The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BiblePsalms 47:5
God is gone up with a shout…
That is, the Son of God, who
is truly and properly God, equal to the Father, having the same
perfections; God manifest in the flesh, the Word that was made flesh,
and dwelt among men on earth; who in the next clause is called "Lord"
or "Jehovah", being the everlasting "I AM", which is, and was, and is
to come; he having done his work on earth he came about, went up from
earth to heaven in human nature, really, locally, and visibly, in the
sight of his apostles, attended by angels, and with their shouts and
acclamations, which are here meant;
the Lord with the sound of the trumpet;
which circumstance, though not
related in the account of Christ's ascension in the New Testament, yet
inasmuch as the angels say he shall descend in like manner as he
ascended, and that it is certain he will descend with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and the trump of God; so that if his ascent was
as his descent will be, it must be then with a shout, and the sound of
a trumpet, (Acts 1:10) (1 Thessalonians 4:16) . This text is applied to the Messiah by
the ancient Jewish writers F4.
