Psalms Chapter 47

1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.) O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

2 For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.

4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.

8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

9 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.

Cee: Yes,another word could've been used. Back when The Word was written the Word terrible was correct for them because they understood what it meant, today not quite the same. Fearful or dreadful can be used. They come from The same Hebrew word. Revelation6:8 some say dale or gray horse, but in The Greek it's green horse. They never heard of a green horse. So they used pale or gray.

Cee; Read Job 23:8-17. Job is afraid of God, Job knows what is happening to him is caused by God. Psalms 47:2 is telling you God is "terrible." Why do you request another word? His word is living and powerful. Those who do not believe Him will perish.
