When you show favor to your people!
When you deliver them!
Thus I may see the prosperity
Of your chosen ones.
Thus I may rejoice in the gladness
Of your nation.
Thus I may glory in your heritage.”
The psalmist wants to share in the glory of the chosen ones. He asks Yahweh to remember him personally when he thinks of his chosen people. When they are helped, he wants to see prosperity also. He wanted to rejoice in the gladness of Yahweh’s nations. He wanted to glory in the heritage of the chosen ones.
