Treasury of Scripture

Which you have prepared before the face of all people;

Psalm 96:1-3,10-13
O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth…

Psalm 97:6-8
The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory…

Psalm 98:2,3
The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen…









(31) Before the face of all people.--Literally, of all peoples. The word expresses the universality of the salvation which the next verse contemplates in its application to the two great divisions of the human family.

Verses 31, 32. - Before the face of all people; a Light to lighten the Gentiles; more accurately rendered, all peoples. Men like Isaiah, who lived several centuries before the nativity, with their glorious farreaching prophecies, such as Isaiah 52:10, were far in advance of the narrow, selfish Jewish schools of the age of Jesus Christ. It was, perhaps, the hardest lesson the apostles and first teachers of the faith had to master - this full, free admission of the vast Gentile world into the kingdom of their God. Simeon, in his song, however, distinctly repeats the broad, generous sayings of the older prophets.
