Psalms 67

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary



Psalms 42-83 are Elohistic, i.e. they use the word God (Elohim) and avoid the proper name Yahweh, probably from motives of reverence. Here and there, however, the name Yahweh has crept into the text by a natural slip of the scribes.

Verses 1-7

LXVII. An Expansion of the High Priest’ s Blessing ( Numbers 6:24-26).— The Jews have had an abundant harvest, and the Psalmist hopes that Yahweh’ s favour to Israel may lead other nations to a knowledge of the true God.
