Psalms 33

Praise to the Creator and Preserver.

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

By the k word of the  Lord the heavens were made,
And l by the breath of His mouth m all their host.
He 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.
Let p all the earth fear the  Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world q stand in awe of Him.
For r He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it
Or stood forth
stood fast.
10 The  Lord t nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
11 The u counsel of the  Lord stands forever,
The v plans of His heart from generation to generation.
12 Blessed is the w nation whose God is the  Lord,
The people whom He has x chosen for His own inheritance.

13 The  Lord y looks from heaven;
He z sees all the sons of men;
14 From aa His dwelling place He looks out
On all the inhabitants of the earth,
15 He 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.
17 A af horse is a false hope for victory;
Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.

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