1 A melody of David.
Give Jehovah his due, you sons of mighty ones, Give Jehovah his due for his glory and strength.
2 Give Jehovah the glory due his name. Bow down to Jehovah in holy adornment.
3 The voice of Jehovah is heard over the waters; The glorious God thunders. Jehovah is over many waters.
4 The voice of Jehovah is powerful; The voice of Jehovah is splendid.
5 The voice of Jehovah is breaking the cedars; Yes, Jehovah shatters the cedars of Lebʹanon.
6 He makes Lebʹanon skip like a calf, And Sirʹion like a young wild bull.
7 The voice of Jehovah strikes with flames of fire;
8 The voice of Jehovah makes the wilderness shudder; Jehovah makes the wilderness of Kaʹdesh shudder.
9 The voice of Jehovah makes the deer shudder and give birth And strips bare the forests. And all in his temple say: “Glory!”
10 Jehovah sits enthroned above the flooding waters; Jehovah sits enthroned as King forever.
11 Jehovah will give strength to his people. Jehovah will bless his people with peace.
