Psalm 29

A Psalm of David.

1 Ascribe unto Jehovah, O ye sons of the mighty, Ascribe unto Jehovah glory and strength.

2 Ascribe unto Jehovah the glory due unto his name; Worship Jehovah in holy array.

3 The voice of Jehovah is upon the waters: The God of glory thundereth, Even Jehovah upon many waters.

4 The voice of Jehovah is powerful; The voice of Jehovah is full of majesty.

5 The voice of Jehovah breaketh the cedars; Yea, Jehovah breaketh in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

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

7 The voice of Jehovah cleaveth the flames of fire.

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

9 The voice of Jehovah maketh the hinds to calve, And strippeth the forests bare: And in his temple everything saith, Glory.

10 Jehovah sat as King at the Flood; Yea, Jehovah sitteth as King for ever.

11 Jehovah will give strength unto his people; Jehovah will bless his people with peace.

Matthew 5:7-12

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called sons of God.

10 Blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye when men shall reproach you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets that were before you.
