1 Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lordglory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the Lordthe glory due his name;
worship the Lordin the splendor of his holiness.
3 The voice of the Lordis over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lordthunders over the mighty waters.
4 The voice of the Lordis powerful;
the voice of the Lordis majestic.
5 The voice of the Lordbreaks the cedars;
the Lordbreaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the Lordstrikes
with flashes of lightning.
8 The voice of the Lordshakes the desert;
the Lordshakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lordtwists the oaks
and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
10 The Lordsits enthroned over the flood;
the Lordis enthroned as King forever.
11 The Lordgives strength to his people;
the Lordblesses his people with peace.
