Psalm 47 for Two Readers


1:  Clap your hands, all peoples!

2:   Shout to God with loud songs of joy!

1:  For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,

2:   a great king over all the earth.

1:  He subdued peoples under us,

2:    and nations under our feet.

1:  He chose our heritage for us,

2:   the pride of Jacob whom he loves.

BOTH: God has gone up with a shout!

2:  the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

1:  Sing praises to God, sing praises!

2:   Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

1:  For God is the King of all the earth;

2:  sing praises with a psalm!

1:   God reigns over the nations;

2:     God sits on his holy throne.

1:  The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham.

2:  For the shields of the earth belong to God;

BOTH:   he is highly exalted!
