"My heart pounds as I think of this. It leaps within me.
Listen carefully to the thunder of God's voice as it rolls from his mouth.
It rolls across the heavens, and his lightning flashes out in every direction.
Then comes the roaring of the thunder -- the tremendous voice of his majesty. He does not restrain the thunder when he speaks.
God's voice is glorious in the thunder. We cannot comprehend the greatness of his power.
"He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down.
Everyone stops working at such a time so they can recognize his power.
The wild animals hide in the rocks or in their dens.
The stormy wind comes from its chamber, and the driving winds bring the cold.
God's breath sends the ice, freezing wide expanses of water.
He loads the clouds with moisture, and they flash with his lightning.
