Psalms 33

Praise to the Creator and Preserver.

1 a  Sing for joy in the  Lord, O you righteous ones;
Praise is b  becoming to the upright.
2Give thanks to the  Lord with the c  lyre;
Sing praises to Him with a d  harp of ten strings.
3Sing to Him a e  new song;
Play skillfully with f  a shout of joy.
4For the word of the  Lord g  is upright,
And all His work is done h  in faithfulness.
5He i  loves righteousness and justice;
The j  earth is full of the lovingkindness of the  Lord.

6By the k  word of the  Lord the heavens were made,
And l  by the breath of His mouth m  all their host.
7He gathers the n  waters of the sea together
Some versions read in a water skin; i.e. container
as a heap;
He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
8Let p  all the earth fear the  Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world q  stand in awe of Him.
9For r  He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it
Or stood forth
stood fast.
10The  Lord t  nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
11The u  counsel of the  Lord stands forever,
The v  plans of His heart from generation to generation.
12Blessed is the w  nation whose God is the  Lord,
The people whom He has x  chosen for His own inheritance.

13The  Lord y  looks from heaven;
He z  sees all the sons of men;
14From aa  His dwelling place He looks out
On all the inhabitants of the earth,
15He who ab  fashions
Or their heart together
the hearts of them all,
He who ad  understands all their works.
16 ae  The king is not saved by a mighty army;
A warrior is not delivered by great strength.
17A af  horse is a false hope for victory;
Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.

18Behold ag  the eye of the  Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who
Or wait
,
ai  hope for His lovingkindness,
19To aj  deliver their soul from death
And to keep them alive ak  in famine.
20Our soul al  waits for the  Lord;
He is our am  help and our shield.
21For our an  heart rejoices in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.
22Let Your lovingkindness, O  Lord, be upon us,
According as we have
Or waited for
hoped in You.
