Ps 67:1-7. A prayer that, by God's blessing on His people, His salvation and praise may be extended over the earth.

1. cause his face to shine--show us favor (Nu 6:24, 25; Ps 31:16).

2. thy way--of gracious dealing (Isa 55:8), as explained by--
saving health--or literally, "salvation."

6, 7. The blessings of a fruitful harvest are mentioned as types of greater and spiritual blessings, under which all nations shall fear and love God.
