World English Bible
To him who rides on the heaven of heavens, which are of old; behold, he utters his voice, a mighty voice.
Young's Literal Translation

CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

He doth send out his voice - At his word of command they run, shed, or reflect their light; and without the smallest deviations obey his will.
Mighty voice - He thunders in the heavens, and men tremble before him.

1 Kings 8:27
"But will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built!
He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind.
The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him--his name is the LORD.
