Ascribe to the Lord Glory
A Psalm of David.
1Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,#29:1 Hebrew sons of God, or sons of might
# Ps. 96:7, 8; 1 Chr. 16:28, 29; [Ps. 68:34] ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in #Ps. 110:3; 1 Chr. 16:29; [Ex. 28:2]the splendor of holiness.#29:2 Or in holy attire
3The voice of the Lord is over #[Ps. 18:11] the waters;
the God of glory #Job 37:4, 5thunders,
the Lord, over many waters.
4The voice of the Lord is #Ps. 68:33powerful;
the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks #Ps. 104:16; Judg. 9:15the cedars of Lebanon.
6He makes Lebanon to #Ps. 114:4, 6 skip like a calf,
and #Deut. 3:9 Sirion like a young #Num. 23:22wild ox.
7The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
8The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of #Num. 13:26Kadesh.
9The voice of the Lord makes #[Job 39:1-3]the deer give birth#29:9 Revocalization yields makes the oaks to shake
and strips the forests bare,
and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
10The Lord sits enthroned over #[Gen. 6:17] the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned #Ps. 10:16as king forever.
11May the Lord give #Ps. 68:35; [Isa. 40:29] strength to his people!
May the Lord bless#29:11 Or The Lord will give . . . The Lord will bless his people with #Phil. 4:7peace!
