Psalm 117

  O Praise the Lord,all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the lord endureth for ever.Praise ye the Lord.

 

 Psalm 117 well know as the shortest chapter in the Bible, this little psalm contains a great message. Though some have denied it an independent existence,attaching it to Psalm 116,Psalm 117 has all three elements of the hymn of praise: a call to praise (v1),a cause for praise (v2a,b),and a conclusion,which in this case, is a simple praise ye the Lord (v2c). The fact that the nations and people are addressed in verse 1 makes this psalm the only on in the Psalter addressed in its entirety to the Gentile world. Its evangelistic mood was still baffling to some of Paul's readers. This is one of four passages that Paul quotes from the Old testament,in Romans 15, to prove that God is interested in saving Gentiles.
