Psalms 47

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A PSALM OF THE SONS OF KORAH. Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!

2

For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.

3

He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.

4

He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah

5

God has gone up with a shout, the LORD 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 a psalm!

8

God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne.

9

The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted!
