Psalm 33 King James Version

Praise to the Creator and Preserver

33 Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. 2  Praise the Lord 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 the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. 5  He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness [1] of the Lord. 6  By the word of the Lord 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 an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. 8  Let all the earth fear the Lord: 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  The Lord bringeth [2] the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. 11  The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all [3] generations.

12  Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. 13  The Lord 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 host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17  An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. 18  Behold, the eye of the Lord 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 the Lord: 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 thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
