But to your name bring honor, 2

115:2 Why should the nations say,

“Where is their God?”

2 tn Or “give glory.”

3 sn The psalmist asks the Lord to demonstrate his loyal love and faithfulness, not simply so Israel may benefit, but primarily so that the Lord will receive honor among the nations, who will recognize, contrary to their present view (see v. 2), that Israel’s God is committed to his people.
