Does The Lord's Voice Split Mighty Oaks
or Make Deer Give Birth?

29:1 Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon 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 breaketh the cedars; yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.

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

7 The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire.

8 The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness; the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

9 The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve (or splits the mighty oaks), and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.

"Hark! his voice in thunder breaks,
And the lofty mountain quakes;
Mighty trees the tempests tear,
And lay the spreading forests bare" -- Dr. Harris

10 The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever.

11 The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.

You mighty ones, give to the Lord as his right,
Ascribe to the Lord God both glory and might.
To the Lord's name due glory and honor accord;
In beauty of holiness worship the Lord.

The Lord's voice is over the waters abroad,
And thunder proceeds from the glorious God.
Above all the waters God's thunder is heard;
A powerful voice is the voice of the Lord.

The voice of the Lord is majestic and loud;
By the voice of the Lord the great cedars are bowed.
Yes, even the cedars of Lebanon tall,
The Lord breaks in pieces and shatters them all.

Like the leap of a calf he shakes Lebanon's rocks,
And Sirion skips like a startled wild ox.
The voice of the Lord causes lightning to flash;
The voice of the Lord makes the wilderness crash.

The Lord makes the desert of Kadesh to shake;
The Lord causes oaks of the forest to quake.
The trees of the forest he strips of their leaves,
And he in his temple great glory receives.

The Lord over floods sits as monarch alone;
The Lord sits for ever as King on his throne.
The Lord makes the strength of his people increase;
The Lord gives his people the blessing of peace.
