Job 37:4
4After it His voice roars; He [God] thunders with the voice of His majesty, and He restrains not [His lightnings against His adversaries] when His voice is heard.

Psalm 29:All
1 Ascribe to the Lord, O sons of the mighty, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. 2 Give to the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness or in holy array. 3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders; the Lord is upon many (great) waters. 4 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. 5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. 6 He makes them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion (Mount Hermon) like a young, wild ox. 7 The voice of the Lord splits and flashes forth forked lightning. 8 The voice of the Lord makes the wilderness tremble; the Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh. 9 The voice of the Lord makes the deer bring forth their young, and His voice strips bare the forests, while in His temple everyone is saying, Glory! 10 The Lord sat as King over the deluge; the Lord [still] sits as King [and] forever! 11 The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.

Psalm 33:6-9
6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, and all their host by the breath of His mouth. 7 He gathers the waters of the sea as in a bottle; He puts the deeps in storage places. 8 Let all the earth fear the Lord [revere and worship Him]; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. 9 For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.

Romans 4:17
17 As it is written in the Scriptures: “I [God] am making you [Abraham] a father of many nations.” This is true before [in the presence of] God, the God Abraham believed, the God Who gives life to the dead and Who creates something out of nothing [God speaks things into existence that did not exist previously].

In these Bible verses, in English, two verbs to describe God’s voice are “roar” and “thunder.”

In Psalm 29, verse 5 God’s voice shatters trees; in verse 9 His voice takes the bark off trees. In verse 8 His voice causes the wilderness to tremble. And in verse 9 His voice causes deer to give birth. What absolute power!

After all those displays of God’s power, why do you think Psalm 29:11 ends with the words, “The Lord will bless His people with peace?”

Ephesians 1:2
2May grace (God’s unmerited favor) and spiritual peace [which means peace with God and harmony, unity, and undisturbedness] be yours from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
