Psalm 29

A psalm by David.

Give to Yahweh, you heavenly beings.
    Give to Yahweh glory and power.
Give to Yahweh the glory his name deserves.
    Worship Yahweh in his holy splendor.

The voice of Yahweh rolls over the water.
    The El of glory thunders.
        Yahweh shouts over raging water.
The voice of Yahweh is powerful.
    The voice of Yahweh is majestic.
The voice of Yahweh breaks the cedars.
    Yahweh splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
        He makes Lebanon skip along like a calf
            and Mount Sirion like a wild ox.
The voice of Yahweh strikes with flashes of lightning.
The voice of Yahweh makes the wilderness tremble.
    Yahweh makes the wilderness of Kadesh tremble.
The voice of Yahweh splits the oaks[a]
    and strips the trees of the forests bare.
        Everyone in his temple is saying, “Glory!”

10 Yahweh sat enthroned over the flood.
    Yahweh sits enthroned as Melek forever.
11 Yahweh will give power to his people.
    Yahweh will bless his people with peace.
