Psalm 47 MSG/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Applause, everyone. Bravo, bravissimo! Shout God-songs at the top of your lungs! 1 Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy.
2 God Most High is stunning, astride land and ocean. 2 How awesome is the LORD Most High, the great King over all the earth!
3 He crushes hostile people, puts nations at our feet. 3 He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet.
4 He set us at the head of the line, prize-winning Jacob, his favorite. 4 He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. "Selah"
5 Loud cheers as God climbs the mountain, a ram's horn blast at the summit. 5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy, the LORD amid the sounding of trumpets.
6 Sing songs to God, sing out! Sing to our King, sing praise! 6 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 He's Lord over earth, so sing your best songs to God. 7 For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise.
8 God is Lord of godless nations - sovereign, he's King of the mountain. 8 God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne.
9 Princes from all over are gathered, people of Abraham's God. The powers of earth are God's - he soars over all. 9 The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.
