CLAP your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph and songs of joy!
For the Lord Most High excites terror, awe, and dread; He is a great King over all the earth.
He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.
He chose our inheritance for us, the glory and pride of Jacob, whom He loves. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
God has ascended amid shouting, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.
Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises in a skillful psalm and with understanding.
God reigns over the nations; God sits upon His holy throne.
The princes and nobles of the peoples are gathered together, a [united] people for the God of Abraham, for the shields of the earth belong to God; He is highly exalted.
