Psalm 47:  Particularism and universalism. Jahwe is  our king and king of all the earth In  this  article,  Psalm  47  is  considered from  a  text  immanent perspective and particular attention  is given  to  the morphological,  syntactical,  stylistic and  semantic  facets  of the  psalm.  Although  problems  of interpretation experienced in  respect of  Psalm 47 are  the  same as  those for the  so-called enthronement psalms,  this  article  concentrates  mainly  on  those  research problems that are peculiar to this psalm.  Psalm 47 is a hymn comprising of two parallel strophes  (w.  2-6 and 7-10).  The  reason  for the exhortations  to praise  is  the fact that in his deeds  of  salvation  towards  Israel,  Yahweh has also proved himself to  be  the  mighty,  universal  king.  Psalm  47 probably dates from the exilic or post-exilic period.
