Psalm 29

The Voice of God in a Great Storm

A Psalm of David.

1Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,[a]
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name;
    worship the Lord in holy splendor.

3The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
    the God of glory thunders,
    the Lord, over mighty waters.
4The voice of the Lord is powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
    the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
6He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
    and Sirion like a young wild ox.

7The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
8The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
    the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl,[b]
    and strips the forest bare;
    and in his temple all say, “Glory!”

10The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
    the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
11May the Lord give strength to his people!
    May the Lord bless his people with peace!
