There is a double missionary call to the praise of God in the Psalms. In some Psalms Israel is urged to proclaim Yahweh's praise among the nations. In others the nations are encouraged to share in Israel's praise of God. Ps. 117 is considered to be one of the latter. Regarding the use of this hymn in the New Testament, two passages are considered and their significance for mission indicated.
