Verses 1-7

Psalms 67:0

The Fullest Blessing

This brief Psalm does not permit any division. It is closely linked with the preceding one, telling us of the fullest blessings in store for Israel and the whole earth, when the new day has dawned and the King reigns. If this little Psalm in its prophetic message were understood it would end forever all postmillennial misconceptions as to the conversion of the world. Israel prays that the Lord may be gracious to them as He will in that coming day. As a result of Israel’s conversion by the coming of the Lord, His way will be known upon the earth and His salvation among the nations. Then the peoples will praise, and the nations will be glad and rejoice. The Lord will be King of nations (verse 4) and the earth yield her increase. Here is God’s way for the full blessing the earth and the race needs. Israel prays “God shall bless us” and as the result “all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.” But Israel’s blessing is inseparably connected with the return of our Lord. No blessing and restoration till He comes again.
