Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Psalm 29:2
The Voice of the LORD in the Storm
A worship psalm of David. It is a psalm of pure praise, exalting in God’s power over nature. A thunderstorm towers majestically above the Promised Land arousing David’s praise and sparking the realization that it’s the Lord who is enthroned in nature. Surely so great a God is able to strengthen and bless His people.
29:10, 11 As Baal was supposed to have been victorious over the waters, here it is God who is the true victor over all. He even controls the waters at the height of their destructive power, the Flood. There is no one to oppose His glorious rule; He is King forever. The Lord will give strength: Since He is the true God, there is none other. Only He can empower His people.
29 1 A Psalm of David. Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones, Give unto the Lord glory and strength. 2 Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. 3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters; The God of glory thunders; The Lord is over many waters. 4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; The voice of the Lord is full of majesty. 5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon. 6 He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox. 7 The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire. 8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh. 9 The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!” 10 The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, And the Lord sits as King forever. 11 The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.
