Father God, bless all those who listen to Your still voice this day. Let this touch someone’s heart in knowing that You are their all and all. You are the King of our rejoicing that is a gift to many in Jesus Precious Name Amen.

The title tells us both the authors and the audience of the psalm: To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. Some believe that the Chief Musician is the LORD God Himself, and others suppose him to be a leader of choirs or musicians in David’s time, such as Heman the singer or Asaph. (It reads in 1 Chronicles 6:33, Here are the men who served, together with their sons: From the Kohathites: Heman, the musician, the son of Joel, the son of Samuel) (It reads in 1 Chronicles 16:5-7;, Asaph was the chief, and next to him in rank were Zechariah, then Jaaziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Mattithiah, Eliab, Benaiah, Obed-Edom and Jeiel. They were to play the lyres and harps, Asaph was to sound the cymbals, and Benaiah and Jahaziel the priests were to blow the trumpets regularly before the ark of the covenant of God. That day David first appointed Asaph and his associates to give praise to the Lord in this manner:) and (It reads in 1 Chronicles 25:6; All these men were under the supervision of their father for the music of the temple of the Lord, with cymbals, lyres and harps, for the ministry at the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun and Heman were under the supervision of the king.) Korah was a descendant of Levi (Exodus 6:16-24; All these men were under the supervision of their father for the music of the temple of the Lord, with cymbals, lyres and harps, for the ministry at the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun and Heman were under the supervision of the king.) Therefore, the sons of Korah were Levites. Most assume that the specific sons of Korah addressed here and in the titles of ten other psalms were Levitical singers in the tabernacle/temple ceremonies, and perhaps they were performers of the psalm rather than the authors of it. Ascension of the Messiah to His throne and celebrates His reign over the whole earth. “In later Jewish usage this Psalm was utilized as part of the New Years’ service.”
This is a wonderful Psalm 47 celebrating a great victory of a great King. Perhaps it was occasioned by the victory of a king such as Jehoshaphat (As it reads in 2 Chronicles 20:15-23; He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’” Jehoshaphat bowed down with his face to the ground, and all the people of Judah and Jerusalem fell down in worship before the Lord. Then some Levites from the Kohathites and Korahites stood up and praised the Lord, the God of Israel, with a very loud voice. Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.” After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever.” As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. The Ammonites and Moabites rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them. After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another.), but there is no doubt that it prophetically has in mind the this is a hymn that celebrates God’s reign as king over the earth. The psalm also portrays a procession for the purpose of celebrating God’s kingship. This is most evident in the declaration that God has “gone up” with shouts and trumpet sound and now sits enthroned over the nations. Universal rejoicing for God’s universal reign”.
It reads in Psalm 47:1-9.
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.
Clap your hands, all you nations, shout to God with cries of joy. For the Lord Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth. He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet. He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. God has ascended amid shouts of joy, the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne. The nobles of the nation’s assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.

“Let’s Pray”
Father God, I thank You that You are the only King over my life. I thank You and praise You for the truth of Your Word. I especially thank You for the joy music, being able to clap and sing. I believe that my heart may be completely Yours so that I may be increasingly conformed into the image and likeness of Jesus. I thank You for all those who rejoice in You, and we can sing and play instruments as we all share in Your praise and worship. Celebrating You, thanking You, loving You, praising You and giving You all the glory for You in Jesus Precious Name Amen.

“Power Verse’s”
The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud, and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God.
2 Chronicles 5:13-14
