The song of all people

Psalm 67:3 “Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you!”

Praise of God will become the song of all peoples. This is not yet. There are many who do not praise Him. There are many who are outright haters of God. There are many who worship “god”, but not the God of the Bible.
God will judge, so says the next verse. He will judge “with equity”. He is the perfect judge, perfect in His righteousness. Those who have despised and rejected His rule will be judged equitably, fairly, according to the perfect standard of the righteous judge. This seems hard, but consider God’s mercy.
Many will be judged but pronounced “righteous.” They will be able to stand before God. They will praise Him.
The song of praise that His people will sing also contains a large measure of thankfulness.
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” There is not one of us who could stand before the righteous judge. We can stand before Him and praise Him because of the perfect righteousness of Another.
Praise and thankfulness are joined together through the One who has saved us.
