Psalms 47

For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

1 Clap your hands, all you nations;
     shout to God with cries of joy.
2 How awesome is the Lord Most High,
     the great King over all the earth!
3 He subdued nations under us,
     peoples under our feet.
4 He chose our inheritance for us,
     the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.
5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
     the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
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 to him a psalm(1) of praise.
8 God reigns over the nations;
     God is seated on his holy throne.
9 The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.
