Ps 47

Ps. 47 Along with Ps. 93 and 95–99, this psalm can be classified as a kingship psalm. The image of God’s enthronement is at the heart of the psalm. The occasion is a great military victory, and God is King, not only of Israel, but of the universe. This prayer also properly celebrates the ascension and rule of Jesus Christ. Jesus is both King and Warrior (Luke 19:38; 23:38; John 1:49).
