Psalm 33
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Yahweh Is Our Help and Our Shield

1Sing for joy in Yahweh, O righteous ones;

Praise is becoming to the upright.

2Give thanks to Yahweh with the lyre;

Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings.

3Sing to Him a new song;

Play skillfully with a loud shout.

4For the word of Yahweh is upright,

And all His work is done in faithfulness.

5He loves righteousness and justice;

The earth is full of the lovingkindness of Yahweh.

6By the word of Yahweh the heavens were made,

And by the breath of His mouth all their host.

7He gathers the waters of the sea [†]as a heap;

He lays up the deeps in storehouses.

8Let all the earth fear Yahweh;

Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

9For He spoke, and it was;

He commanded, and it [†]stood.

10Yahweh nullifies the counsel of the nations;

He frustrates the thoughts of the peoples.

11The counsel of Yahweh stands forever,

The thoughts of His heart from generation to generation.

12Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh,

The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.

13Yahweh looks from heaven;

He sees all the sons of men;

14From the place of His habitation He gazes

On all the inhabitants of the earth,

15He who forms [†]the hearts of them all,

He who understands all their works.

16The king is not saved by a mighty army;

A warrior is not delivered by great strength.

17A horse is a false hope for salvation;

Nor does it provide escape to anyone by its great strength.

18Behold, the eye of Yahweh is on those who fear Him,

On those who wait for His lovingkindness,

19To deliver their soul from death

And to keep them alive in famine.

20Our soul is patient for Yahweh;

He is our help and our shield.

21For our heart is glad in Him,

Because we trust in His holy name.

22Let Your lovingkindness, O Yahweh, be upon us,

As we wait for You.

7 A container; some ancient versions in a water skin
9 Or stood forth
15 Or their heart together
