Notes on Revelation


[blessing of Joseph] "His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh"--Deuteronomy 33:17

"God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn"--Numbers 23:22

"And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation"--1 Samuel 2:1

"The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall be thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed"--1 Samuel 2:10

"The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower"--Psalm 18:2

"All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted"--Psalm 75:10

But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil"--Psalm 92:10

"There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed"--Psalm 132:17

"In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am LORD"--Ezekiel 29:21

"Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David"--Luke 1:68-69

"The horn is an emblem of defensive might and victorious dominion...In view of Ezekiel 29:21, of the predictions concerning the Branch in Isaiah 4:2, Jeremiah 23:5; 33:15: Zechariah 3:8; 6:12, and of the fifteenth Beracha of the Shemone-Esre (the daily Jewish prayer consisting of eighteen benedictions): 'make the branch of David Thy servant to shoot forth speedily, and let his horn rise high by virtue of Thy salvation,'--it is hardly to be doubted that the poet attached a Messianic meaning to this promise. With reference to our Psalm (132), Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, charges the supplicatory beracha of his nation (Luke 1:68-70) into a praiseful one, joyfully anticipating the fulfilment that is at hand in Jesus."
