The Voice of the Lord

A Davidic psalm.

1 Give the Lord-you heavenly beingsa- give the Lord glory and strength.
2 Give the Lord the glory due His name; worship the Lord in the splendor of [His] holiness.b
3 The voice of the Lord is above the waters. The God of glory thunders- the Lord, above vast waters,
4 the voice of the Lord in power, the voice of the Lord in splendor.
5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion,c like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the Lord flashes flames of fire.
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birthd and strips the woodlands bare. In His temple all cry, "Glory!"
10 The Lord sat enthroned at the flood; the Lord sits enthroned, King forever.
11 The Lord gives His people strength; the Lord blesses His people with peace.
