Clasp Your Hands, Psalm 47

Jim Jordan sees the translation “Clap your Hands” in Psalm 47  better understood as “Clasp your Hands.” That is, the idea of Psalm 47 is the idea of the nations (Jews and Gentiles) holding hands before God’s throne. Still, the symbolism of clapping our hands is an appropriate display when singing that Psalm (see Psalm 47 in the Genevan Psalter).
