Psalm 47

47       Praise / Royal (heavenly King) / (Korah)

            God is the Great King Over All the Earth

            2 For the LORD Most High is to be feared,

            A great King over all the earth.

·         “[E]xpressions of pious and devout affections as to some may seem indecent and imprudent ought not to be hastily censured or condemned, much less ridiculed, because, if they come from an upright heart, God will accept the strength of the affection, and excuse the weakness of the expressions of it.” (Henry)

·         Yet we should never forget that godly fear is a part of all true worship. Jehovah is the great and dreadful God.

·         An affliction at God’s hands is better than a joy of our own creation.
