Psalm 33:10 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
Now beings the body of the song. The summons to praise God is supported (1) by a setting forth of His praiseworthiness
(Note: We have adopted the word "praiseworthiness" for the sake of conciseness of expression, in order to avoid an awkward periphrasis, in the sense of being worthy to be praised. - Tr.)
(a) as the God of revelation in the kingdom of Grace. His word is ישׂר, upright in intention, and, without becoming in any way whatever untrue to itself, straightway fulfilling itself. His every act is an act in אמוּנה, truth, which verifies the truth of His word, and one which accomplishes itself. On אהב, equivalent to אהב הוּא, vid., Psalm 7:10; Psalm 22:29. צדקה is righteousness as conduct; משׁפּט is right as a rule of judgment and a state or condition. חסד is an accusative, as in Psalm 119:64 : misericordia Domini plena est terra (the introit for Misercordias Sunday or the second Sunday after Easter).

When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish.
Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand.
Take counsel together, but it will come to nothing; speak a word, but it will not stand, for God is with us.
and the spirit of the Egyptians within them will be emptied out, and I will confound their counsel; and they will inquire of the idols and the sorcerers, and the mediums and the necromancers;
who frustrates the signs of liars and makes fools of diviners, who turns wise men back and makes their knowledge foolish,
