High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Song of Ascents is a
title given to fifteen of the Psalms, 120-134 (119-133 in the
Septuagint and the Vulgate), that each starts with the ascription
(Hebrew:, Shir Hama'aloth ). They are also variously called Gradual
Psalms, Songs of Degrees, Songs of Steps or Pilgrim Songs. Four of
them (122, 124, 131 and 133) are claimed in their ascriptions to
have been written by David, and one (127) by Solomon, the rest
being anonymous. Some modern scholars do not believe that these
ascriptions can be taken literally, although they give evidence
that helps in dating of the Psalms and identifying their original
use. The probable origin of this name is the circumstance that
these psalms came to be sung by the people on the ascents or goings
up to Jerusalem to attend the three pilgrim festivals (Deuteronomy
16:16) or by the kohanim (priests) as they ascended the steps to
minister at the Temple in Jerusalem.
