Psalm 47
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

To the Director: A song by the Sons of Korah.

The Ruler over the Nations

1Clap your hands, all you peoples!

Shout to God with a loud cry of joy!

2For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,

a great king over all the earth.

3He subdued peoples under us,

and nations under our feet.

4He chose our inheritance for us,

even the pride of Jacob whom he loved.


5God has ascended on high with a shout,

the LORD has ascendeda with the blast of a trumpet.

6Sing songs to God!

Sing songs!

Sing songs to our King!

Sing songs!

7Indeed, God is king over all the earth;

sing a song of praise.

8God is king over the nations;

God is seated on his holy throne.

9The nobles among the nations

have joined the people of the God of Abraham.

For the shields of the earth belong to God;

he is greatly exalted.
