Psalm 33

Psalm 33  •  2 min. read  •  grade level: 5
Rejoice in Jehovah, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
Praise Jehovah with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.
For the word of Jehovah is right; and all his works are done in truth.
He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of Jehovah.
By the word of Jehovah 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 Jehovah: 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.
Jehovah bringeth the counsel of the heathen to naught: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
The counsel of Jehovah standeth forever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose Elohim is Jehovah; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance
Jehovah looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all to their works.
There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waiteth for Jehovah: he is our help and our Sc shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
Let thy mercy, O Jehovah, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
33:1-3 Be glad in Jehovah, ye upright and righteous; 4-7 his word, works, acts; 8, 9 earth and inhabitants to join; 10 goim (peoples) and ammim (nations) fall before him; 11 his counsels stand; 12 blessed that (goi) people and that (amm) nation which he has chosen for himself; 13-15 from heaven he sees all men, &e.; 16-19 no deliverer but he; 20-22 on him we wait.
