For the music director; by the Korahites; a psalm.
1All you nations, clap your hands!
Shout out to God in celebration!
2For the sovereign Lord is awe-inspiring;
he is the great king who rules the whole earth!
3He subdued nations beneath us
and countries under our feet.
4He picked out for us a special land
to be a source of pride for Jacob, whom he loves. (Selah)
5God has ascended his throne amid loud shouts;
the Lord has ascended his throne amid the blaring of ram’s horns.
6Sing to God! Sing!
Sing to our king! Sing!
7For God is king of the whole earth!
Sing a well-written song!
8God reigns over the nations!
God sits on his holy throne!
9The nobles of the nations assemble,
along with the people of the God of Abraham,
for God has authority over the rulers of the earth.
He is highly exalted!
