47:5 He chooseth our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob whom He loveth. Selah

47:6 God is gone up amidst shouting, the Lord amidst the sound of the horn.

47:7 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

47:8 For God is the King of all the earth; sing ye praises in a skilful song.

47:9 God reigneth over the nations; God sitteth upon His holy throne.

47:10 The princes of the peoples are gathered together, the people of the God of Abraham; for unto God belong the shields of the earth; He is greatly exalted.
