Psalms 29

A psalm of David.

1 Ascribe to the Lord, O mighty ones,
     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(1) 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 skip like a calf,
     Sirion(2) 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(3)
     and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, "Glory!"
10 The Lord sits(4) 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.
