PSALM 29 - The Voice of God 30 Nov 2019
Seven times the voice of God is mentioned in this psalm. The number of fullness.
A powerful voice. The voice of a king.
Yesterday I wrote about the voice of David. Today it is the turn of God to voice out. A voice of power and authority. He is king. His will be done. Still I deny His voice. The voice of life. The voice of goodness and security. The dog in the picture may be more wise than I am. He or she knows to recognize his masters voice from a recording.
1 [Psalm Of David]
Give Yahweh his due, sons of God,
give Yahweh his due of glory and strength,
2 give Yahweh the glory due to his name,
adore Yahweh in the splendour of holiness.
3 Yahweh's voice over the waters,
the God of glory thunders;
Yahweh over countless waters,
4 Yahweh's voice in power,
Yahweh's voice in splendour;
5 Yahweh's voice shatters cedars,
Yahweh shatters cedars of Lebanon,
6 he makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
Sirion like a young wild ox.
7 Yahweh's voice carves out lightning-shafts,
8 Yahweh's voice convulses the desert,
Yahweh convulses the desert of Kadesh,
9 Yahweh's voice convulses terebinths,
strips forests bare. In his palace all cry, "Glory!"
10 Yahweh was enthroned for the flood,
Yahweh is enthroned as king for ever.
11 Yahweh will give strength to his people,
Yahweh blesses his people with peace.
