33:1Rejoice in Jehovah, O ye righteous:
Praise is comely for the upright.
33:2Give thanks unto Jehovah with the harp:
Sing praises unto him with the psaltery of ten strings.
Play skilfully with a loud noise.
33:4For the word of Jehovah is right;
And all his work is done in faithfulness.
33:5He loveth righteousness and justice:
The earth is full of the lovingkindness of Jehovah.
33:6By the word of Jehovah were the heavens made,
And all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
33:7He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap:
He layeth up the deeps in store-houses.
33:8Let all the earth fear Jehovah:
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
33:9For he spake, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.
33:10Jehovah bringeth the counsel of the nations to nought;
He maketh the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect.
33:11The counsel of Jehovah standeth fast for ever,
The thoughts of his heart to all generations.
33:12Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah,
The people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
33:13Jehovah looketh from heaven;
He beholdeth all the sons of men;
33:14From the place of his habitation he looketh forth
Upon all the inhabitants of the earth,
33:15He that fashioneth the hearts of them all,
That considereth all their works.
33:16There is no king saved by the multitude of a host:
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
33:17A horse is a vain thing for safety;
Neither doth he deliver any by his great power.
33:18Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him,
Upon them that hope in his lovingkindness;
33:19To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.
33:20Our soul hath waited for Jehovah:
He is our help and our shield.
33:21For our heart shall rejoice in him,
Because we have trusted in his holy name.
33:22Let thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, be upon us,
According as we have hoped in thee.
