Psalm 47Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
God Our King
For the choir director. A psalm of the sons of Korah.
1 Clap your hands, all you peoples;
shout to God with a jubilant cry.
2 For Yahweh, the Most High, is awe-inspiring,
a great King over all the earth.
3 He subdues peoples under us
and nations under our feet.
4 He chooses for us our inheritance—
the pride of Jacob, whom He loves.Selah
5 God ascends among shouts of joy,
the Lord, among the sound of trumpets.
6 Sing praise to God, sing praise;
sing praise to our King, sing praise!
7 Sing a song of wisdom,
for God is King of all the earth.
8 God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on His holy throne.
9 The nobles of the peoples have assembled
with the people of the God of Abraham.
For the leaders of the earth belong to God;
He is greatly exalted.
