Psalms 33

1 Rejoice in יהוה, O you righteous; for praise is comely for the upright.

2 Praise יהוה with harp; sing unto Him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.

3 Sing unto Him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

4 For the word of יהוה is right; and all His works are done in truth.

5 He loveth righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness of יהוה.

6 By the word of יהוה were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap; He layeth up the depth in storehouses.

8 Let all the earth fear יהוה; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

9 For He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.

10 יהוה bringeth the counsel of the nations to nothing; He maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

11 The counsel of יהוה standeth forever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God (Elohim) is יהוה; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.

13 יהוה looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men.

14 From the place of His habitation He looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; He considereth all their works.

16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an army; a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.

17 A horse is a vain thing for safety; neither shall He deliver any by His great strength.

18 Behold, the eye of יהוה is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy;

19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

20 Our soul waiteth for יהוה; He is our help and our shield.

21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.

22 Let Your mercy, O יהוה, be upon us, according as we hope in You.
