Psalm 47
NET BibleEnglish Standard Version
1For the music director; by the Korahites; a psalm. All you nations, clap your hands! Shout out to God in celebration! 1Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
2For the sovereign LORD is awe-inspiring; he is the great king who rules the whole earth! 2For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.
3He subdued nations beneath us and countries under our feet. 3He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.
4He picked out for us a special land to be a source of pride for Jacob, whom he loves. (Selah) 4He chose our heritage for us, the pride of 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. 5God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
6Sing to God! Sing! Sing to our king! Sing! 6Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
7For God is king of the whole earth! Sing a well-written song! 7For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm!
8God reigns over the nations! God sits on his holy throne! 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! 9The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted!
