Psalm 47 Bible in Basic English

God Is the King of All the Earth

47 1  O make a glad noise with your hands, all you peoples; letting your voices go up to God with joy. 2  For the Lord Most High is to be feared; he is a great King over all the earth. 3  He will put down the peoples under us, and the nations under our feet. 4  He will give us our heritage, the glory of Jacob who is dear to him. (Selah.)

5  God has gone up with a glad cry, the Lord with the sound of the horn. 6  Give praises to God, make songs of praise; give praises to our King, make songs of praise. 7  For God is the King of all the earth; make songs of praise with knowledge. 8  God is the ruler over the nations; God is on the high seat of his holy rule. 9  The rulers of the peoples have come together, with the people of the God of Abraham; because the powers of the earth are God's: he is lifted up on high.
