Psalm 29


A psalm of David.

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

3
The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
4
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6
He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
Sirion[b] like a young wild ox.
7
The voice of the Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.
8
The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9
The voice of the Lord twists the oaks[c]
and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

10
The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord is enthroned as King forever.
11
The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.
— Psalm 29
