Luke 1:69 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments

69. Raised up a horn of salvation This image of his Church is taken from nature, after the simplicity of primitive times. A horn is the strength, power, and beauty of the animal that wears it; and so it became an image of power, both in the ancient classic writers and in the Old Testament. So Psa 132:17: “I will make the horn of David to bud.” From signifying power as a quality, the word is made to signify a power, kingdom, or king.

Rev 17:12: “The ten horns thou sawest are ten kings.”

Jer 48:25: “The horn of Moab is cut off.” So here it is applied to the Messiah about to be born.
