Psalm 47

1 A melody of the sons of Korʹah.
All you peoples, clap your hands. Shout in triumph to God with joyful cries.

2 For Jehovah the Most High is awe-inspiring; He is the great King over all the earth.

3 He subdues peoples under us; He puts nations under our feet.

4 He chooses our inheritance for us, The pride of Jacob, whom he loves.

5 God has ascended amid joyful shouting; Jehovah, amid the sound of the horn.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises. Sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7 For God is King of all the earth; Sing praises, and show insight.

8 God has become King over the nations. God sits on his holy throne.

9 The leaders of the peoples have gathered together With the people of the God of Abraham. For the rulers of the earth belong to God. He is highly exalted.
