For the leader. Of the Korahites. A psalm.
1 Clap your hands, all you peoples:
shout to God in ringing cries.
2 For the Lord is most high and dread,
a great king over all the earth.
3 He subdues the peoples under us,
the nations under our feet;
4 he chooses our heritage for us,
the glory of Jacob whom he loves.
5 God is gone up with a shout,
the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing praise to our God, sing praises:
sing praise to our king, sing praises.
7 For king of all earth is he:
praise God in a skilful song.
8 God is king over all the nations,
God sits on his holy throne.
9 Princes of nations gather
with the people of Abraham's God:
for the shields of the earth are God's;
greatly exalted is he.
