Psalm 120 was the first of the “Songs of degrees,” Psalms that were sung by Jewish pilgrims as they traveled from different lands to the Temple for worship. As they made their pilgrimage from foreign lands, they would sing, “Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar! My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.”
The New Testament reminds the Christian that he is also a pilgrim and a sojourner in this world, and that fleshly lusts war against the soul. This message uses the illustration of Psalm 120 to describe the life of a Christian, sojourning in a cold and unwelcome environment, while dealing with his biggest problem of all – the enemy that lives inside the same tent, with whom there can be no peace.
