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!
