1 Oh clap your hands, all you nations. Shout to God with the voice of triumph!

3 He subdues nations under us, And peoples under our feet.

4 He chooses our inheritance for us, The glory of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

5 God has gone up with a shout, The LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

6 Sing praise to God, sing praises. Sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth. Sing praises with understanding.

8 God reigns over the nations. God sits on his holy throne.

9 The princes of the peoples are gathered together, The people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God. He is greatly exalted! Psalm 48 A Song. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.
