For the Chief Musician; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.
1O clap your hands, all ye peoples; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. 2For the Lord Most High is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth. 3He shall subdue the peoples under us, and the nations under our feet. 4He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah 5God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. 6Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. 7For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. 8God reigneth over the nations: God sitteth upon his holy throne. 9The princes of the peoples are gathered together to be the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God; he is greatly exalted.
