Psalm 47

God Our King

For the choir director. A psalm of the sons of Korah.

Clap your hands, all you peoples; w

shout to God with a jubilant cry. x

For * Yahweh, the * Most High, is awe-inspiring,

a great King over all the earth. y

He subdues peoples under us

and nations under our feet. z

He chooses for us our inheritance—

the pride of Jacob, whom He loves. a * Selah

God ascends among shouts of joy,

the Lord, among the sound of trumpets. b

Sing praise to God, sing praise;

sing praise to our King, sing praise! c

Sing a song of wisdom, d

for God is King of all the earth. e

God reigns over the nations;

God is seated on His holy throne. f

The nobles of the peoples have assembled

with the people of the God of Abraham. g

For the leaders h of the earth belong to God;

He is greatly exalted. i
