the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.
Comments: A simple psalm that lauds the Lord as ruler
over all things [v.1,2]. He showed His power in bringing Israel
into being [v.3,4] and so in heaven He is seated on His throne
as supreme ruler [v.5-7], the One ruling over all other rulers
Applaud the Lord for His greatness as Lord over all the earth
your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.
the Lord Most High is awesome,
the great King over all the earth.
He chose, delivered, and saved Israel
subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.
chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.
The Lord takes His throne amidst noisy praise
has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
So join in and praise the King of the whole earth….
praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise.
…. realising He reigns above all who are subject to Him
reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.
nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.
Thoughts: A psalm that gives as the real perspective
of how things are – God is sovereign Lord over all things, including
all that happens on earth.]
