Psalm 47

God Is King of All the Earth

For the choir director. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.

O clap your hands, all peoples;
Make a loud shout to God with the sound of a shout of joy.
For Yahweh Most High is fearsome,
A great King over all the earth.
He subdues peoples under us
And nations under our feet.
He chooses our inheritance for us,
The pride of Jacob whom He loves. Selah.

God has ascended with a loud shout,
Yahweh, with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
Sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;
Sing praises with a skillful psalm.
God reigns over the nations,
God sits on His holy throne.
The nobles of the peoples have assembled themselves with the people of the God of Abraham,
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
He is highly exalted.
