Psalms 33 [Commentary] |
||Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming to the upright.
||Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre;
Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings.
||Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully with a shout of joy.
||For the word of the LORD is upright,
And all His work is done in faithfulness.
||He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the LORD.
||By the word of the LORD the heavens were made,
And by the breath of His mouth all their host.
||He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;
He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
||Let all the earth fear the LORD;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
||For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.
||The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
||The counsel of the LORD stands forever,
The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
||Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
||The LORD looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men;
||From His dwelling place He looks out
On all the inhabitants of the earth,
||He who fashions the hearts of them all,
He who understands all their works.
||The king is not saved by a mighty army;
A warrior is not delivered by great strength.
||A horse is a false hope for victory;
Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.
||Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
||To deliver their soul from death
And to keep them alive in famine.
||Our soul waits for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
||For our heart rejoices in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.
||Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us,
According as we have hoped in You.
