Book I
The Voice of Jehovah in the Storm
A Psalm of David.
[1]  ASCRIBE unto Jehovah, O ye sons 1 of the mighty, 2
Ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength.
[2]  Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name;
Worship Jehovah in 3 holy array.
[3]  The voice of Jehovah is upon the waters:
The God of glory thundereth,
Even Jehovah upon many 4 waters.
[4]  The voice of Jehovah is powerful;
The voice of Jehovah is full of majesty.
[5]  The voice of Jehovah breaketh the cedars;
Yea, Jehovah breaketh in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
[6]  He maketh them also to skip like a calf;
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild-ox.
[7]  The voice of Jehovah cleaveth 5 the flames of fire.
[8]  The voice of Jehovah shaketh the wilderness;
Jehovah shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
[9]  The voice of Jehovah maketh the hinds to calve,
And strippeth the forests bare:
And in his temple everything saith, Glory.
[10]  Jehovah sat as King at the Flood;
Yea, Jehovah sitteth as King for ever.
[11]  Jehovah will give strength unto his people;
Jehovah will bless his people with peace.
