Tehillim - Psalms 106:4
זׇכְרֵ֣נִי יי בִּרְצ֣וֹן עַמֶּ֑ךָ פׇּ֝קְדֵ֗נִי בִּישׁוּעָתֶֽךָ׃
G-d, remember ME too when You are pleased with Your people and bring about the Redemption; be mindful of me when Your salvation arrives.
My personal interpretation of this verse is that the entire Jewish people is one whole, one soul. In the time of the Messiah, under his leadership, the whole Jewish nation will be motivated to live the Torah fully in the right way, with all its commandments and details.
The entire Jewish people is therefore saved as one soul. So who is the "me" in the verse? I interpret the verse for myself, and for all pious Noahides, as a prayer to G-d. Remember me, remember us, in the time of Redemption.
Rejoice, O nations [o Noahides], with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries and will forgive his land, and his people (Deut. 32:43).
I will rejoice at the sight of the glory and prosperity You will bring upon Your people.
We know that we will have a share in the World to Come, please give us also a share in the Time of the Messiah to rejoice with Your people.
