Discover Psalm 33 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous;
praise is beautiful to the upright.
Shout to the Lord with a harp;
Sing with psaltery and lyre.
Sing to him a new song;
Play skilfully with shouting.
He loves uprightness and justice;
the earth is filled with the Lord’s mercy.
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made;
and all their hosts, by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;
he deposits its depths.
All the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world tremble before him,
because he spoke, and it was done;
he commanded, and everything existed.
Jehovah nullifies the counsel of the nations,
and frustrates the schemes of the peoples.
The counsel of the Lord will stand forever;
the designs of his heart, for all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people whom he has chosen as his inheritance.
The Lord looks down from heaven;
he saw all the sons of men.
From his dwelling place he looked
upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
He formed the hearts of them all;
he understands all his works.
The king is not saved by the multitude of the army,
nor the mighty escape by the great force.
Vain to be saved is the horse;
The greatness of his strength no one will be able to deliver.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
on those who hope in his mercy,
to deliver their souls from death
and to give them life in times of famine.
Our soul waits for the Lord;
He’s our help and shield.
Therefore our hearts will rejoice in him,
because we have trusted in his holy name.
Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us,
as we hope in you.
