A few months ago, I was looking at The Skeptic’s Annotated Bible (SAB) in light of Jimmy’s post “Who Hardened Pharaoh’s Heart?”  In my browsing, I happened to see the SAB said that Psalm 29 was “absurd.”

From the NASB95:

A Psalm of David.

1 Ascribe to the Lord, O sons of the mighty,

Ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due to His name;

Worship the Lord in holy array.

3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters;

The God of glory thunders,

The Lord is over many waters.

4 The voice of the Lord is powerful,

The voice of the Lord is majestic.

5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;

Yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,

And Sirion like a young wild ox.

7 The voice of the Lord hews out flames of fire.

8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;

The Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9 The voice of the Lord makes the deer to calve

And strips the forests bare;

And in His temple everything says, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sat as King at the flood;

Yes, the Lord sits as King forever.

11 The Lord will give strength to His people;

The Lord will bless His people with peace (NASB95).
