Psalm 29
New American Bible Revised Edition

Psalm 29*

The Lord of Majesty Acclaimed as King of the World

1A psalm of David.


Give to the Lord, you sons of God,*

give to the Lord glory and might;

2Give to the Lord the glory due his name.

Bow down before the Lord’s holy splendor!a


3The voice of the Lord* is over the waters;

the God of glory thunders,

the Lord, over the mighty waters.

4The voice of the Lord is power;

the voice of the Lord is splendor.b

5The voice of the Lord cracks the cedars;

the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon,

6Makes Lebanon leap like a calf,

and Sirion* like a young bull.

7The voice of the Lord strikes with fiery flame;

8the voice of the Lord shakes the desert;

the Lord shakes the desert of Kadesh.

9*The voice of the Lord makes the deer dance

and strips the forests bare.

All in his Temple say, “Glory!”


10The Lord sits enthroned above the flood!*c

The Lord reigns as king forever!

11May the Lord give might to his people;*

may the Lord bless his people with peace!d
