God is to be praised for his goodness,
Psalms 33:1 A psalm for David. Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just: praise becometh the upright. Psalms 33:2 Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings. Psalms 33:3 Sing to him a new canticle, sing well unto him with a loud noise. Psalms 33:4 For the word of the Lord is right, and all his works are done with faithfulness. Psalms 33:5 He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.
for his power,
Psalms 33:6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were established; and all the power of them by the spirit of his mouth: Psalms 33:7 Gathering together the waters of the sea, as in a vessel; laying up the depths in storehouses. Psalms 33:8 Let all the earth fear the Lord, and let all the inhabitants of the world be in awe of him. Psalms 33:9 For he spoke and they were made: he commanded and they were created. Psalms 33:10 The Lord bringeth to nought the counsels of nations; and he rejecteth the devices of people, and casteth away the counsels of princes. Psalms 33:11 But 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: the people whom he hath chosen for his inheritance. Psalms 33:13 The Lord hath looked from heaven: he hath beheld all the sons of men. Psalms 33:14 From his habitation which he hath prepared, he hath looked upon all that dwell on the earth. Psalms 33:15 He who hath made the hearts of every one of them: who understandeth all their works. Psalms 33:16 The king is not saved by a great army: nor shall the giant be saved by his own great strength. Psalms 33:17 Vain is the horse for safety: neither shall he be saved by the abundance of his strength. Psalms 33:18 Behold the eyes of the Lord are on them that fear him: and on them that hope in his mercy. Psalms 33:19 To deliver their souls from death; and feed them in famine.
Confidence is to be placed in God.
Psalms 33:20 Our soul waiteth for the Lord: for he is our helper and protector. Psalms 33:21 For in him our heart shall rejoice: and in his holy name we have trusted. Psalms 33:22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we have hoped in thee.
