Ascribe to the LORD, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness.
The voice of the LORD is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the LORD, over many waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful;
the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
What do you feel when you hear the rumbling of an oncoming thunderstorm? Or think when you see the gathering of dark clouds? Perhaps you only expect a good downpour of rain.
David, the author of this psalm, gives us an awe-inspiring look at what he sees and hears. His purpose is to shrink our problems down to size by giving us a powerful and glorious view of God.
