Psalms 47

Psalm 47

For the leader. Of the Korahites. A psalm.

Clap your hands, all you peoples:
shout to God in ringing cries.
For the  Lord is most high and dread,
a great king over all the earth.

He subdues the peoples under us,
the nations under our feet;
he chooses our heritage for us,
the glory of Jacob whom he loves. (Selah)

God is gone up with a shout,
the  Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praise to our God, sing praises:
sing praise to our king, sing praises.

For king of all earth is he:
praise God in a skilful song.
God is king over all the nations,
God sits on his holy throne.

Princes of nations gather
with the people of Abraham’s God:
for the shields of the earth are God’s;
greatly exalted is he.
