1 Clap your hands, all you nations; ¶ shout to God with cries of joy.
2 For the LORD Most High is awesome, ¶ the great King over all the earth.
3 He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet.
4 He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. [^1]
5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy, ¶ the LORD amid the sounding of trumpets.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise.
8 God reigns over the nations; ¶ God is seated on his holy throne.
9 The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, ¶ for the kings [^2] of the earth belong to God; ¶ he is greatly exalted.
