Forms, Continued

Songs of Zion – These praise Jerusalem, the habitation of God. Some of this type, those known as “songs of ascent,” “songs of degrees” or “pilgrimage psalms,” were apparently sung by those on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem at the time of the annual feasts. These include: Psalms 42-43, 46, 48, 76, 84, 87, and 120-34.
