$terms = get_terms( $taxonomy ); //Get all the terms
foreach ($terms as $term) { //Cycle through terms, one at a time
$term_id = $term->term_id; //Define the term ID
$term_link = get_term_link( $term, $taxonomy );

get_terms() accept an array of arguments as second parameter. One of those parameters are include


(integer) An array of term ids to include. Empty returns all.

You already have your selected term ids in an array, so just simply pass them to the include parameter in the array of arguments in get_terms()

$terms =  get_terms( $taxonomy, array( 'include' => $term_id_array ) );

or with short araay syntax (availble since PHP 5.4)

$terms = get_terms( $taxonomy, ['include' => $term_id_array] );
  • How I get them as a list? Can you please show me example code? I am new in this field.

    I don't understand, you need to change $terms = get_terms( $taxonomy ); in your code with my code; $terms = get_terms( $taxonomy, array( 'include' => $term_id_array ) ); where you have already defined $term_id_array as $term_id_array= array(1,2,4,50); Aug 4, 2015 at 9:21
