Psalms 67:6-7

Context

67:6 The earth yields its crops.

May God, our God, bless us!

67:7 May God bless us! 1 

Then all the ends of the earth will give him the honor he deserves. 2 

1 tn The prefixed verb forms in vv. 6b-7a are understood as jussives.

2 tn Heb “will fear him.” After the jussive of the preceding line, the prefixed verbal form with prefixed vav (ו) conjunctive is understood as indicating purpose/result. (Note how v. 3 anticipates the universal impact of God showing his people blessing.) Another option is to take the verb as a jussive and translate, “Let all the ends of the earth fear him.”
