to the voice of God, to the thunder that comes from his mouth.
from one end of the earth to the other.
the majestic sound of thunder,
and all the while the lightning flashes.
wonderful things that we can’t understand.
and sends torrents of drenching rain.
he shows us what he can do.o
and the biting cold from the north.
and turns them to solid ice.
11 Lightning flashes from the clouds,p
They do all that God commands,
everywhere throughout the world.
he may send it to punish us,
or to show us his favour.
consider the wonderful things God does.
and makes lightning flash from the clouds?
the work of God’s amazing skill?
when the south wind oppresses the land.
and make it as hard as polished metal?
our minds are blank; we have nothing to say.
why should I give him a chance to destroy me?
too bright for us to look at it;
and the sky has been swept clean by the wind.
and the glory of God fills us with awe.
he is righteous and just in his dealings with us.
and that he ignores those who claim to be wise.
