First Blast: Text
He lifts me up upon a rock
Second Blast: Commentary
The Metzudat David, an 18th century commentator, paraphrases this verse: “He would lift me up to overcome [my enemies] as if I were standing on a tall rock, because the one who stands above becomes stronger than the one who stands below.” Here, then, the psalm shifts from God as protector to God as giving a distinct advantage over one’s enemies.
Third Blast: Practice
Find a large rock and stand on top of it, and experience the feeling of power and protection.
