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!
