Psalms 29

(A psalm by David.)
The Voice of the Lord in a Storm
1 All of you angels
i 29.1 angels: Or “supernatural beings” or “gods.”
in heaven,
honor the glory and power
of the Lord!
2 Honor the wonderful name
of the Lord,
and worship the Lord
most holy and glorious.
j 29.2 most ... glorious: Or “in his holy place” or “and wear your glorious clothes.”

3 The voice of the Lord
echoes over the oceans.
The glorious Lord God
above the roar
of the raging sea,
4 and his voice is mighty
and marvelous.
5 The voice of the Lord
destroys the cedar trees;
the Lord shatters cedars
on Mount Lebanon.
6 God makes Mount Lebanon
skip like a calf
and Mount Hermon
jump like a wild ox.

7 The voice of the Lord
makes lightning flash
8 and the desert tremble.
And because of the Lord,
the desert near Kadesh
shivers and shakes.

9 The voice of the Lord
makes deer give birth
before their time.
k 29.9 makes ... time: Or “twists the oak trees around.”
Forests are stripped of leaves,
and the temple is filled
with shouts of praise.

10 The Lord rules on his throne,
king of the flood
l 29.10 king of the flood: In ancient times the people of Israel believed that a mighty ocean surrounded all of creation, and that God could release the water to flood the earth.
11 Pray that our Lord
will make us strong
and give us peace.
