In the King James version
the word - clapping - does not appear at all.

References to clapping seem to be both good and bad. The first example, for the word 'clapeth' carries negative conotations....

The word - clappeth - appears once
  • Job 34:37 For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clapeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.


The word - clapped - appears twice
  1. 2 Kings 11:12 And he brought forth the king's son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him, and they claped their hands, and said, God save the king.
  2. Ezekiel 25:6 For thus saith the Lod GOD; Because thou hast clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all thy despite against the land of Israel.



The word - clap - appears six times. The first one being again a negaitve thing.... it seems to have been a way the people of the time showed displeasure.... But the second one uses the word positively and shows that it is an affirmatory act.
  1. Job 27:23 Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.
  2. Psalm 47:1 O clap your hands, all ye people, shout unto God with the voice of triumph.

So, the Second Book of Kings has the first use of the character-string "clap".
