Psalm 134
Pulpit Commentary
Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.
Verse 2. - Lift up your hands. The attitude of prayer and praise (Psalm 63:4; Psalm 119:48; Psalm 141:2). In the sanctuary; rather, towards the sanctuary; i.e. towards the holy of holies. Others render, "in holiness." And bless the Lord (compare the first clause of ver. 1).
The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
Verse 3. - The Lord that made heaven and earth (comp. Genesis 1:1; Psalm 115:15; Psalm 121:2; Psalm 124:8; Psalm 146:6). Bless thee out of Zion. God was regarded as dwelling in Zion, and therefore as giving his blessings out of Zion (comp. Psalm 20:2; Psalm 53:6; Psalm 128:5).
