voice [qowl] of the LORD [Yahovah] is
upon the waters [mayim]: the God ['el] of glory [kabowd]
thundereth [ra`am]: the LORD [Yahovah] is upon many [rab] waters [mayim]. KJV-Interlinear
3 The voice
of the Lord is upon the waters; The God of glory thunders, The Lord is over
many waters. NASB
Even though none of us have ever seen or heard God, He has given us many natural events in nature with which to understand Him and His glory and power. Thunder, in a vast and violent storm, is described as the voice of God, demonstrating His awesome power, of which nothing can stop or prevent.
God is heavenward. Thunder is always something that makes us look skyward when we hear it. It can roll across the sky from one horizon to the other without restriction and with seeming ease.
Upon the waters, is plural, and indicates the echo effect or the complete significance that God has on the world. His voice reaches everything, and affects everything, and is magnified when it touches reality.
Gods voice always comes from above. It fills one with awe and emotion.
Gods voice speaks to humanity, but only if humanity listens and takes notice. One has to first comprehend the nature of God, then hear the sound of His voice within the many symbolisms that He has provided in nature, before one can really begin to fathom His vastness, His superiority, and His power, and then realize our insignificance and inferior place that we have in this world.
Over the waters, is again plural, and indicates that there is no restriction, no place from which Gods voice cannot reach. God controls history. God sustains history. God has a plan, a divine plan that impacts everything and everyone. Nothing is left to chance. Nothing is beyond His reach.
