33:1 Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous, praise is comely for the upright.

33:2 Give thanks unto the Lord with harp, sing praises unto Him with the psaltery of ten strings.

33:3 Sing unto Him a new song; play skilfully amid shouts of joy.

33:4 For the word of the Lord is upright; and all His work is done in faithfulness.

33:5 He loveth righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.

33:6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

33:7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap; He layeth up the deeps in storehouses.

33:8 Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

33:9 For He spoke, and it was; He commanded, and it stood.

33:10 the Lord bringeth the counsel of the nations to nought; He maketh the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect.

33:11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.

33:12 Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord; the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.

33:13 the Lord looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men;

33:14 From the place of His habitation He looketh intently upon all the inhabitants of the earth;

33:15 He that fashioneth the hearts of them all, that considereth all their doings.

33:16 A king is not saved by the multitude of a host; a mighty man is not delivered by great strength.

33:17 A horse is a vain thing for safety; neither doth it afford escape by its great strength.

33:18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is toward them that fear Him, toward them that wait for His mercy;

33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

33:20 Our soul hath waited for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.

33:21 For in Him doth our heart rejoice, because we have trusted in His holy name.

33:22 Let Thy mercy, O the Lord, be upon us, according as we have waited for Thee.
