Ascribe to the Lord Glory

A Psalm of David.

29  Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,1

cascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

worship the Lord in dthe splendor of holiness.2

The voice of the Lord is over ethe waters;

the God of glory fthunders,

the Lord, over many waters.

The voice of the Lord is gpowerful;

the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;

the Lord breaks hthe cedars of Lebanon.

He makes Lebanon to iskip like a calf,

and jSirion like a young kwild 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 lKadesh.

The voice of the Lord makes mthe deer give birth3

and strips the forests bare,

and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

10  The Lord sits enthroned over nthe flood;

the Lord sits enthroned oas king forever.

11  May the Lord give pstrength to his people!

May the Lord bless4 his people with qpeace!
