Read Psalm 29


Read Psalm 29

Praise the Lord, you heavenly beings;
praise his glory and power.
2     Praise the Lord’s glorious name;
bow down before the Holy One when he appears.w
3     The voice of the Lord is heard on the seas;
the glorious God thunders,
and his voice echoes over the ocean.
4     The voice of the Lord is heard
in all its might and majesty.
5     The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
even the cedars of Lebanon.
6     He makes the mountains of Lebanon jump like calves
and makes Mount Hermon leap like a young bull.
7     The voice of the Lord makes the lightning flash.
8     His voice makes the desert shake;
he shakes the desert of Kadesh.
9     The Lord’s voice shakes the oaksx
and strips the leaves from the trees
while everyone in his Temple shouts, “Glory to God!”
10   The Lord rules over the deep waters;
he rules as king for ever.
11   The Lord gives strength to his people
and blesses them with peace.

Think

The voice of the LORD makes mountains shake, trees fall over, and it echoes over the ocean.
God's voice is loud and powerful.

Pray

Lord, your voice is loud and powerful - but I'm not very good at listening to it.  Help me to recognize it among the other voices in the world.


2 29.1, 2: Ps 96:7–9
w when he appears; or in garments of worship; or in his beautiful Temple.
x Probable text shakes the oaks; Hebrew makes the deer give birth.
