God is to be praised for his goodness,
Psalms 33:1 Rejoice in Jehovah, O ye righteous: Praise is comely for the upright. Psalms 33:2 Give thanks unto Jehovah with the harp: Sing praises unto him with the psaltery 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 Jehovah is right; And all his work is [done] in faithfulness. Psalms 33:5 He loveth righteousness and justice: The earth is full of the lovingkindness of Jehovah.
for his power,
Psalms 33:6 By the word of Jehovah 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 a heap: He layeth up the deeps in store-houses. Psalms 33:8 Let all the earth fear Jehovah: 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 Jehovah bringeth the counsel of the nations to nought; He maketh the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect. Psalms 33:11 The counsel of Jehovah standeth fast for ever, The thoughts of his heart to all generations.
and for his providence.
Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah, The people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalms 33:13 Jehovah looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men; Psalms 33:14 From the place of his habitation he looketh forth Upon all the inhabitants of the earth, Psalms 33:15 He that fashioneth the hearts of them all, That considereth all their works. Psalms 33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of a host: A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. Psalms 33:17 A horse is a vain thing for safety; Neither doth he deliver any by his great power. Psalms 33:18 Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him, Upon them that hope in his lovingkindness; 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 hath waited for Jehovah: 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 lovingkindness, O Jehovah, be upon us, According as we have hoped in thee.
