NOTES: This series of psalms is written as a journey; it is constructed as a quest motif. It conveys a sense of adventure, destination, and progress.

There are five sets of three Psalms each. The middle – hinge – section consists of Psalms 126 – 128. The hinge of the middle section is Psalm 127. The purposeful message here is: the key to blessing (both individual and corporate), successful worship, and the accomplishment of God’s work in the world focuses on the family.
