Psalms 47
For the music leader. A psalm of the Korahites.
1Clap your hands, all you people!
Shout joyfully to God with a joyous shout!
2Because the LORD Most High is awesome,
he is the great king of the whole world.
3He subdues the nations under us,
subdues all people beneath our feet.
4He chooses our inheritance for us:
the heights of Jacob, which he loves. Selah
5God has gone up with a joyous shout—
the LORD with the blast of the ram’s horn.
6Sing praises to God! Sing praises!
Sing praises to our king! Sing praises
7because God is king of the whole world!
Sing praises with a song of instruction!#Or Sing praises with understanding or wisely (cf LXX, Vulg); Heb maskil; see the note at Ps 32.
8God is king over the nations.
God sits on his holy throne.
9The leaders of all people are gathered
with the people of Abraham’s God
because the earth’s guardians belong to God;
God is exalted beyond all.
