YESHUAH and his Talmidim Sang Together

…. at the end of the passover… The record reads: “And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives” (Mark 14:26). Unquestionably what YESHUAH and his disciples sang was from the Psalms. It was the custom of the Jews to sing at the close of the Passover meal, Psalm 115 to 118. The manner of singing was what we would call chanting, and the music itself was in the minor key. Orthodox Jews today observe similar customs.

Psalms Chapter 115 תְּהִלִּים

א לֹא לָנוּ יְהוָה, לֹא-לָנוּ: כִּי-לְשִׁמְךָ, תֵּן כָּבוֹד–עַל-חַסְדְּךָ, עַל-אֲמִתֶּךָ. 1
Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy mercy, and for Thy truth’s sake.
ב לָמָּה, יֹאמְרוּ הַגּוֹיִם: אַיֵּה-נָא, אֱלֹהֵיהֶם. 2
Wherefore should the nations say: ‘Where is now their God?’
ג וֵאלֹהֵינוּ בַשָּׁמָיִם– כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-חָפֵץ עָשָׂה. 3
But our God is in the heavens; whatsoever pleased Him He hath done.
ד עֲצַבֵּיהֶם, כֶּסֶף וְזָהָב; מַעֲשֵׂה, יְדֵי אָדָם. 4
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
ה פֶּה-לָהֶם, וְלֹא יְדַבֵּרוּ; עֵינַיִם לָהֶם, וְלֹא יִרְאוּ. 5
They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;
ו אָזְנַיִם לָהֶם, וְלֹא יִשְׁמָעוּ; אַף לָהֶם, וְלֹא יְרִיחוּן. 6
They have ears, but they hear not; noses have they, but they smell not;
ז יְדֵיהֶם, וְלֹא יְמִישׁוּן–רַגְלֵיהֶם, וְלֹא יְהַלֵּכוּ; לֹא-יֶהְגּוּ, בִּגְרוֹנָם. 7
They have hands, but they handle not; feet have they, but they walk not; neither speak they with their throat.
ח כְּמוֹהֶם, יִהְיוּ עֹשֵׂיהֶם– כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-בֹּטֵחַ בָּהֶם. 8 They that make them shall be like unto them; yea, every one that trusteth in them.
ט יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּטַח בַּיהוָה; עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא. 9
O Israel, trust thou in the LORD! He is their help and their shield!
י בֵּית אַהֲרֹן, בִּטְחוּ בַיהוָה; עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא. 10
O house of Aaron, trust ye in the LORD! He is their help and their shield!
יא יִרְאֵי יְהוָה, בִּטְחוּ בַיהוָה; עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא. 11
Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield.
יב יְהוָה, זְכָרָנוּ יְבָרֵךְ:
יְבָרֵךְ, אֶת-בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל; יְבָרֵךְ, אֶת-בֵּית אַהֲרֹן. 12
The LORD hath been mindful of us, He will bless– {N}
He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.
יג יְבָרֵךְ, יִרְאֵי יְהוָה– הַקְּטַנִּים, עִם-הַגְּדֹלִים. 13
He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
יד יֹסֵף יְהוָה עֲלֵיכֶם; עֲלֵיכֶם, וְעַל בְּנֵיכֶם. 14
The LORD increase you more and more, you and your children.
טו בְּרוּכִים אַתֶּם, לַיהוָה– עֹשֵׂה, שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ. 15
Blessed be ye of the LORD who made heaven and earth.
טז הַשָּׁמַיִם שָׁמַיִם, לַיהוָה; וְהָאָרֶץ, נָתַן לִבְנֵי-אָדָם. 16
The heavens are the heavens of the LORD; but the earth hath He given to the children of men.
יז לֹא הַמֵּתִים, יְהַלְלוּ-יָהּ; וְלֹא, כָּל-יֹרְדֵי דוּמָה. 17
The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence;
18 .יח וַאֲנַחְנוּ, נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ– מֵעַתָּה וְעַד-עוֹלָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ.
But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for ever. {N}
Hallelujah.

Psalms Chapter 116 תְּהִלִּים

א אָהַבְתִּי, כִּי-יִשְׁמַע יְהוָה– אֶת-קוֹלִי, תַּחֲנוּנָי. 1
I love that the LORD should hear my voice and my supplications.
ב כִּי-הִטָּה אָזְנוֹ לִי; וּבְיָמַי אֶקְרָא. 2
Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him all my days.
ג אֲפָפוּנִי, חֶבְלֵי-מָוֶת–וּמְצָרֵי שְׁאוֹל מְצָאוּנִי; צָרָה וְיָגוֹן אֶמְצָא. 3
The cords of death compassed me, and the straits of the nether-world got hold upon me; I found trouble and sorrow.
ד וּבְשֵׁם-יְהוָה אֶקְרָא: אָנָּה יְהוָה, מַלְּטָה נַפְשִׁי. 4
But I called upon the name of the LORD: ‘I beseech thee, O LORD, deliver my soul.’
ה חַנּוּן יְהוָה וְצַדִּיק; וֵאלֹהֵינוּ מְרַחֵם. 5
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is compassionate.
ו שֹׁמֵר פְּתָאיִם יְהוָה; דַּלֹּתִי, וְלִי יְהוֹשִׁיעַ. 6
The LORD preserveth the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.
ז שׁוּבִי נַפְשִׁי, לִמְנוּחָיְכִי: כִּי-יְהוָה, גָּמַל עָלָיְכִי. 7
Return, O my soul, unto thy rest; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
ח כִּי חִלַּצְתָּ נַפְשִׁי, מִמָּוֶת: אֶת-עֵינִי מִן-דִּמְעָה; אֶת-רַגְלִי מִדֶּחִי. 8
For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.
ט אֶתְהַלֵּךְ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה– בְּאַרְצוֹת, הַחַיִּים. 9
I shall walk before the LORD in the lands of the living.
י הֶאֱמַנְתִּי, כִּי אֲדַבֵּר; אֲנִי, עָנִיתִי מְאֹד. 10
I trusted even when I spoke: ‘I am greatly afflicted.’
יא אֲנִי, אָמַרְתִּי בְחָפְזִי: כָּל-הָאָדָם כֹּזֵב. 11
I said in my haste: ‘All men are liars.’
יב מָה-אָשִׁיב לַיהוָה– כָּל-תַּגְמוּלוֹהִי עָלָי. 12
How can I repay unto the LORD all His bountiful dealings toward me?
יג כּוֹס-יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂא; וּבְשֵׁם יְהוָה אֶקְרָא. 13
I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
יד נְדָרַי, לַיהוָה אֲשַׁלֵּם; נֶגְדָה-נָּא, לְכָל-עַמּוֹ. 14
My vows will I pay unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all His people.
טו יָקָר, בְּעֵינֵי יְהוָה– הַמָּוְתָה, לַחֲסִידָיו. 15
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.
טז אָנָּה יְהוָה, כִּי-אֲנִי עַבְדֶּךָ:
אֲנִי-עַבְדְּךָ, בֶּן-אֲמָתֶךָ; פִּתַּחְתָּ, לְמוֹסֵרָי. 16
I beseech Thee, O LORD, for I am Thy servant; {N}
I am Thy servant, the son of Thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bands.
יז לְךָ-אֶזְבַּח, זֶבַח תּוֹדָה; וּבְשֵׁם יְהוָה אֶקְרָא. 17
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
יח נְדָרַי, לַיהוָה אֲשַׁלֵּם; נֶגְדָה-נָּא, לְכָל-עַמּוֹ. 18
I will pay my vows unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all His people;
13 .יט בְּחַצְרוֹת, בֵּית יְהוָה– בְּתוֹכֵכִי יְרוּשָׁלִָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ.
In the courts of the LORD’S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. {N}
Hallelujah.

Psalms Chapter 117 תְּהִלִּים

א הַלְלוּ אֶת-יְהוָה, כָּל-גּוֹיִם; שַׁבְּחוּהוּ, כָּל-הָאֻמִּים. 1
O praise the LORD, all ye nations; laud Him, all ye peoples.
ב כִּי גָבַר עָלֵינוּ, חַסְדּוֹ– וֶאֱמֶת-יְהוָה לְעוֹלָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 2
For His mercy is great toward us; and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. {N}
Hallelujah.
