Psalms of David

Psalm 47

To the Chief Musician.
A Psalm of the sons of Korah.


God Is King Over All the Earth


O clap your hands, all you people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.


For the LORD most high is awesome; he is a great King over all the earth.


He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.


He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved.




God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.


Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.


For God is the King of all the earth: sing you praises with understanding.


God reigns over the nations: God sits upon the throne of his holiness.


The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
