Psalm 29

English Standard Version

A Psalm of David. Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,[1] ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. (1Ch 16:28; Ps 68:34; Ps 96:7) Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.[2] (Ex 28:2; 1Ch 16:29; Ps 110:3) The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, over many waters. (Job 37:4; Ps 18:11) The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. (Ps 68:33) The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon. (Jud 9:15; Ps 104:16) He makes Lebanon to skip like a calf, and Sirion like a young wild ox. (Nu 23:22; De 3:9; Ps 114:4; Ps 114:6) The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire. The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. (Nu 13:26) The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth[3] and strips the forests bare, and in his temple all cry, “Glory!” (Job 39:1) 10 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. (Ge 6:17; Ps 10:16) 11 May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless[4] his people with peace! (Ps 68:35; Isa 40:29; Php 4:7)
