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.

Salme 47

Kongen over alle konger

1Til korlederen: En sang af Koras slægt.

Klap i hænderne af glæde, alle folkeslag!
    Bryd ud i jubelråb for vor Gud!
For Herren er Gud over alle guder,
    den mægtigste hersker over hele jorden.
Han undertvinger folkeslagene,
    og lægger vore fjender for vore fødder.
Han udvalgte et land, som han gav os.
    Hans elskede folk, Israel, er stolt over at eje det.
Gud stiger op på sin trone under jubelråb
    til fanfarer fra vædderhornet.
Lovsyng Gud, ja syng!
    Lovsyng Kongen, ja syng!
For Gud er Konge over hele jorden,
    pris ham med sang!
Han sidder på sin hellige trone,
    hvorfra han regerer over alle folkeslag.
10 Lad nationernes fyrster samles
    og prise ham sammen med Abrahams Guds folk.
Han har autoritet over alle jordens fyrster.
    Han er større end alt og alle.
