In Psalm 148, we are told in verse 14 that God raised a Horn for His people.

Tehillim / Psalms 148:14 [MT]

"And He raised [a] Horn for His people" ( וַיָּ֚רֶם קֶ֨רֶן לְעַמּ֡וֹ )

What is the "Horn" (Qeren, קֶ֨רֶן) God raised, and what does It do?

1 Answer 1


Horns are often used in the Bible to symbolize power, strength, authority, and victory.

Deuteronomy 33:16b Let all these rest on the head of Joseph,
on the brow of the prince among his brothers.
17In majesty he is like a firstborn bull;
his horns are the horns of a wild ox.
With them he will gore the nations,
even those at the ends of the earth.

It is the power to conquer.

Psalm 148:14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,
the praise of all his faithful servants

Ultimately, it has been fulfilled in Jesus Christ, God's most faithful servant, and Christianity has spread all over the world.
