Psalm 33

33
The Steadfast Love of the Lord
1 # [Ps. 32:11] Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!
# Ps. 147:1 Praise befits the upright.
2Give thanks to the Lord with the #Ps. 71:22 lyre;
make melody to him with #Ps. 71:22 the harp of #Ps. 144:9ten strings!
3Sing to him #Ps. 40:3; 96:1; Isa. 42:10a new song;
play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
4For the word of the Lord is upright,
and all his work is done in #Ps. 119:75faithfulness.
5He #Ps. 11:7; 36:5, 6; 45:7; 89:14 loves righteousness and justice;
# Ps. 119:64 the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.
6By #Gen. 1:6, 7; Heb. 11:3; 2 Pet. 3:5; [John 1:3] the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
and by #[Job 26:13; Isa. 11:4] the breath of his mouth all #Gen. 2:1their host.
7He gathers the waters of the sea as #Ps. 78:13; Ex. 15:8; Josh. 3:13, 16 a heap;
he #See Job 38:8puts the deeps in storehouses.
8Let all the earth fear the Lord;
let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!
9For #Ps. 148:5, 6; Gen. 1:3; [Ps. 147:15, 18]he spoke, and it came to be;
he commanded, and it stood firm.
10The Lord #Isa. 19:3; Luke 1:51; [2 Sam. 15:34; 17:14; Neh. 4:15; Job 5:12; Isa. 8:10]brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
he frustrates the plans of the peoples.
11 # Prov. 19:21; Isa. 46:10 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
the plans of his heart to all generations.
12 # Ps. 144:15; Deut. 33:29 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people whom he has #Ps. 65:4; Deut. 7:6; [Ex. 19:5]chosen as his heritage!
13The Lord #Job 28:24; See Ps. 11:4looks down from heaven;
he sees all the children of man;
14from #1 Kgs. 8:39, 43, 49 where he sits enthroned he #[Prov. 15:3; Jer. 32:19]looks out
on all the inhabitants of the earth,
15he who fashions the hearts of them all
and observes all their deeds.
16 # [Ps. 44:6] The king is not saved by his great army;
a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.
17 # Ps. 20:7; 147:10; Prov. 21:31; Hos. 1:7 The war horse is a false hope for salvation,
and by its great might it cannot rescue.
18Behold, #Ps. 34:15; Job 36:7; 1 Pet. 3:12 the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
# Ps. 147:11 on those who hope in his steadfast love,
19that he may #[Acts 12:11] deliver their soul from death
and keep them alive in #Ps. 37:19; Job 5:20famine.
20Our soul #Ps. 62:1, 5; 130:6; Isa. 8:17 waits for the Lord;
he is our #Ps. 115:9-11 help and #See Ps. 3:3our shield.
21For our heart is #Zech. 10:7; See Ps. 9:14 glad in him,
because we #See Ps. 11:1trust in his holy name.
22Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.
