A psalm of David.
1Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings29:1 Hebrew you sons of God.;
honor the Lord for his glory and strength.
2Honor the Lord for the glory of his name.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
3The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea.
The God of glory thunders.
The Lord thunders over the mighty sea.
4The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars;
the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
6He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf;
he makes Mount Hermon29:6 Hebrew Sirion, another name for Mount Hermon. leap like a young wild ox.
7The voice of the Lord strikes
with bolts of lightning.
8The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
9The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks29:9 Or causes the deer to writhe in labor.
and strips the forests bare.
In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!”
10The Lord rules over the floodwaters.
The Lord reigns as king forever.
11The Lord gives his people strength.
The Lord blesses them with peace.
