God is to be praised for his goodness,
Psalms 33:1 Reioyse in ye LORDE (o ye rightuous) for it becommeth well the iust to be thankfull. Psalms 33:2 Prayse the LORDE with harpe: synge psalmes vnto him with the lute and instrument of ten strynges. Psalms 33:3 Singe him a new songe, yee synge lustely vnto him & with a good corage. Psalms 33:4 For the worde of ye LORDE is true, and all his workes are faithfull. Psalms 33:5 He loueth mercy & iudgment, ye earth is full of the goodnesse of the LORDE
for his power,
Psalms 33:6 By the worde of the LORDE were the heauens made, & all the hoostes of them by ye breth of his mouth. Psalms 33:7 He gathereth ye waters together as it were in a bottell, & laieth vp the depe in secrete. Psalms 33:8 Let all the earth feare the LORDE, and let all them that dwell in the worlde, stode in awe of him. Psalms 33:9 For loke what he sayeth, it is done: and loke what he comaudeth, it stondeth fast. Psalms 33:10 The LORDE bryngeth the councell of the Heithen to naught, and turneth the deuyces of the people. Psalms 33:11 But the coucell of the LORDE endureth, and the thoughtes of his hert from generacion to generacion.
and for his providence.
Psalms 33:12 Blessed are the people that holde the LORDE for their God, & blessed are the folke whom he hath chosen to be his heretage. Psalms 33:13 The LORDE loketh downe from heauen, & beholdeth all the children of men: Psalms 33:14 from his stronge seate he considreth all them yt dwell in the worlde. Psalms 33:15 He only hath fashioned all the hertes of them, & knoweth all their workes. Psalms 33:16 A kynge is not helped by his owne greate hoost, nether is a giaunte saued thorow the might of his owne stregth. Psalms 33:17 A horse is but a vayne thynge to saue a man, it is not the power of his stregth that can delyuer him. Psalms 33:18 Beholde, the eye of the LORDE loketh vnto them that feare him, & put their trust in his mercy. Psalms 33:19 That he maye delyuer their soules from death, and to fede them in the deare tyme.
Confidence is to be placed in God.
Psalms 33:20 Let oure soule paciently abyde the LORDE, for he is oure helpe and shilde. Psalms 33:21 So shal oure herte reioyse in him, because we haue hoped in his holy name. Psalms 33:22 Let thy mercifull kyndnesse (o LORDE) be vpon vs, like as we put oure trust in the.
