Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 29:9


29:9 To calve - Through the terror it causes, which hastens the birth. He names the hinds, because they bring forth their young with difficulty, #Job 39:1|,2. Discovereth - Heb. maketh bare, of its trees, which it breaks or strips of their leaves. Glory - Having shewed the terrible effects of God's power in other places, he now shews the blessed privilege of God's people, that are praising God in his temple, when the rest of the world are trembling under the tokens of his displeasure.

    And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth. Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever. Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
