Psalm 29 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

God in the Thunderstorm

A song of David.

29 Praise the Lord, you angels.
    Praise the Lord’s glory and power.
Praise the Lord for the glory of his name.
    Worship the Lord because he is holy.

The Lord’s voice is heard over the sea.
    The glorious God thunders.
    The Lord thunders over the great ocean.
The Lord’s voice is powerful.
    The Lord’s voice is majestic.
The Lord’s voice breaks the trees.
    The Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes the land of Lebanon dance like a calf.
    He makes Mount Hermon jump like a baby bull.
The Lord’s voice makes the lightning flash.
The Lord’s voice shakes the desert.
    The Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
The Lord’s voice shakes the oaks.
    The leaves fall off the trees.
In his Temple everyone says, “Glory to God!”

10 The Lord controls the flood.
    The Lord will be King forever.
11 The Lord gives strength to his people.
    The Lord blesses his people with peace.

Psalm 29 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 29

A psalm of David.

Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    worship the Lord in the splendor of his[a] holiness.

The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
    the God of glory thunders,
    the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
    the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
    the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
    Sirion[b] like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord strikes
    with flashes of lightning.
The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
    the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord twists the oaks[c]
    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.
