8.Psalms 120–134 are referred to as Songs of Ascents. They are hymns during or commemorating the approach by the exiles returning from Babylon to Jerusalem. (Jerusalem is set on a mountain about one half mile above sea level, so the exiles would “ascend” to Jerusalem.)
9.Psalm 117 is the shortest Psalm, which simply consists of two verses of praise.
10.Psalm 119 is the longest Psalm. It is composed of 176 verses, in stanzas of eight verses; each verse of a stanza begins with same letter of one of the 22 Hebrew letters. The stanzas are arranged in alphabetical order. (Alpha to Taw) Often referred to as David’s Acr
