LXX Psalm 28:3


1 Bring to the Lord, ye sons of God, bring to the Lord young rams; bring to the Lord glory and honour. 2 Bring to the Lord glory, due to his name; worship the Lord in his holy court. 3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory has thundered: the Lord is upon many waters. 4 The voice of the Lord is mighty; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. 5 There is the voice of the Lord who breaks the cedars; the Lord will break the cedars of Libanus.

Revelation 10:3

New Testament

1 Then I saw another powerful angel descending from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like pillars of fire. 2 He held in his hand a little scroll that was open, and he put his right foot on the sea and his left on the land. 3 Then he shouted in a loud voice like a lion roaring, and when he shouted, the seven thunders sounded their voices. 4 When the seven thunders spoke, I was preparing to write, but just then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders spoke and do not write it down.” 5 Then the angel I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven

 Notes and References

"... In the New Testament, Revelation 10:2-4 appears to be familiar with the LXX rendering of Psalm 28, as does Acts 2. The ongoing interpretation of the Psalms can be traced through many church fathers, too. A significant influence of the Psalms, however, is the way that its distinctive language has influenced later Christian vocabulary ..."
