To the director. Of the sons of Korʹah.+ A melody.
47 All you peoples, clap your hands.
Shout in triumph to God with joyful cries.
2 For Jehovah the Most High is awe-inspiring;+
He is the great King over all the earth.+
3 He subdues peoples under us;
He puts nations under our feet.+
4 He chooses our inheritance for us,+
The pride of Jacob, whom he loves.+ (Selah)
5 God has ascended amid joyful shouting;
Jehovah, amid the sound of the horn.*
6 Sing praises* to God, sing praises.
Sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is King of all the earth;+
Sing praises, and show insight.
8 God has become King over the nations.+
God sits on his holy throne.
9 The leaders of the peoples have gathered together
With the people of the God of Abraham.
For the rulers* of the earth belong to God.
He is highly exalted.+
