Psalm 33
King James BibleNew Living Translation
1Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.1Let the godly sing for joy to the LORD; it is fitting for the pure to praise him.
2Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.2Praise the LORD with melodies on the lyre; make music for him on the ten-stringed harp.
3Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.3Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy.
4For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.4For the word of the LORD holds true, and we can trust everything he does.
5He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.5He loves whatever is just and good; the unfailing love of the LORD fills the earth.
6By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.6The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born.
7He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.7He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
8Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.8Let the whole world fear the LORD, and let everyone stand in awe of him.
9For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.9For when he spoke, the world began! It appeared at his command.
10The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.10The LORD frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes.
11The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.11But the LORD’s plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken.
12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.12What joy for the nation whose God is the LORD, whose people he has chosen as his inheritance.
13The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.13The LORD looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race.
14From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.14From his throne he observes all who live on the earth.
15He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.15He made their hearts, so 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.16The best-equipped army cannot save a king, nor is great strength enough to save a warrior.
17An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.17Don’t count on your warhorse to give you victory— for all its strength, it cannot save you.
18Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;18But the LORD watches over those who fear him, those who rely on his unfailing love.
19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.19He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine.
20Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.20We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield.
21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.21In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
22Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.22Let your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our hope is in you alone.
