1 And in that day thou shalt say, O Yahweh, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
2 Behold, El is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for Yah, Yahweh is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
4 And in that day [Yom Hahu] shall ye say, Praise [Hodu] Yahweh, call upon his name [Shmo], declare His doings among the people, make mention that his name [Shmo] is exalted.
Glory to the Deity in the highest heavens, over the earth peace, and goodwill among men, is now the order of the day. The glassy sea of nations is now irradiated with the glory of Yahweh, which shines through its translucent waters to its utmost bounds and lowest depths.
Its nations are now "blessed in Abraham and his Seed," having been previously "justified by faith;" and "joined to Yahweh for a people to Him" (Gal. 3:8; Zech. 2:11). The twelve tribes of Jacob are no longer dispersed in the lands of their enemies. Not one of them is left a wanderer among the nations (Deut. 30:4); but all have returned to their possessions and rejoice before Yahweh their Elohim (Lev. 23:40). The nations, now enlightened, also rejoice with them; because their engraftment into their own olive tree has proved to be life from the dead to the world (Deut. 32:43; Rom.11:15).

Jesus and his Brethren "glorified together" (Rom. 8:17), are the conquerors, who, by the Spirit's aid and co-operation, have subdued the world, and possess it as their own.
They are "a multitude which no man can number, clothed with white robes and palms in their hands" (Apoc. 7:9-17). Their square is 144,000. The "palms," the symbol of victory, connect them with the Feast of Tabernacles, in the celebration of which they rejoice, and are glad, as the harps of the Deity. What a glorious orchestra they will be, when established over the nations as their immortal and sovereign rulers, they shall celebrate their triumph in the songs of Moses and the Lamb! In that day...
5 Sing unto Yahweh; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth [b'chol ha'aretz.].
6 Cry out and shout [for joy], thou inhabitant of Zion [Tziyon]: for great is the Holy One of Israel [ gadol is Kadosh Yisroel] in the midst of thee.
