Psalm 67 is also the Old Testament expression of Jesus’ instruction to us, that we are to pray. Bless Them, Bless Me and Bless all involved. (Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 NIV), One thing I realize is pain is going to come on us when we least expect it. But through it all God is with us. You can see a water hose with a drip it is like going good. drip, drip and drip. Then someone comes along and turns it on full blast. This it is like sudden pain. Our life can be going good like that drip and then all of a sudden pain. We realize we was to busy praying for others to pray for ourselves. But then God reminds us He has not left. We realize God’s graciousness to us when he answers our prayer from us to remove the pain. So we need to pray for others and ourselves and give God all the praise and glory. ” What Psalm 67 means ” explains them. Bible students do not know who wrote this psalm, or when. It uses two ideas from the Old Testament, one is from the Book of Numbers. The other is from the Book of Genesis. Here is Numbers 6:24-26 NIV”‘ “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’. They are words that God spoke to Moses, for Moses to tell the people. *LORD is a special name for God.
Psalm 67:1-7
(For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm. A song.)
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us. May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.
