|1||A song of the ascents|
and how pleasant
it is for kin to sit
The words of the first verse relate to both verses we have looked at recently - Genesis 1 and Psalm 136 about the good, and also the Shema, where the word one occurs.
The word I translated as hey! is the traditional behold! - It can mean - look at me! The very thing that youngsters sometimes sing. I told them the story of the 15 rising steps of the temple and the Songs of Ascent of which this is one (Psalms 120-134).
An example of the sound of the music and a full translation for the psalm is here. (I did not have full orchestra available.)
