Psalms 67:3 Meaning and Commentary

Psalms 67:3

Let the people praise thee, O God
Let them have occasion to praise God, the people of the Jews, for the mission of Christ, and for the blessings of grace and peace with him;

let all the people praise thee;
all the nations of the world, for making known the way of life and grace, and the saving health or salvation of God unto them: the word used signifies to "confess" F13; and so the Targum,

``the people shall confess before thee, O God; all the people shall confess before thee;''

that is, shall confess their sins, being made sensible of them; and confess the true and living God, turning from their idols to serve him; and Christ to be the only Saviour and Redeemer, being now made known unto them, through the preaching of the Gospel.
