Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup.
The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; The God of glory thunders, The LORD is over many waters.
The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.
May our God come and not keep silence; Fire devours before Him, And it is very tempestuous around Him.
The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook.
