2 Give unto Yahweh the glory due unto his name; worship Yahweh in the beauty of holiness.
Beauty is that attribute which gives pleasure simply by its existence, that which embodies in itself its own reason for being. This is the ultimate state of the redeemed. Beauty is perfection of form or quality. Holiness, or divine eternal perfection is the only true beauty.
3 The voice of Yahweh is upon the waters: the El of glory thundereth: Yahweh is upon many waters.
The institutions of Nature
The machine has gone all wrong, so far as our earth is concerned.
...Nature promises nothing, gives us nothing, and explains nothing, apart from God, who made heaven and earth, and gave us Christ, His Son. The gospel promises everything, explains everything, and without detracting an atom from the interest of science, or the glory of the universe. Nay, Christ is for us the essential counterpart of nature; for with him all is secured-earth, sun, moon and stars, and eternity. As Paul has it:
"All things are yours, whether the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come, all are yours, and ye are Christ's and Christ is God's."
Without him, nothing is ours. We are portionless orphans, flitting across a transitory scene, to die and disappear, and be no more known for ever. The highest title will not avert it. The most substantial possession will not stave it off. The most resplendent honours will not avail for a moment to give us place in the permanent house of God. Only in Christ can men have this hope. He is gone to prepare a place for them. He will come again and receive them to himself.
What course then, but one, is wise, and that is, to hold on amid all delays. To be patient under all affliction. Faithful against all unbelief. Obedient under all trial. True to Christ under every difficulty, knowing that the longest probation will come to an end, the keenest suffering will be forgotten at last, and that the longest watch, faithfully maintained-even amidst painfulness and weariness, fastings oft and tribulation-will dissolve at last in the dewdrops of joyful tears, when we step from the dismal shades of the night into the brightness of everlasting day, in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, with all his saints.

4 The voice of Yahweh is powerful; the voice of Yahweh is full of majesty.
5 The voice of Yahweh breaketh the cedars; yea, Yahweh breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7 The voice of Yahweh divideth the flames of fire.
8 The voice of Yahweh shaketh the wilderness; Yahweh shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
9 The voice of Yahweh maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
10 Yahweh sitteth upon the flood; yea, Yahweh sitteth King for ever.
11 Yahweh will give strength unto his people; Yahweh will bless his people with peace.
