Psalms 29

A psalm of David.

1Ascribe to the  Lord, you heavenly beings,
ascribe to the  Lord glory and strength.
2Ascribe to the  Lord the glory due to his name;
worship the  Lord in the splendour of his
Or Lord with the splendour of
holiness.
3The voice of the  Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the  Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
4The voice of the  Lord is powerful;
the voice of the  Lord is majestic.
5The voice of the  Lord breaks the cedars;
the  Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
Sirion
That is, Mount Hermon
like a young wild ox.
7The voice of the  Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.
8The voice of the  Lord shakes the desert;
the  Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9The voice of the  Lord twists the oaks
Or Lord makes the deer give birth

and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, ‘Glory!’
10The  Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the  Lord is enthroned as King for ever.
11The  Lord gives strength to his people;
the  Lord blesses his people with peace.
