In a synagogue, as the Torah scroll is being carried back to the ark on Shabbat, Psalm 29 is recited by the congregation

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]
