Psalms 47:1-9

Psalm 47

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!
