Psalm 33
Holman Christian Standard Bible  Par ▾ 

Praise to the Creator

1Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous ones;

praise from the upright is beautiful.a

2Praise the LORD with the lyre;

make music to Him with a ten-stringed harp.b

3Sing a new song to Him;c

play skillfully on the strings, with a joyful shout.d

4For the word of the LORD is right,

and all His work is trustworthy.e

5He loves righteousness and justice;f

the earth is full of the LORD’s unfailing love.g

6The heavens were made by the word of the LORD,h

and all the stars, by the breath of His mouth.i

7He gathers the waters of the sea into a heap;j

He puts the depths into storehouses.k

8Let the whole earth tremble before the LORD;

let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.l

9For He spoke, and it came into being;

He commanded, and it came into existence.m

10The LORD frustrates the counsel of the nations;

He thwarts the plans of the peoples.n

11The counsel of the LORD stands forever,

the plans of His heart from generation to generation.o

12Happy is the nation whose God is Yahweh —

the people He has chosen to be His own possession!p

13The LORD looks down from heaven;

He observes everyone.q

14He gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth

from His dwelling place.r

15He alone shapes their hearts;

He considers all their works.s

16A king is not saved by a large army;

a warrior will not be delivered by great strength.t

17The horse is a false hope for safety;

it provides no escape by its great power.u

18Now the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him —

those who depend on His faithful lovev

19to deliver them from death

and to keep them alive in famine.w

20We wait for Yahweh;x

He is our help and shield.y

21For our hearts rejoice in Himz

because we trust in His holy name.aa

22May Your faithful love rest on us, Yahweh,

for we put our hope in You.ab
