1 Ascribe to the LORD, you heavenly beings, ¶ ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his [^1] holiness.
3 The voice of the LORD is over the waters; ¶ the God of glory thunders, ¶ the LORD thunders over the mighty waters.
4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.
5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion [^2] like a young wild ox.
7 The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning.
8 The voice of the LORD shakes the desert; the LORD shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the LORD twists the oaks [^3] and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, "Glory!"
10 The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; ¶ the LORD is enthroned as King forever.
11 The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
