Psalms 29

Psalm 29

The Voice of the Lord

A psalm of David.

1Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

2Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

worship the Lord

in the splendor of his holiness.

3The voice of the Lord is above the waters.

The God of glory thunders —

the Lord, above the vast water,

4the voice of the Lord in power,

the voice of the Lord in splendor.

5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;

the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.

6He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,

and Sirion, like a young wild ox.

7The voice of the Lord flashes flames of fire.

8The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;

the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth

and strips the woodlands bare.

In his temple all cry, “Glory!”

10The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;

the Lord sits enthroned, King forever.

11The Lord gives his people strength;

the Lord blesses his people with peace.
