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.

诗篇 47

至高的主宰

可拉后裔的诗,交给乐长。

1万民啊,你们要鼓掌,
向上帝高声欢呼!
因为至高者耶和华当受敬畏,
祂是普天下的大君王。
祂使列国降服于我们,
让列邦伏在我们脚下。
祂为我们选定产业,
就是祂所爱的雅各引以为荣的产业。(细拉)

在欢呼声中,上帝登上宝座;
在号角声中,耶和华登上宝座。
要颂赞,颂赞上帝!
要颂赞,颂赞我们的君王!
因为上帝是普天下的君王,
要向祂唱赞美的乐章。
祂坐在圣洁的宝座上治理列国。
列邦的首领聚集在一起,
要做亚伯拉罕之上帝的子民,
因为上帝是主宰天下的君王,
祂至高无上。
