Verse 1

67:1 [To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm [or] Song.] God be merciful unto us, and bless us; [and] {a} cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

(a) That is, move our hearts with his Holy Spirit, that we may feel his favour toward us.

Verse 2

67:2 That {b} thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.

(b) That both Jews and Gentiles may know God’s covenant made with them.

Verse 4

67:4 {c} O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.

Verse 6

67:6 [Then] shall {d} the earth yield her increase; [and] God, [even] our own God, shall bless us.

(d) He shows that where God favours there will be abundance of all other things.

Verse 7

67:7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth {e} shall fear him.

(e) When they feel his great benefits both spiritual and corporal toward them.
