Psalm 47 King James Version

God Is the King of All the Earth

47 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph. 2  For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth. 3  He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. 4  He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

5  God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. 6  Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. 7  For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. 8  God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness. 9  The princes [1] of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
