For the [music] director. Of the sons of Korah. A psalm.

God Is King over All the Earth

1 All [you] peoples, clap [your] hands. Shout to God with a voice of rejoicing.
2 For Yahweh Most High [is] awesome, a great king over all the earth.
3 He subdues peoples under us and nations under our feet.
4 He chooses for us our inheritance, the pride of Jacob whom he loves.
5 God has gone up with a shout, Yahweh with [the] sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing praises [to] God, sing praises. Sing praises to our king, sing praises.
7 For God [is] king of all the earth. Sing praises with understanding.
8 God reigns over nations; God sits on his holy throne.
9 [The] princes of [the] peoples are gathered together [with] the people of Abraham's God. For [the] shields of [the] earth belong to God. He is very exalted.
