Psalm 33
King James BibleNew American Standard Bible 1995
1Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.1Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones; Praise is becoming to the upright.
2Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.2Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings.
3Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.3Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy.
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 work is done in faithfulness.
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 lovingkindness 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, And by the breath of His mouth all their host.
7He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.7He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
8Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.8Let all the 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 was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
10The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.10The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates 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.12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
13The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.13The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men;
14From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.14From His dwelling place He looks out On all the inhabitants of the earth,
15He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.15He who fashions the hearts of them all, He who understands all their works.
16There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.16The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength.
17An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.17A horse is a false hope for victory; Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.
18Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;18Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.19To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine.
20Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.20Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield.
21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.21For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name.
22Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.22Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us, According as we have hoped in You.
