Psalms 33

PSALM 33.

Rejoice in the  Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. Praise the  Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. For the word of the  Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the  Lord.
goodness: or, mercy
By the word of the  Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the  Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. 10 The  Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
bringeth: Heb. maketh frustrate
11 The counsel of the  Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
to all…: Heb. to generation and generation
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the  Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. 13 The  Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. 14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. 15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. 16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. 18 Behold, the eye of the  Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. 20 Our soul waiteth for the  Lord: he is our help and our shield. 21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. 22 Let thy mercy, O  Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
