and nations under our feet.
4 He chooses for us our inheritance,
the pride of Jacob whom he loves.
5 God has gone up with a shout,
Yahweh with the sound of a trumpet.

Sing praises to our king, sing praises.

Sing praises with understanding.[d]

God sits on his holy throne.

with the people of Abraham’s God.
