There will come to be plenty of grain on the earth; on the top of the mountains there will be an overflow.—Ps. 72:16.
Since grain is not ordinarily produced on mountaintops, these words emphasize how productive the earth will become. Just think! No more food shortages, no one undernourished, nobody starving! All will then enjoy “a banquet of well-oiled dishes.” (Isa. 25:6-8; 35:1, 2) To whom will credit go for all these blessings? Primarily to the Eternal King and Universal Ruler, Jehovah God. Psalm 72:17-19 states: “Let his name [that of the King Jesus Christ] prove to be to time indefinite; before the sun let his name have increase, and by means of him let them bless themselves; let all nations pronounce him happy. Blessed be Jehovah God, Israel’s God, who alone is doing wonderful works. And blessed be his glorious name to time indefinite, and let his glory fill the whole earth. Amen and Amen.” w10 8/15 4:19, 20
