1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.)
O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto Elohim with the voice of triumph.
2 For Yahweh most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
5 Elohim is gone up with a shout, Yahweh with the sound of a trumpet.
6 Sing praises to Elohim, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
7 For Elohim is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
To worship in holiness, and to praise with understanding, comprise the highest destiny and joy to which man can aspire. The whole Scripture is necessary to teach both the holiness and the understanding, but in the developing andnexpressing of them in the form and spirit of worship and praise, the Psalms are pre-eminent.
And in the heart of every Psalm, lifting it out of the realm of the ideal and impossible into the practical and attainable, we see that one man in whom all the strength and salvation of God centered:
"In the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do Thy will, O my God."
Bro Growcott - the Psalms
8 Elohim reigneth over the heathen: Elohim sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
9 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the Elohim of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto Elohim: he is greatly exalted.
