Tehillim / Psalms 29, Part 1, Breaking the Cedars of Lebanon


This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 29:1-11, David opens saying א  מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד הָבוּ לַיהֹוָה בְּנֵי אֵלִים הָבוּ לַיהֹוָה כָּבוֹד וָעֹז: A Psalm of David. 29:1 Ascribe to the Lord, O sons of the mighty, Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. (NASB)  What does it mean to “ascribe” to the Lord glory and strength?  David answers this saying ב  הָבוּ לַיהֹוָה כְּבוֹד שְׁמוֹ הִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהֹוָה בְּהַדְרַת-קֹדֶשׁ:  29:2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due to His name; Worship the Lord in holy array. (NASB)  David provides examples of the glory of the Lord saying ג  קוֹל יְהֹוָה עַל-הַמָּיִם אֵל-הַכָּבוֹד הִרְעִים יְהֹוָה עַל-מַיִם רַבִּים: ד  קוֹל-יְהֹוָה בַּכֹּחַ קוֹל יְהֹוָה בֶּהָדָר: ה  קוֹל יְהֹוָה שֹׁבֵר אֲרָזִים וַיְשַׁבֵּר יְהֹוָה אֶת-אַרְזֵי הַלְּבָנוֹן: 29:3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; The God of glory thunders, The Lord is over many waters. 29:4 The voice of the Lord is powerful, The voice of the Lord is majestic. 29:5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; Yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. (NASB)  Many times we hear throughout the Scriptures of Lebanon and of the cedars of Lebanon.  What is it about the cedars of Lebanon that is amazing that the Lord is able to break these cedars with His voice?
