God is to be praised for his goodness,
Psalms 33:1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: [for] praise is comely for the upright. Psalms 33:2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery [and] an instrument of ten strings. Psalms 33:3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. Psalms 33:4 For the word of the LORD [is] right; and all his works [are done] in truth. Psalms 33:5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
for his power,
Psalms 33:6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. Psalms 33:7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Psalms 33:8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. Psalms 33:9 For he spake, and it was [done]; he commanded, and it stood fast. Psalms 33:10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. Psalms 33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
and for his providence.
Psalms 33:12 Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the LORD; [and] the people [whom] he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalms 33:13 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. Psalms 33:14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. Psalms 33:15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. Psalms 33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. Psalms 33:17 An horse [is] a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver [any] by his great strength. Psalms 33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD [is] upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; Psalms 33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Confidence is to be placed in God.
Psalms 33:20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he [is] our help and our shield. Psalms 33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. Psalms 33:22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
