Clap your hands, all you peoples;

shout to God with loud songs of joy.

and nations under our feet.

He chose our heritage for us,

the pride of Jacob whom he loves.Selah

Sing praises to God, sing praises;

sing praises to our King, sing praises.

For God is the king of all the earth;

sing praises with a psalm.

God sits on his holy throne.

The princes of the peoples gather

as the people of the God of Abraham.

For the shields of the earth belong to God;
