Psalm 47:9 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
47:9 The princes - The Gentiles, who were divided in their principles, and interests, and religions, are now united and gathered together to Christ, laying their scepters at his feet, and jointly owning his worship and service.

And Abraham is also the spiritual father of those who have been circumcised, but only if they have the same kind of faith Abraham had before he was circumcised.
All kings will bow before him, and all nations will serve him.
Yes, our protection comes from the LORD, and he, the Holy One of Israel, has given us our king.
For you, O LORD, are supreme over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.
when multitudes gather together and kingdoms come to worship the LORD.
The LORD, the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel, says to the one who is despised and rejected by the nations, to the one who is the servant of rulers: "Kings will stand at attention when you pass by. Princes will also bow low because of the LORD, the faithful one, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you."
