And lightning are significant manifestations of the power of God, and emblems of his presence, Exodus 19:16 1 Samuel 2:10 12:17 Psalm 18:13 . Thunder is poetically called "the voice of the Lord" in the sublime description of a thunder-storm in Psalm 29:11 ;

"The voice of the Lord is upon the waters;

The God of glory thundereth;

The Lord is upon many waters.

The voice of the Lord is powerful;

The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars;

Yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon," etc.

See also Job 37:1-5 40:9 Jeremiah 10:13 . In illustration of Ps

29:9, Moffat, while describing the thunder-storms of South Africa,

say that the antelopes flee in consternation; and that he has

observed the Bechuanas starting off early on the morning following

such a storm in quest of young antelopes prematurely born. In Ps

78:48, "hot thunderbolts" means lightning.
