Can you help with this weekday Mass reading?

I have a problem with this link to the daily readings. I don’t understand why it says “terrible” on Psalm 47:2 :confused:

Psalms 47: 2 - 3, 8 - 10 2 For the LORD, the Most High, is terrible, a great king over all the earth. 3 He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet. 8 God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne. 9 The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted!


“Terrible” here doesn’t mean bad. It mean all powerful and great.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
