God the King of the Earth.

For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

47 O (A)clap your hands, all peoples;
(B)Shout to God with the voice of [a]joy.
For the Lord Most High is to be (C)feared,
A (D)great King over all the earth.
He (E)subdues peoples under us
And nations under our feet.
He chooses our (F)inheritance for us,
The (G)glory of Jacob whom He loves. [b]Selah.

God has (H)ascended [c]with a shout,
The Lord, [d]with the (I)sound of a trumpet.
(J)Sing praises to God, sing praises;
Sing praises to (K)our King, sing praises.
For God is the (L)King of all the earth;
Sing praises (M)with a [e]skillful psalm.
God (N)reigns over the nations,
God [f]sits on (O)His holy throne.
The [g](P)princes of the people have assembled themselves as the (Q)people of the God of Abraham,
For the (R)shields of the earth belong to God;
He [h]is (S)highly exalted.
