“Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people; help me when you save them, that I may look upon the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that I may glory with your inheritance” (Psalm 106:4-5, ESV).
Psalm 106 begins with praise to God for His redeeming love (vv.1-2) and a blessing for the righteous (v.3), then turns to recall God’s patience and mercy towards His people (v.6ff). At the bridge stands these verses which turn from the community to the personal angle. The psalmist prays to be included in God’s deliverance. He, too, wants to see and glory in the redemptive grace of God.
May the Lord look kindly upon us, and lift us up in His grace. God’s victory is sure, and certain is the vindication of His people. Let us draw near to Him at all times, and hope in the deliverance that He will bring at the last day, when every evil power will be destroyed and every tear wiped away.
