Psalm 47

God's Rule over the Nations

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.

1Clap your hands, all peoples!

Shout to God with loud songs of joy!

2For the Lord, the Most High, is terrible,

a great king over all the earth.

3He subdued peoples under us,

and nations under our feet.

4He chose our heritage for us,

the pride of Jacob whom he loves.   Selah

5God has gone up with a shout,

the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

6Sing praises to God, sing praises!

Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

7For God is the king of all the earth;

sing praises with a psalm!a

8God reigns over the nations;

God sits on his holy throne.

9The 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!
