:05 It seems that in every generation, or in many generations,
  • 15:08 God calls Jewish people to stand up.
  • 15:11 That is why I love the expression in the Hebrew Bible,
  • 15:14 [First in Hebrew]
  • 15:21 Standing up, contending.
  • 15:23 You know I think sometimes we
  • 15:26 just are a little too comfortable,
  • 15:28 and we prefer life that's easy.
  • 15:31 You can find a church where the Reverend says,
  • 15:33 "just sit your tuchus here in the pew and everything's going to be good for you."
  • 15:38 It's overly simplistic.
  • 15:40 Or, a Reverend can say,
  • 15:42 "Read this book and say this prayer this way,"
  • 15:45 "and then the trials are going to evaporate."
  • 15:47 It doesn't always go away quick.
  • 15:49 It doesn't' always go away easy.
  • 15:51 Coming from Latrun, I want to tell you however,
  • 15:54 that if you've got God on your side
  • 15:57 you are going to be able to say like the psalmist said,
  • 16:00 [Speaking in Hebrew]
  • 16:03 "They have not prevailed against me."
  • 16:09 I have to admit that I think sometimes
  • 16:11 we forget or take for granted
  • 16:13 how great we have it here in America
  • 16:15 compared to other places in the world.
  • 16:17 That's true,
  • 16:18 and no matter where you live
  • 16:20 know that God is there to protect you.
  • 16:24 The Bible says, "Call upon the Name of the Lord."
  • 16:26 "He will be there, and He will be faithful to protect His people."
  • 16:29 That's right, "faithfulness"
  • 16:31 is another Name for God.
  • 16:32 Let's go to our Hebrew Lesson.
  • 16:39 Shalom Havarim !
  • 16:41 We're here in the City of Jerusalem
  • 16:43 talking about the Names of God.
  • 16:45 One of the Names that I love is
  • 16:47 Adonai Tsoo-ree
  • 16:49 "God my Rock"
  • 16:51 Tsoo-ree comes from the word " Tsoo " which means "a big rock".
  • 16:56 Kind of like Yosemite, and Yellowstone.
  • 16:59 That kind of big rock.
  • 17:01 Adonai Tsoo-ree
  • 17:03 When I stand on that Rock
  • 17:05 in my life,
  • 17:06 in my prayer,
  • 17:07 in my exultation,
  • 17:09 nothing can move me,
  • 17:11 nothing can attack me or touch my life
  • 17:14 when I stand on that Tsoo ,
  • 17:17 on the Rock that is God.
  • 17:19 The Bible also mentions
  • 17:21 God in this Name,
  • 17:23 Tsoo Yisrael ,
  • 17:25 which means "The Rock of Israel"
  • 17:27 And how many of us know that God
  • 17:30 is a keeper of His promises.
  • 17:32 He keeps Israel on that Rock.
  • 17:35 On that Solid Foundation.
  • 17:37 So this week as we pray and we worship,
  • 17:41 we can say, God you are my Rock,
  • 17:44 I shall not be moved.
  • 17:46 Adonai Tsoo-ree
  • 17:50 Thank you so much Sarah.
  • 17:51 We love her teaching each week.
  • 17:53 So are you ready to do this word with us?
  • 17:55 Let's try it.
  • 17:56 Adonai Tsoo-ree
  • 17:58 He's our Rock
  • 17:59 That's right.
  • 18:00 He is faithful.
  • 18:01 Yes, our faithful Rock.
  • 18:02 That's a good word today.
  • 18:04 Stay with us.
  • 18:05 We'll be right back.

  • 20:12 We asked Chaim recently about his family life in Israel.
  • 20:17 Let's go to Chaim now.
  • 20:23 The family unit is different here than in other countries.
  • 20:26 Some countries have to wait an entire year to see their family.
  • 20:29 We see them every Shabbat .
  • 20:31 Shabbat is really the core,
  • 20:32 but the whole of this country is called a [familic] core structure.
  • 20:36 Think of every holiday Israel has.
  • 20:39 Think of how on Passover we all come together
  • 20:42 and the children ask the questions.
  • 20:44 Think of how on Tabernacles even the stranger
  • 20:46 is welcomed in and treated as family.
  • 20:48 It is so important that we all know that we each have a role.
  • 20:52 You know, the Kibbutz structure is everyone playing their roles.
  • 20:55 We all get to use the cars in a Kibbutz structure
  • 20:57 And you know, that's what we are a part of.
  • 21:00 We're all part of the family of God.
  • 21:02 We're all part of the team building exercise
  • 21:04 of restoration that God has for us.
  • 21:07 Thank you for playing your family role.
  • 21:12 Thank you Chaim Malespin
  • 21:13 We are honored to call you our friend.
  • 21:15 And viewers, I want you to know that
  • 21:18 Chaim Malespin in person
  • 21:21 is just as genuine and energetic as he appears on camera.
  • 21:24 We are so thrilled that he is part of our team.
  • 21:26 Now let's go Akko in Northern Israel
  • 21:29 where Eitan Showoff is waiting for us.
  • 21:37 Shalom , I'm Eitan Showoff.
  • 21:38 And I want to welcome you to Israel.
  • 21:40 Behind me is quite an historic portion of Israel.
  • 21:44 It's the town of Akko.
  • 21:45 It dates back 5,000 years.
  • 21:47 Currently you're looking at the Old City portion.
  • 21:50 Akko's a fascinating town.
  • 21:52 It has both Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis.
  • 21:55 In the first century it was a stopover point for the Apostle Paul.
  • 21:59 In Acts Chapter 21 we read about the town.
  • 22:02 Then it was called "Ptolemais" in Greek.
  • 22:04 Apparently there was a Messianic Jewish group there,
  • 22:08 at least a house group.
  • 22:09 Well, today we're seeing a repeat in the 21st Century
  • 22:13 of what happened in the first Century,
  • 22:14 and that is that Messianic Jewish Hebrew speaking
  • 22:17 congregations were being planted around Israel.
  • 22:20 And some 5 years ago we had the privilege
  • 22:22 of planting and sponsoring a congregation here in Akko.
  • 22:26 It's led by a young man named Guy Cohen, who's a native Israeli
  • 22:29 who grew up in the Town of Akko.
  • 22:31 And so his testimony also as a man who was
  • 22:35 a part of an Orthodox Jewish education for some years,
  • 22:39 has a great deal of credibility,
  • 22:41 and I want to say that part of what God is doing in Israel today
  • 22:45 is raising up young leaders.
  • 22:47 I find myself as a man not born in Israel,
  • 22:49 but came here 18 years ago as an immigrant
  • 22:52 in the position to be able to train and mentor, father and coach
  • 22:56 these young men and women,
  • 22:58 and it's the most fulfilling thing that I could possibly be doing.
  • 23:02 We're releasing these young leaders to plant fresh congregations
  • 23:06 and to move into the societies in areas
  • 23:09 of education, law, business,
  • 23:11 and we see that this is the way that the Messiah's going to be
  • 23:16 working in this time in Israel.
  • 23:18 The concept of planting congregations and of spreading out,
  • 23:22 is one that of course is common in the Book of Acts,
  • 23:25 where the first Messianic Jewish messengers
  • 23:28 gathered together, for instances in Acts Chapter 13.
  • 23:31 They sought the Lord, the prayed,
  • 23:33 and the Holy Spirit spoke to them and said,
  • 23:36 I want Paul and Barnabas to go out, I have work for them to do.
  • 23:40 And they spread out into the Mediterranean world of that day.
  • 23:43 This is really the spirit of the original Messianic Jewish community
  • 23:47 and we are thrilled to be able to
  • 23:49 walk in their footsteps now in the 21st Century.
  • 23:53 We invite you to join us through prayer and participation,
  • 23:57 to be a part of this tremendous renewal and restoration
  • 24:02 of what the Lord did some 2,000 years ago.
