All the ends of the earth

Alright prophecy students, it’s that time again.  How well do you know the scriptures?  Can you identify this passage in the Bible based on your knowledge of God’s Word.  No cheating in using a concordance, or internet searches, or even the references in your Bible; just you and your Bible.  Here it is in the ESV:

All the ends of the earth shall remember
and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
shall worship before you.
For kingship belongs to the Lord,
and he rules over the nations.
All the prosperous of the earth eat and worship;
before him shall bow all who go down to the dust,
even the one who could not keep himself alive.
Posterity shall serve him;
it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation;
they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn,
that he has done it.

Given the theme of all nations worshiping the LORD, some of you may be surprised where this is found.  Then again, you may surprise me.

Have fun and stay busy – Luke 19:13

-The Orange Mailman

  1. Did you think I would post the reference so soon? Here it is in the KJV. Perhaps this will spark your imagination.

    All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the kingdom is the LORD’S: and he is the governor among the nations. All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship : all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul. A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation. They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

    I’ll post the reference in a few days if no one guesses.

  2. Okay, here it is. But first, another hint. It’s the psalm that starts out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Isn’t that interesting. The ultimate rejecton psalm ends with a declaration that the LORD will rule, and over a people who want Him to rule over them. Very interesting.
