Psalm 47 English Standard Version

God Is the King of All the Earth

47 1  Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! 2  For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth. 3  He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet. 4  He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah

5  God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. 6  Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! 7  For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm![1] 8  God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne. 9  The 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!
