Psalm 29 is the 29th psalm from the Book of Psalms.

It is "a hymn, describing the advent of Yahweh in a storm. (1) The angels worship Yahweh in the heavenly temple (v.1-2); (2) the thunder of Yahweh's voice is a great power (a) on the waters (v.3-4); (b) upon Lebanon and its cedars (v.5-6); (c) upon the wilderness and its forests (v.8-9); (3) Yahweh, enthroned over the Flood, reigns forever and bestows blessings on his people (v.10-11)."[1]

According to Charles and Emilie Briggs, it "seems to belong to the Persian period subsequent to Nehemiah," that is, between 445 and 333 BCE. [2][3][4]
