A Psalm of David.
1 Render to Yahweh, you sons of God,
render to Yahweh glory and strength.
2 Render to Yahweh the glory due to his name.
Worship Yahweh in holy attire.
3 Yahweh’s voice is on the waters.
The God of glory thunders,
Yahweh is on many waters.
4 Yahweh’s voice is powerful.
Yahweh’s voice is full of majesty.
5 The voice of Yahweh breaks the cedars.
Yes, Yahweh breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6 Yes, he makes Lebanon skip like a calf;
and Sirion skip like a young wild ox.
7 Yahweh’s voice strikes with flames of fire.
8 Yahweh’s voice causes the wilderness to tremble.
Yahweh causes the wilderness of Kadesh to tremble.
9 Yahweh’s voice makes the trees writhe,
and strips the forests bare.
But in his temple everything says, “Glory!”
10 Yahweh sat enthroned at the flood.
Yes, Yahweh is sitting enthroned as king forever.
11 Yahweh will give strength to his people.
Yahweh will bless his people with peace.
