For the music director; by the Korahites; a psalm.
47:1 All you nations, clap your hands!
Shout out to God in celebration!
47:2 For the sovereign Lord is awe-inspiring;
he is the great king who rules the whole earth!
47:3 He subdued nations beneath us
and countries under our feet.
47:4 He picked out for us a special land
to be a source of pride for Jacob, whom he loves. (Selah)
47:5 God has ascended his throne amid loud shouts;
the Lord has ascended his throne amid the blaring of ram’s horns.
47:6 Sing to God! Sing!
Sing to our king! Sing!
47:7 For God is king of the whole earth!
Sing a well-written song!
47:8 God reigns over the nations!
God sits on his holy throne!
47:9 The nobles of the nations assemble,
along with the people of the God of Abraham,
for God has authority over the rulers of the earth.
He is highly exalted!
