Psalm 47


God Is King over All the Earth



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A PSALM OF THE SONS OF KORAH. 


      1 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!
