Book II
God the King of the Earth
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
[1]  OH clap your hands, all ye peoples;
Shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
[2]  For Jehovah 1 Most High is terrible;
He is a great King over all the earth.
[3]  He subdueth peoples under us,
And nations under our feet.
[4]  He chooseth our inheritance for us,
The glory of Jacob whom he loved. 2  [Selah
[5]  God is gone up with a shout,
Jehovah with the sound of a trumpet.
[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 3 understanding.
[8]  God reigneth over the nations:
God sitteth upon his holy throne.
[9]  The princes of the peoples are gathered together
To 4 be the people of the God of Abraham;
For the shields of the earth belong unto God:
He is greatly exalted.
