The Voice of the Lord

1 A Davidic psalm.
Ascribe to Yahweh, you heavenly beings,(a)
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to Yahweh the glory due His name;
worship Yahweh
in the splendor of His holiness.(b)(A)
The voice of the Lord is above the waters.
The God of glory thunders—
the Lord, above vast waters,(B)
the voice of the Lord in power,
the voice of the Lord in splendor.(C)
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.(D)
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,(E)
and Sirion,(c) like a young wild ox.(F)
The voice of the Lord flashes flames of fire.(G)
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.(H)
The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth(d)(I)
and strips the woodlands bare.(J)

In His temple all cry, “Glory!”
The Lord sat enthroned at the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned, King forever.(K)
The Lord gives His people strength;(L)
the Lord blesses His people with peace.(M)
