Psalm 33
King James BibleInternational Standard Version
1Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.1Rejoice in the LORD, righteous ones; for the praise of the upright is beautiful.
2Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.2With the lyre, give thanks to the LORD; with the ten stringed harp, play music to him;
3Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.3with a new song, sing to him; with shouts of joy, play skillfully.
4For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.4For the word of the LORD is upright; and all his works are done in faithfulness.
5He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.5He loves righteousness and justice; the world is filled with the gracious love of the LORD.
6By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.6By the word of the LORD the heavens were made; all the heavenly bodies 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 gathered the oceans into a single place; he put the deep water into storehouses.
8Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.8Let all the world 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.9because he spoke and it came to be, because he commanded, it stood firm.
10The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.10The LORD makes void the counsel of nations; he frustrates the plans of peoples.
11The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.11But the LORD's counsel stands firm forever, the plans in his mind for all generations.
12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.12How blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he has chosen as his own inheritance.
13The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.13When the LORD looks down from heaven, he observes every human being.
14From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.14From his dwelling place, he looks down on all the inhabitants of the earth.
15He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.15He formed the hearts of them all; he understands everything they do.
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 mighty soldier is not delivered by his great strength.
17An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.17It is vain to trust in a horse for deliverance, even with its great strength, it cannot deliver.
18Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;18Indeed, the LORD watches those who fear him; those who trust in his gracious love
19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.19to deliver them from death; to keep them alive in times of famine.
20Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.20We wait on the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.21Indeed, our heart will rejoice in him, because we have placed our trust in his holy name.
22Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.22LORD, may your gracious love be upon us, even as we hope in you.
