Psalms 67:4

Context

67:4 Let foreigners 1  rejoice and celebrate!

For you execute justice among the nations,

and govern the people living on earth. 2  (Selah)

1 tn Or “peoples.”

2 tn Heb “for you judge nations fairly, and [as for the] peoples in the earth, you lead them.” The imperfects are translated with the present tense because the statement is understood as a generalization about God’s providential control of the world. Another option is to understand the statement as anticipating God’s future rule (“for you will rule…and govern”).
