Psalm 117[a]

The Nations Called to Praise

Praise the Lord, all you nations!
    Extol him, all you peoples!(A)
His mercy for us is strong;
    the faithfulness of the Lord is forever.


  1. Psalm 117 This shortest of hymns calls on the nations to acknowledge God’s supremacy. The supremacy of Israel’s God has been demonstrated to them by the people’s secure existence, which is owed entirely to God’s gracious fidelity.
