This song is only 7 verses long, and it includes thanksgiving for what appears to have been a good harvest (verse 6). But the psalm also does what many other passages in the Old Testament do, which is to affirm what the apostles found to be true in the Book of Acts, and what they (especially Paul) proclaim to be true – that God always intended for the Gentiles to be included in His plan for salvation. This evident first in verse 2: “that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations,” and then again in verse 4:
Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for you judge the peoples with equity
and guide the nations upon earth. Selah
