Psalm 29

Praise to God in His Holiness and Majesty

A Psalm of David.

1 Give 1 aunto the Lord, O you mighty ones,

Give unto the Lord glory and strength.

2 2Give unto the Lord the glory 3due to His name;

Worship the Lord in bthe 4beauty of holiness.

3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters;

cThe God of glory thunders;

The Lord is over many waters.

4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;

The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

5 The voice of the Lord breaks dthe cedars,

Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

6 eHe makes them also skip like a calf,

Lebanon and fSirion like a young wild ox.

7 The voice of the Lord 5divides the flames of fire.

8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;

The Lord shakes the Wilderness of gKadesh.

9 The voice of the Lord makes the hdeer give birth,

And strips the forests bare;

And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

10 The iLord sat enthroned at the Flood,

And jthe Lord sits as King forever.

11 kThe Lord will give strength to His people;

The Lord will bless His people with peace.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
