Psalm 47 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Psalm 47

The King’s Empire

For the choir director. By the Sons of Korah. A psalm.

Praise the Great King of All the Earth!

All you peoples, clap your hands!
Shout to God! Sing a loud song!

Yes, the Lord Most High is awesome.
He is the great King over all the earth!
He subdues peoples under us
and nations under our feet.
He chooses our inheritance for us.
It is the pride of Jacob, whom he loves. Interlude
God has ascended with a joyful shout.
The Lord goes up with the sound of the ram’s horn.

Make music for God! Make music!
Make music for our King! Make music!
For God is the King of all the earth.
Make music for him with a wise song.

God reigns as king over the nations.
God is seated on his holy throne.
The nobles of the peoples come together
    as the people of the God of Abraham.
Yes, the shields of the earth[a] belong to God.
He is greatly exalted.


  1. Psalm 47:9 Or, less literally, the rulers of the earth
