Christ our Servant Saviour

Psalm 67 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Nations Exhorted to Praise God.
For the choir director; with stringed instruments. A Psalm. A Song.

67 God be gracious to us and bless us,
And cause His face to shine [a]upon us— [b]Selah.
2 That Your way may be known on the earth,
Your salvation among all nations.
3 Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
4 Let the nations be glad and sing for joy;
For You will judge the peoples with uprightness
And guide the nations on the earth. Selah.
5 Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
6 The earth has yielded its produce;
God, our God, blesses us.
7 God blesses us,
[c]That all the ends of the earth may fear Him.

Romans 15:7-13New American Standard Bible (NASB)

7 Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted [a]us to the glory of God. 8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers, 9 and for the Gentiles to glorify God for His mercy; as it is written,

“Therefore I will [b]give praise to You among the Gentiles,
And I will sing to Your name.”
10 Again he says,

“Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people.”
11 And again,

“Praise the Lord all you Gentiles,
And let all the peoples praise Him.”
12 Again Isaiah says,

“There shall come the root of Jesse,
And He who arises to rule over the Gentiles,
In Him shall the Gentiles hope.”
13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
