In this further ‘Song of Ascent’ the pilgrims have arrived in Zion. After the journey to get there, they arrive in the place where they will worship God. The psalmist here rejoices though in ‘dwelling together in unity’ with God’s children. Being with the people of God gives him great joy. Indeed the psalm paints 2 pictures of the Pleasantness of Unity and we consider also both the Pain and Purpose of Unity.
