Psalm 29

Ascribe to Yahweh, members of Godís council;

    Ascribe to Yahweh glory and strength; (1)

        Ascribe to Yahweh the glory of his name;

            Worship Yahweh in his holy theophany! (2)

The voice of Yahweh is over the waters--the God of glory thunders.

    Yahweh is over the breakers. (3)

The voice of Yahweh has strength;

    the voice of Yahweh is majestic. (4)

The voice of Yahweh breaks cedars;

    Yahweh shatters the cedars of Lebanon. (5)

He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,

    Sirion like a young buffalo. (6)

The voice of Yahweh strikes with flames of fire. (7)

    The voice of Yahweh makes the desert writhe,

Yahweh makes the desert of Qadesh writhe. (8)

    The voice of Yahweh makes the hinds give birth;

    it defoliates the forests.

In his temple all say, "Glory." (9)

Yahweh sits enthroned over the flood dragon;

    Yahweh sits enthroned as king forever. (10)

May Yahweh give strength to his people;

    may Yahweh bless his people with peace. (11)
