Psalm 47

Clap your hands, all you peoples;
     shout to God with a cry of joy.
For the LORD Most High is to be feared;
     he is the great King over all the earth.
He subdues the peoples under us,
     and the nations under our feet.
He chooses our inheritance for us,
     the pride of Jacob whom he loves.
God has gone up with a shout,
     the LORD with the sound of the ram's-horn.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
     sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is King of all the earth;
     sing praises with all your skill.
God reigns over the nations;
     God sits upon his holy throne.
The nobles of the peoples have gathered together
     with the people of the God of Abraham.
The rulers of the earth belong to God,
     and he is highly exalted.
