Psalm 47:3 Parallel
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

He shall subdue the people under us - Compare Psalm 18:39, note; Psalm 18:47, note. The word rendered "subdue" is that which commonly means" to speak." The idea in the use of this word here is that he has only to speak and it is done (compare Psalm 33:9), or that he could do it by a word. Compare, however, on the use of the word here, Gesenius (Lexicon), on the word - דבר dâbar, 2, Hiphil.

And the nations under our feet - That is, they shall be entirely or effectually subdued. See Psalm 7:5, note; Psalm 44:5, note. As God would enable them to do this, it was an occasion for thankfulness and triumph.

But it is upon our heart to meditate with our beloved readers on the joy of our adorable Lord, as his own personal joy. The
