The Voice of God in a Great Storm
A Psalm of David.
1Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.2Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name;
worship the Lord in holy splendor.
3The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord, over mighty waters.4The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.6He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
and Sirion like a young wild ox.
7The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.8The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
9The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl,
and strips the forest bare;
and in his temple all say, “Glory!”
10The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.11May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless his people with peace!
