God Is King Over All The Earth (Psalm 47:1-9)Phillip Stuckey, September 1, 2019
Part of the Exposition of the Psalms series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
The forty-seventh psalm is another psalm that is attributed to the sons of Korah. Again, there are no historical clues as to when this psalm may have been composed so we cannot tie it to any particular period in Israel’s history. It is a short psalm of praise to God for His sovereignty and His power over all the earth and for the victories, He has brought for His people. Let us stop and consider the awesomeness of our God as we look at Psalm 47.

Psalm 47 (Listen)
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.
47:1 Clap your hands, all peoples!
Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
2 For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared,
a great king over all the earth.
3 He subdued peoples under us,
and nations under our feet.
4 He chose our heritage for us,
the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah
5 God has gone up with a shout,
the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing praises with a psalm!
8 God reigns over the nations;
God sits on his holy throne.
9 The princes of the peoples gather
as the people of the God of Abraham.
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
he is highly exalted!
