Psalms 47

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.

Oh clap your hands, all you nations.

Shout to God with the voice of triumph!

2 For Yahweh Most High is awesome.

He is a great King over all the earth.

3 He subdues nations under us,

and peoples under our feet.

4 He chooses our inheritance for us,

the glory of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

5 God has gone up with a shout,

Yahweh with the sound of a trumpet.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises.

Sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth.

Sing praises with understanding.

8 God reigns over the nations.

God sits on his holy throne.

9 The princes of the peoples are gathered together,

the people of the God of Abraham.

For the shields of the earth belong to God.

He is greatly exalted!
