That the universal church will acknowledge and worship the lord from joy of heart, verses 1 to 5, 7; also every thing belonging to the church, verse 6.
Verse 1. god be merciful to us, and bless us, and cause his faces to shine upon us. By the light of the faces of jehovah, or the lord, is understood the Divine truth from the Divine love, and hence intelligence and wisdom, for from Divine truth, or from Divine light in the heavens are all intelligence and wisdom both to angels and men, hence by causing your faces to shine upon us, by lifting up the light of your faces upon us is signified to enlighten in Divine truth, and to gift with intelligence and wisdom. AE 412.
Verses 3, 4. Let the peoples praise you, O god, let all the peoples praise you; O let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you shall judge the peoples in rectitude, and shall lead the nations upon earth. Peoples here manifestly denote those who are in the truths of faith, and nations those who are in the good of charity.
