Psalm 67

All Will Praise God

For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A psalm. A song.

May God be gracious to us and bless us;
look on us with favor(A)Selah
so that Your way may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations.(B)

Let the peoples praise You, God;
let all the peoples praise You.(C)
Let the nations rejoice and shout for joy,
for You judge the peoples with fairness
and lead the nations on earth.(D)Selah
Let the peoples praise You, God,
let all the peoples praise You.(E)

The earth has produced its harvest;
God, our God, blesses us.(F)
God will bless us,
and all the ends of the earth will fear Him.(G)

May he rule from sea to sea
and from the Euphrates
to the ends of the earth.(A)
May desert tribes kneel before him
and his enemies lick the dust.(B)
10 May the kings of Tarshish
and the coasts and islands bring tribute,
the kings of Sheba and Seba offer gifts.(C)
11 Let all kings bow down to him,
all nations serve him.(D)

Judah’s Security

12 An Oracle

The word of the Lord concerning Israel.
A declaration of the Lord,
who stretched out the heavens,(A)
laid the foundation of the earth,(B)
and formed the spirit of man within him.

“Look, I will make Jerusalem a cup that causes staggering(C) for the peoples who surround the city. The siege against Jerusalem will also involve Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who try to lift it will injure themselves severely when all the nations of the earth gather against her.(D) On that day”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness.(E) I will keep a watchful eye on(F) the house of Judah but strike all the horses of the nations with blindness. Then each of the leaders of Judah will think to himself: The residents of Jerusalem are my strength through the Lord of Hosts, their God. On that day I will make the leaders of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves; they will consume all the peoples around them on the right and the left, while Jerusalem continues to be inhabited on its site, in Jerusalem. The Lord will save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of David’s house and the glory of Jerusalem’s residents may not be greater than that of Judah. On that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that on that day the one who is weakest among them will be like David on that day, and the house of David will be like God, like the Angel of the Lord, before them. On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Mourning for the Pierced One

10 “Then I will pour out a spirit[a](G) of grace and prayer on the house of David and the residents of Jerusalem, and they will look at[b] Me whom they pierced. They will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child and weep bitterly for Him as one weeps for a firstborn.(H)

Israel’s Rejection Not Final

11 I ask, then, have they stumbled in order to fall? Absolutely not! On the contrary, by their stumbling,[a] salvation has come to the Gentiles(A) to make Israel jealous. 12 Now if their stumbling[b] brings riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full number bring!(B)
