Scroll of the Psalms

Psalm 132 is the 132nd psalm from the Book of Psalms. It is one of 15 psalms that begins with the words "A song of ascents" (Shir Hama'alot).





As St Benedict of Nursia mostly attributed the last psalms to the vespers' offices, this Psalm 132 (131) was traditionally performed during the celebration of Vespers on Tuesday, according to the rule of St. Benedict, fixed at 530.[4][5]

With regard to the current Liturgy of the Hours, Psalm 132 is repeatedly recited at the Office of Readings on the Saturday of the first week, [6] and at Vespers on the Thursday of the third week. It is separated into two parts. In the liturgy of the Mass he is read for the feast of the Assumption.
