Psalm 29
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Davidic Psalm.

Praise to the Majestic LORD

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 wearing holy attire.

3The voice of the LORD was hearda above the waters;

the God of glory thundered;

the LORD was heardb over many waters.

4The voice of the LORD is powerful;

the voice of the LORD is majestic.

5The voice of the LORD snaps the cedars;c

the LORD snaps the cedars of Lebanon.

6He makes them stagger like a calf,

even Lebanon and Siriond like a young wild ox.

7The voice of the LORD shoots out flashes of fire.

8The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness;

the voice of the LORD shakese the wilderness of Kadesh.

9The voice of the LORD causes deer to give birth,

and strips the forest bare.

In his Temple all of them shout, “Glory!”

10The LORD sat enthroned over the flood,

and the LORD sits as king forever.

11The LORD will give strength to his people;

the LORD will bless his people with peace.
