Day 5 — Psalm 29

Hymn to the Lord of the storm

Psalm, of David.

Pay tribute to Yahweh, you sons of God,
tribute to Yahweh of glory and power,
tribute to Yahweh of the glory of His name,
worship Yahweh in His sacred court.

The voice of Yahweh over the waters!
Yahweh over the multitudinous waters!
The voice of Yahweh in power!
The voice of Yahweh in splendor!

The voice of Yahweh shatters the cedars,
Yahweh shatters the cedars of Lebanon,
making Lebanon leap like a calf,
Sirion like a young wild bull.

The voice of Yahweh sharpens lightning shafts!

The voice of Yahweh sets the wilderness shaking.
Yahweh shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of Yahweh sets the terebinths shuddering,
stripping the forests bare.

The God of glory thunders.
In His palace everything cries, ‘Glory!’
Yahweh sat enthroned for the Flood,
Yahweh sits enthroned as a king for ever.

Yahweh gives strength to His people,
Yahweh blesses His people with peace.

Next… Day 6 — Psalm 30
