God is to be praised for his goodness,
Psalms 33:1 Exult, ye righteous, in Jehovah: praise is comely for the upright. Psalms 33:2 Give thanks unto Jehovah with the harp; sing psalms unto him with the ten-stringed lute. Psalms 33:3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud sound. Psalms 33:4 For the word of Jehovah is right, and all his work is in faithfulness. Psalms 33:5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the loving-kindness 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 storehouses. 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* spoke, and it was [done]; *he* commanded, and it stood fast. Psalms 33:10 Jehovah frustrateth the counsel of the nations; he maketh the thoughts of the peoples of none effect. Psalms 33:11 The counsel of Jehovah standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation.
and for his providence.
Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is Jehovah, the people that he hath chosen for his inheritance! Psalms 33:13 Jehovah looketh from the heavens; 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 who fashioneth the hearts of them all, who considereth all their works. Psalms 33:16 The king is not saved by the multitude of [his] forces; a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. Psalms 33:17 The horse is a vain thing for safety; neither doth he deliver by his great power. Psalms 33:18 Behold, the eye of Jehovah is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his loving-kindness, 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 Jehovah: he is our help and our shield. Psalms 33:21 For in him shall our heart rejoice, because we have confided in his holy name. Psalms 33:22 Let thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, be upon us, according as we have hoped in thee.
