Psalm 33
King James BibleChristian Standard Bible
1Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.1Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous ones; praise from the upright is beautiful.
2Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.2Praise the LORD with the lyre; make music to him with a ten-stringed harp.
3Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.3Sing a new song to him; play skillfully on the strings, with a joyful shout.
4For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.4For the word of the LORD is right, and all his work is trustworthy.
5He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.5He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the LORD's unfailing love.
6By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.6The heavens were made by the word of the LORD, and all the stars, by the breath of his mouth.
7He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.7He gathers the water of the sea into a heap; he puts the depths into storehouses.
8Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.8Let the whole earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.9For he spoke, and it came into being; he commanded, and it came into existence.
10The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.10The LORD frustrates the counsel of the nations; he thwarts the plans of the peoples.
11The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.11The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of his heart from generation to generation.
12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.12Happy is the nation whose God is the LORD--the people he has chosen to be his own possession!
13The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.13The LORD looks down from heaven; he observes everyone.
14From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.14He gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth from his dwelling place.
15He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.15He forms the hearts of them all; he considers all their works.
16There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.16A king is not saved by a large army; a warrior will not be rescued by great strength.
17An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.17The horse is a false hope for safety; it provides no escape by its great power.
18Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;18But look, the LORD keeps his eye on those who fear him--those who depend on his faithful love
19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.19to rescue them from death and to keep them alive in famine.
20Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.20We wait for the LORD; he is our help and shield.
21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.21For our hearts rejoice in him because we trust in his holy name.
22Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.22May your faithful love rest on us, LORD, for we put our hope in you.
