Ascribe to the Lord Glory

A Psalm of David.

29 Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,[a]
    (A)ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    worship the Lord in (B)the splendor of holiness.[b]

The voice of the Lord is over (C)the waters;
    the God of glory (D)thunders,
    the Lord, over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is (E)powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
    the Lord breaks (F)the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon to (G)skip like a calf,
    and (H)Sirion like a young (I)wild ox.

The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
    the Lord shakes the wilderness of (J)Kadesh.

The voice of the Lord makes (K)the deer give birth[c]
    and strips the forests bare,
    and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sits enthroned over (L)the flood;
    the Lord sits enthroned (M)as king forever.
11 May the Lord give (N)strength to his people!
    May the Lord bless[d] his people with (O)peace!

Joy Comes with the Morning

A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of (P)the temple.

30 I will (Q)extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up
    and have not let my foes (R)rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I (S)cried to you for help,
    and you have (T)healed me.
O Lord, you have brought up my soul from (U)Sheol;
    you restored me to life from among those who (V)go down to the pit.[e]

Sing praises to the Lord, O you (W)his saints,
    and (X)give thanks to his holy name.[f]
(Y)For his anger is but for a moment,
    and (Z)his favor is for a lifetime.[g]
(AA)Weeping may tarry for the night,
    but (AB)joy comes with the morning.

As for me, I said in my (AC)prosperity,
    “I shall never be (AD)moved.”
By your favor, O Lord,
    you made my (AE)mountain stand strong;
you (AF)hid your face;
    I was (AG)dismayed.

To you, O Lord, I cry,
    and (AH)to the Lord I plead for mercy:
“What profit is there in my death,[h]
    if I go down to the pit?[i]
Will (AI)the dust praise you?
    Will it tell of your faithfulness?
10 (AJ)Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!
    O Lord, be my helper!”

11 You have turned for me my mourning into (AK)dancing;
    you have loosed my sackcloth
    and clothed me with gladness,
12 that my (AL)glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
    O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
