Psalms 47

Psalm 47

The Supreme Ruler

1  [fn] Clap your hands for joy, all peoples! Praise God with loud songs!
2 The Lord, the Most High, is to be feared; he is a great king, ruling over all the world.
3 He gave us victory over the peoples; he made us rule over the nations.
4 He chose for us the land where we live, the proud possession of his people, whom he loves.

5 God goes up to his throne. There are shouts of joy and the blast of trumpets, as the Lord goes up.
6 Sing praise to God; sing praise to our king!
7 God is king over all the world; praise him with songs!

8 God sits on his sacred throne; he rules over the nations.
9 The rulers of the nations assemble with the people [fn] of the God of Abraham. More powerful than all armies is he; he rules supreme.
