Psalm 47
New American Bible Revised Edition

Psalm 47*

The Ruler of All the Nations

1For the leader. A psalm of the Korahites.


2All you peoples, clap your hands;

shout to God with joyful cries.a

3For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared,

the great king over all the earth,b

4Who made people subject to us,

nations under our feet,c

5*Who chose our heritage for us,

the glory of Jacob, whom he loves.d



6*God has gone up with a shout;

the Lord, amid trumpet blasts.e

7Sing praise to God, sing praise;

sing praise to our king, sing praise.


8For God is king over all the earth;f

sing hymns of praise.

9God rules over the nations;

God sits upon his holy throne.

10The princes of the peoples assemble

with the people of the God of Abraham.

For the shields of the earth belong to God,

highly exalted.g
