The Horn

God’s might is symbolized by this Christian emblem. The horn is symbolic of domination, power, triumph, fierceness, strength, wisdom, dignity, prosperity, and glory, as it is the primary means of defense and assault for most animals. The anointing of David as King is symbolized by an oil horn, and the seven horns of the Ram signify the Israelites’ conquest of Jericho (Joshua).
The word is also employed in a number of popular idioms with religious overtones. For example, the phrase ‘horn of plenty’ relates to the Almighty’s generosity, whereas the phrase ‘horn of salvation’ refers to Jesus Christ and is symbolic of a powerful rescuer.
