Psalm 47

For the choir director; a psalm by Korah’s descendants.

Clap your hands, all you people.
    Shout to Elohim with a loud, joyful song.
We must fear Yahweh, Elyon.
    He is the great Melek of the whole earth.
He brings people under our authority
    and puts nations under our feet.
He chooses our inheritance for us,
    the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. Selah

Elohim has gone up with a joyful shout.
    Yahweh has gone up with the sound of a ram’s horn.
Make music to praise Elohim.
    Play music for him!
    Make music to praise our Melek.
        Play music for him!
Elohim is the Melek of the whole earth.
    Make your best music for him!
Elohim rules the nations.
    Elohim sits upon his holy throne.

The influential people from the nations gather together
    as the people of the Elohim of Abraham.
    The rulers of the earth belong to Elohim.
    He rules everything.
