For the worship leader. A song of the sons of Korah.
1 Clap your hands, all of you; raise your voices joyfully and loudly. Give honor for the True God of the universe; 2 Here’s why: The Eternal, the Most High, is awesome and deserves our great respect. He is the great King over everything in this world. 3 He’s helped us win wars, suppressed our enemies, and made nations bow at our feet. 4 He decides the extent of our inheritance and selects the land where we and our children will live, for we are the pride of Jacob, the ones He loves.
5 The True God ascends the throne acclaimed by shouts of the people. The Eternal is announced by the blast of a trumpet. 6 Sing! Shout! Play instruments! Praise our God and King; sing praises to Him who is worthy. 7 For He is the King of all the earth. Sing praise, all who can. Put words to music, and then sing praises 8 At the feet of the God who sits on His holy throne, ruling over all the nations. 9 All those with influence in this world—princes, kings, and satraps— gather with those who follow Abraham’s God. For these defenders belong to God who reigns over the nations!
47:4Literally, selah, likely a musical direction from a Hebrew root meaning “to lift up”
