Psalm 47 For the director of music. A psalm of the Sons of Korah. 47 1Clap your hands, all you nations. Shout to God with cries of joy. 2How wonderful is the Lord Most High! He is the great King over the whole earth. 3He brought nations under our control. He made them fall under us. 4He chose our land for us. The people of Jacob are proud of their land, and God loves them.Selah 5God went up to his throne while his people were shouting with joy. The Lord went up while trumpets were playing. 6Sing praises to God. Sing praises. Sing praises to our King. Sing praises. 7God is the King of the whole earth. Sing a psalm of praise to him. 8God rules over the nations. He is seated on his holy throne. 9The nobles of the nations come together. They are now part of the people of the God of Abraham. The kings of the earth belong to God. He is greatly honored.
