Psalm 47

God the King of the Earth.

For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1O clap your hands, all peoples;
Shout to God with the voice of [a]joy.
For the Lord Most High is to be feared,
A great King over all the earth.
He subdues peoples under us
And nations under our feet.
He chooses our inheritance for us,
The glory of Jacob whom He loves. [b]Selah.

God has ascended [c]with a shout,
The Lord, [d]with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
Sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing praises with a [e]skillful psalm.
God reigns over the nations,
God [f]sits on His holy throne.
The [g]princes of the people have assembled themselves as the people of the God of Abraham,
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
He [h]is highly exalted.

Psalm 47

Psalm 47[a]

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

Clap your hands, all you nations;
    shout to God with cries of joy.

For the Lord Most High is awesome,
    the great King over all the earth.
He subdued nations under us,
    peoples under our feet.
He chose our inheritance for us,
    the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.[b]

God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
    the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
    sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;
    sing to him a psalm of praise.

God reigns over the nations;
    God is seated on his holy throne.
The nobles of the nations assemble
    as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings[c] of the earth belong to God;
    he is greatly exalted.
