God is to be praised for his goodness,
Psalms 33:1 Shout for joy, ye righteous, in Yahweh, To the upright, seemly is praise. Psalms 33:2 Give ye thanks unto Yahweh with the lyre, With a harp of ten strings, make ye music unto him. Psalms 33:3 Sing unto him, a song that is new, With skill, sweep the strings, with loud noise. Psalms 33:4 For right is the word of Yahweh, and, all his work, is in faithfulness: Psalms 33:5 Who loveth righteousness and justice, With the lovingkindness of Yahweh, the earth is full.
for his power,
Psalms 33:6 By the word of Yahweh, the heavens were made, and, by the spirit of his mouth, all their host: Psalms 33:7 Who gathered as into a skin-bottle the waters of the sea, Delivering, into treasuries, the roaring deeps. Psalms 33:8 Let all the earth, stand in awe of Yahweh, Of him, be in dread, all ye inhabitants of the world; Psalms 33:9 For, he, spake, and it was, He, commanded, and it stood forth. Psalms 33:10 Yahweh, hath frustrated the counsel of nations, hath brought to nothing the devices of peoples. Psalms 33:11 The counsel of Yahweh, to times age-abiding, shall stand, The devices of his heart, from generation to generation.
and for his providence.
Psalms 33:12 How happy the nation whose God is, Yahweh, The people he hath chosen as his own inheritance! Psalms 33:13 Out of the heavens, hath Yahweh looked, He hath seen all the sons of men: Psalms 33:14 Out of his settled place of abode, hath he fixed his gaze on all the inhabitants of the earth: Psalms 33:15 Who fashioneth their heart all together, Who understandeth all their doings. Psalms 33:16 Not a king, can be saved by greatness of force, nor, hero, deliver himself by greatness of strength: Psalms 33:17 A deception, is the horse, for victory, and, by his great strength, shall he not deliver. Psalms 33:18 Lo! the eye of Yahweh, is toward them who revere him, unto such as are waiting for his lovingkindness: Psalms 33:19 To rescue, from death, their soul, and to keep them alive in famine.
Confidence is to be placed in God.
Psalms 33:20 Our own soul, hath waited for Yahweh, Our help and our shield, is he! Psalms 33:21 For, in him, shall our heart rejoice, For, in his holy Name, have we trusted. Psalms 33:22 Be thy lovingkindness, O Yahweh, upon us, According as we have waited for thee.
