Psalms 67

Dummelow's Commentary on the BibleDummelow on the Bible

Verses 1-7

This short and joyful Ps. is in the first place a harvest thanksgiving (Psalms 67:6), perhaps at the Feast of Tabernacles. God’s goodness to Israel reveals Him also to the nations (Psalms 67:2), and calls forth their praise (Psalms 67:3, Psalms 67:5), their submission (Psalms 67:4), and their worship (Psalms 67:7). There is a symmetrical parallelism on either side of the middle verse, Psalms 67:5 corresponding to Psalms 67:3, and Psalms 67:6-7 to Psalms 67:1, Psalms 67:2.

1. This v. is partly taken from the priestly benediction (Numbers 6:24), but with the change of ’the Lord’(Jehovah) into ’God’ (Elohim).

2. Thy way] of dealing with men. Saving health] salvation.

3. People] RV’peoples.’ S o in Psalms 67:4, Psalms 67:5.

4. Righteously] RV ’with equity.’ Govern] RM’lead,’ as H e led Israel.

6. RV ’The earth hath yielded her increase.’
