Tehilim Chapter 33

tehilim 016


1. Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous; for praise befits the upright.
2. Praise the Lord with a lyre; make music to him with the harp of ten strings.
3. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully with loud shouts.
4. For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in faithfulness.
5. He loves righteousness and judgment; the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
6. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
7. He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap; he lays up the depths in storehouses.
8. Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9. For he spoke, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
10. The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to naught; he frustrates the schemes of the people.
11. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12. Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.
13. The Lord looks down from heaven; he beholds all the sons of men.
14. From the place of his habitation he looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
15. He fashions their hearts alike; he considers all their deeds.
16. A king is not saved by a great army; a mighty man is not saved by great strength.
17. A horse is a vain thing for safety; nor shall he save any by his great strength.
18. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon those who fear him, upon those who hope in his loving kindness;
19. To save their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20. Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
21. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
22. Let your loving kindness, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.
