Psalm 68:6 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
The joyous prospect of the conversion of heathen, expressed in the same words as in Psalm 67:5, here receives as its foundation a joyous event of the present time: the earth has just yielded its fruit (cf. Psalm 85:13), the fruit that had been sown and hoped for. This increase of corn and fruits is a blessing and an earnest of further blessing, by virtue of which (Jeremiah 33:9; Isaiah 60:3; cf. on the contrary Joel 2:17) it shall come to pass that all peoples unto the uttermost bounds of the earth shall reverence the God of Israel. For it is the way of God, that all the good that He manifests towards Israel shall be for the well-being of mankind.

Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in;
Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in affliction and in irons,
