Psalm 29 9 Commentary

Psalm 29 9 Commentary

Well – as we start our Psalm 29 9 commentary – David goes back to noting how the Lord’s voice in the storm affects the forest and even some animals in it. 9 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve,and discovereth the forests:and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.

Psalm 29 Commentary

Psalm 29 Commentary

Psalm 29 is a praise psalm in which the Lord is receiving praise for being the God of the storm. David is urging his fellow-Israelites to stop attributing the power and benefits of storms to the false god Baal. Instead, he urges them to worship the Lord alone. And the big reason he gives for us worshiping the Lord in this psalm is his power over storms. So, we could call this psalm Praise to God for His Power Over Storms. It’s not Baal who has power over storms. It’s not even “mother nature” and it’s certainly not just random chance. No – storms are God’s doing. He has control over them and his awesome power and sovereignty are displayed through them.
