Psalm 47:1-9

  • God the King over all the earth

    • ‘Jehovah is awe-inspiring’ (2)

    • Sing praises to God (6, 7)

To the director. Of the sons of Korʹah.+ A melody. 47  All you peoples, clap your hands. Shout in triumph to God with joyful cries.   For Jehovah the Most High is awe-inspiring;+He is the great King over all the earth.+   He subdues peoples under us;He puts nations under our feet.+   He chooses our inheritance for us,+The pride of Jacob, whom he loves.+ (Selah)   God has ascended amid joyful shouting;Jehovah, amid the sound of the horn.*   Sing praises* to God, sing praises. Sing praises to our King, sing praises.   For God is King of all the earth;+Sing praises, and show insight.   God has become King over the nations.+ God sits on his holy throne.   The leaders of the peoples have gathered togetherWith the people of the God of Abraham. For the rulers* of the earth belong to God. He is highly exalted.+
