The Voice of the Lord in the Storm#HEBREW TITLE: A psalm by David.
1 # Ps 96.7-9 Praise the Lord, you heavenly beings;
praise his glory and power.
2Praise the Lord's glorious name;
bow down before the Holy One when he appears.#29.2: when he appears; or in garments of worship; or in his beautiful Temple.
3The voice of the Lord is heard on the seas;
the glorious God thunders,
and his voice echoes over the ocean.
4The voice of the Lord is heard
in all its might and majesty.
5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
even the cedars of Lebanon.
6He makes the mountains of Lebanon jump like calves
and makes Mount Hermon leap like a young bull.
7The voice of the Lord makes the lightning flash.
8His voice makes the desert shake;
he shakes the desert of Kadesh.
9The Lord's voice shakes the oaks#29.9: Probable text shakes the oaks; Hebrew makes the deer give birth.
and strips the leaves from the trees
while everyone in his Temple shouts, “Glory to God!”
10The Lord rules over the deep waters;
he rules as king forever.
11The Lord gives strength to his people
and blesses them with peace.
