This is a series of ideas. Often the last point is the key point of the list.

Psalms 121:5-8

The LORD is your keeper;

The LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night.

The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul.

The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.

The Lord protects you and He can do so for all eternity.

Psalms 29:3-9

The voice of the LORD is over the waters;

            The God of glory thunders;

            The LORD is over many waters.

The voice of the LORD is powerful;

The voice of the LORD is full of majesty.

The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars,

            Yes, the LORD splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

             He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.

The voice of the LORD divides the flames of fire.

The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness;

            The LORD shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.

The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth, And strips the forests bare;

            And in His temple everyone says, "Glory!"

This is a list of how powerful God's voice is. What He says happens. And the result is that those who worship God give Him glory. Also, notice the sequence in the overall layout:
