A Davidic Psalm.

Praise to the Majestic Lord

29 Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings;
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    worship the Lord wearing holy attire.

The voice of the Lord was heard[a] above the waters;
    the God of glory thundered;
        the Lord was heard[b] over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord snaps the cedars;[c]
    the Lord snaps the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes them stagger like a calf,
    even Lebanon and Sirion[d] like a young wild ox.

The voice of the Lord shoots out flashes of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
        the voice of the Lord shakes[e] the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord causes deer to give birth,
    and strips the forest bare.
        In his Temple all of them shout, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sat enthroned over the flood,
    and the Lord sits as king forever.
11 The Lord will give strength to his people;
    the Lord will bless his people with peace.
