1 “A psalm of David.” Ascribe unto the Lord, O ye sons of the mighty, ascribe unto the Lord glory and strength.
2 Ascribe unto the Lord the glory of his name; bow down to the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thundereth, the Lord—upon mighty waters.
4 The voice of the Lord [resoundeth] with power; the voice of the Lord [resoundeth] with majesty.
5 The voice of the Lord breaketh in pieces the cedars; yea, the Lord shivereth the cedars of Lebanon;
6 And he maketh them skip like a calf; Lebanon and Siryon like young reems.
7 The voice of the Lord heweth out flames of fire.
8 The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of the Lord causeth the hinds to start, and maketh bare forests: and in his temple every thing speaketh [of his] glory.
10 The Lord sat [enthroned] at the flood: and the Lord will sit as King for ever.
11 The Lord will give strength unto his people: the Lord will bless his people with peace.
