June 17, Day 169 - Psalm 67

Click here to go to Psalm 67

When I read this Psalm I think of it as a prayer for the nation or other groups. This Psalm echoes the priestly blessing from Numbers 6:24-26. 

I love how The Voice translates verse 1:
May God pour His grace and blessings into us and turn His face to shine His light on us.

I like the idea of God's grace and blessings being poured into me. 

And the last verse is equally as good:
God is the source of our blessings; may every corner of the earth respect and revere Him.

God is good!


  1. A beautiful Psalm for a beautiful day.

  2. Psalm 67
    1 May God be gracious to us and bless us;
    look on us with favor Selah
    2 so that Your way may be known on earth,
    Your salvation among all nations.
    5 Let the people give thanks to you, O God. Let all the people give thanks to you.

    Yes, I agree, Numbers 6:24-26 exemplifies Psalm 67 in that God is our refuse and our strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

    Numbers 6:24-26
    New Living Translation (NLT)

    24 ‘May the Lord bless you
    and protect you.
    25 May the Lord smile on you
    and be gracious to you.
    26 May the Lord show you his favor
    and give you his peace.’

    Psalm 91:1-2 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him I trust.
