The high and Holy is a term that originally meant set apart for the worship or service of God. While the term may refer to people, objects, time, or places, holiness in Judaism and Christianity primarily denotes the realm of the divine More God dwells also with the humble and the contrite.
This verse echoes the message of A psalm is a song of praise. In the Old Testament 150 psalms comprise the psalter, although some of the psalms are laments and thanksgivings. In the New Testament early Christians gathered to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. More 113, and both texts proclaim the heart of biblical theology. God is the lofty one, the high and holy God, the Creator of all that is! But this same God chooses to make a home with the humble in spirit, the contrite, the lowly, in order to revive their hearts and spirits. Psalm 113:4-7 exults over the same thing in its worship poetry: “The LORD is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap” (NIV).
