Psalms 33 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

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.

33:3Sing unto him a new song;

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.
