To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.
A. 1 O clap your hands, all ye people;
shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
B. 2 For the LORD most high is terrible;
he is a great King over all the earth.
C. 3 He shall subdue the people under us,
and the nations under our feet.
4 He shall choose our inheritance for us,
the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
A’. 5 God is gone up with a shout,
the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
B’. 6 Sing praises to God, sing praises:
sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth:
sing ye praises with understanding.
C’. 8 God reigneth over the heathen:
God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
9 The princes of the people are gathered together,
even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
