Psalms 29



Verse 1
"A Psalm of David." Give unto the LORD, O ye a mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

(a) He exhorts the proud tyrants to humble themselves under God's hand, and not to be inferior to brute beasts and dumb creatures.

Verse 3
The b voice of the LORD [is] upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD [is] upon many waters.

(b) The thunder claps that are heard out of the clouds should make the wicked tremble for fear of God's anger.

Verse 5
The c voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.

(c) That is, the thunderbolt breaks the most strong trees, and will men think their power able to resist God?

Verse 6
He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and d Sirion like a young unicorn.

(d) Called also Hermon.

Verse 7
The voice of the LORD divideth the e flames of fire.

(e) It causes the lightnings to shoot and glide.

Verse 8
The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of f Kadesh.

(f) In places most desolate, where it seems there is no presence of God.

Verse 9
The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to g calve, and h discovereth the forests: and in his i temple doth every one speak of [his] glory.

(g) For fear makes them deliver their calves.

(h) Makes the trees bare, or pierces the most secret places.

(i) Though the wicked are not moved by these lights, yet the faithful praise God.

Verse 10
The LORD sitteth upon the k flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.

(k) To moderate the rage of the tempests and waters that they not destroy all.
