Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
when He established a limit for the rain and a path for the lightning,
For He makes waterdrops evaporate; they distill the rain into its mist,
which the clouds pour out and shower abundantly on mankind.
He lets it loose beneath the entire sky; His lightning to the ends of the earth.
Then there comes a roaring sound; God thunders with His majestic voice. He does not restrain the lightning when His [rumbling] voice is heard.
God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things that we cannot comprehend.
For He says to the snow, "Fall to the earth," and the torrential rains, His mighty torrential rains,
The voice of the LORD is above the waters. The God of glory thunders-- the LORD, above vast waters,
the voice of the LORD in power, the voice of the LORD in splendor.
The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion, like a young wild ox.
The voice of the LORD flashes flames of fire.
The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth and strips the woodlands bare. In His temple all cry, "Glory!"
The LORD sat enthroned at the flood; the LORD sits enthroned, King forever.
