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.
When this psalm was written, it was to praise God, and also a prayer for the conversion of the Gentiles and the bringing of them into the same faith ie Jews and non-Jews unite to worship the same God. Today, we believe Christians and non-Christians will one day unite to worship the same God.
