Read Psalm 9 at Bible Gateway.
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You;
For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psa 9:10
God’s name and titles reveal His character and nature! That is why we are paying attention to them.
All through this Psalm, the Hebrew word for Gentiles is translated, “the nations.” The Hebraic and biblical understanding of “the nations” are those who rebelled at Babel. The Hebraic and biblical understanding of a Gentile is an outsider to the covenant of God. Thus far in the Scriptures, Israel is the one nation God is in covenant with. Israel is the one people out of all the peoples, whose God is YHVH Elohiym, Creator of heaven and earth.
