Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  A Psalm of David. Ascribe unto Hashem, O ye sons of might, ascribe unto Hashem glory and strength.

א  מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד הָבוּ לַיהוָה בְּנֵי אֵלִים הָבוּ לַיהוָה כָּבוֹד וָעֹז.

2  Ascribe unto Hashem the glory due unto His name; worship Hashem in the beauty of holiness.

ב  הָבוּ לַיהוָה כְּבוֹד שְׁמוֹ הִשְׁתַּחֲווּ לַיהוָה בְּהַדְרַת קֹדֶשׁ.

3  The voice of Hashem is upon the waters; the God of glory thundereth, even Hashem upon many waters.

kol a-do-NAI al ha-MA-yim ayl ha-ka-VOD hir-EEM a-do-NAI al MA-yim ra-BEEM

ג  קוֹל יְהוָה עַל הַמָּיִם אֵל הַכָּבוֹד הִרְעִים יְהוָה עַל מַיִם רַבִּים.

29:3   The voice of the LORD is upon the waters

According to Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, “the word for water, מים (‘mayim’), provides an interesting example of how the Hebrew word expresses the essence of the thing it names. This word is made from two of the letters ‘mem’ (מ) and one letter ‘yud’ (י). Science tells us that a water molecule, H2O is made up of two atoms of hydrogen surrounding one atom of oxygen. In the Hebrew word, this exact structure is reflected; the letter ‘מ’ represents the hydrogen while the ‘י’ represents the oxygen.”Comment

4  The voice of Hashem is powerful; the voice of Hashem is full of majesty.

ד  קוֹל יְהוָה בַּכֹּחַ קוֹל יְהוָה בֶּהָדָר.

5  The voice of Hashem breaketh the cedars; yea, Hashem breaketh in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

ה  קוֹל יְהוָה שֹׁבֵר אֲרָזִים וַיְשַׁבֵּר יְהוָה אֶת אַרְזֵי הַלְּבָנוֹן.

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

ו  וַיַּרְקִידֵם כְּמוֹ עֵגֶל לְבָנוֹן וְשִׂרְיֹן כְּמוֹ בֶן רְאֵמִים.

7  The voice of Hashem heweth out flames of fire.

ז  קוֹל יְהוָה חֹצֵב לַהֲבוֹת אֵשׁ.

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

ח  קוֹל יְהוָה יָחִיל מִדְבָּר יָחִיל יְהוָה מִדְבַּר קָדֵשׁ.

9  The voice of Hashem maketh the hinds to calve, and strippeth the forests bare; and in His temple all say: ‘Glory.’

ט  קוֹל יְהוָה יְחוֹלֵל אַיָּלוֹת וַיֶּחֱשֹׂף יְעָרוֹת וּבְהֵיכָלוֹ כֻּלּוֹ אֹמֵר כָּבוֹד.

10  Hashem sat enthroned at the flood; yea, Hashem sitteth as King for ever.

י  יְהוָה לַמַּבּוּל יָשָׁב וַיֵּשֶׁב יְהוָה מֶלֶךְ לְעוֹלָם.

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

יא  יְהוָה עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן יְהוָה יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם.

  • The power behind the Name of God. The essence of God. Wow, were does one begin with something so profound as this. Were to begin? From what I understand, No one truly knows the name of God. Except God. Perhaps the Angels in heaven. There is so much we know and do not know. I am not a scholar but i do believe with all my heart and soul. I trust and do not dought in any way what God teaches us through the Torah.The Power and Glory that are behind and indwell in that name are intertwined in the very creation of all that there is and will ever be. The water are the essence of all life on this earth. God is the creator of all life every were. All life comes from God. The connection is God. The name of God is life!. Carl
