Chronological Reading Plan for May 1, Psalm 133

Today's short reading is Psalm 133. Tomorrow's are Psalms 106 & 107. 

David's psalm of praise reflects the unity and peace with which God has blessed Israel as David leads them. This is a stark contrast to the time of Saul's leadership where in-fighting and war was the order of the day. 


Notice the slight shift of emphasis from Mt Sinai, where the law was given, to Mt Zion in the Promised Land. As Jerusalem is established as the capital and center of spiritual activity it will grow in importance, ultimately becoming the epicenter of deliverance and salvation for the entire world. The Old Testament is dominated by Mt SInai, the New Testament by Mt Zion.
