33:1  Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright.

33:2  Praise the LORD with the lyre, make melody to him with the harp of ten strings!

33:3  Sing to him a new song, play skilfully on the strings, with loud shouts.

33:4  For the word of the LORD is upright; and all his work is done in faithfulness.

33:5  He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.

33:6  By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all their host by the breath of his mouth.

33:7  He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle; he put the deeps in storehouses.

33:8  Let all the earth fear the LORD, let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!

33:9  For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood forth.

33:10  The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nought; he frustrates the plans of the peoples.

33:11  The counsel of the LORD stands for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

33:12  Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!

33:13  The LORD looks down from heaven, he sees all the sons of men;

33:14  from where he sits enthroned he looks forth on all the inhabitants of the earth,

33:15  he who fashions the hearts of them all, and observes all their deeds.

33:16  A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength.

33:17  The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save.

33:18  Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love,

33:19  that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine.

33:20  Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and shield.

33:21  Yea, our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name.

33:22  Let thy steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in thee.
