A psalm written for the choir director by one of the descendants of Korah
1 You people all over the world, clap your hands for joy!
Shout joyfully to praise God!
2 Yahweh, who is much greater than any other god, is awesome;
he is the king who rules over all the world!
3 He enabled us to defeat the armies of the people-groups that lived in Canaan.
4 He chose for us this land where we now live;
we Israeli people [MTY], whom he loves, are proud that we own this land.
(Think about that!)
5 God has gone up into his temple.
The people shouted joyfully and blew trumpets as Yahweh went up.
6 Sing songs to praise our God!
Sing to praise him [DOU]!
Sing to God, our king!
7 God is the one who rules over everything in the world;
sing a psalm to him!
8 God sits on his sacred throne
as he rules over the people of all ethnic groups.
9 The rulers of those people-groups gather as God's people, the people descended from Abraham, do.
But God has more power than the weapons/shields of all the kings on the earth;
◄he is greatly honored/people honor him► everywhere.
