Psalms 47

PSALM 47

The LORD is the Great King Over the Earth

For the director; [2for 3the 4sons 5of Korah 1a psalm].

1All the nations -- clap hands! Shout to God with a voice of exultation! 2For the  lord the highest is dreadful; [2king 1a great] over all the earth. 3He submitted peoples to us, and nations under our feet. 4He chose to us the inheritance for us, the beauty of Jacob whom he loved. 5God ascended in a shout; the  lord with the sound of a trumpet. 6Strum to our God! Strum! Strum to our king! Strum! 7For the king of all the earth is God. Strum expertly! 8God reigns over the nations. God sits upon [2throne 1his holy]. 9Rulers of peoples are brought together with the God of Abraham. For by God the strong ones of the earth [2exceedingly 1were lifted up].
