33 Shout joyfully, you righteous ones, because of Jehovah.+
It is fitting for the upright to praise him.
2 Give thanks to Jehovah with the harp;
Sing praises* to him with a ten-stringed instrument.
3 Sing to him a new song;+
Play skillfully on the strings, along with shouts of joy.
4 For the word of Jehovah is upright,+
And everything he does is trustworthy.
5 He loves righteousness and justice.+
The earth is filled with Jehovah’s loyal love.+
6 By the word of Jehovah the heavens were made,+
And by the spirit* of his mouth everything in them.*
7 He gathers the seawaters like a dam;+
He puts the surging waters in storehouses.
8 Let the whole earth fear Jehovah.+
Let the inhabitants of the productive land be in awe of him.
9 For he spoke, and it came to be;+
He commanded, and it stood firm.+
10 Jehovah has frustrated the schemes* of the nations;+
He has thwarted the plans* of the peoples.+
11 But the decisions* of Jehovah will stand forever;+
The thoughts of his heart are from generation to generation.
12 Happy is the nation whose God is Jehovah,+
The people he has chosen as his own possession.+
13 Jehovah looks down from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.+
14 From his place of residence,
He gazes on the inhabitants of the earth.
15 He is the one forming the hearts of all;
He examines all their works.+
16 No king is saved by a large army;+
A mighty man is not saved by his great power.+
17 The horse is a false hope for salvation;*+
Its great strength does not ensure escape.
18 Look! The eye of Jehovah watches over those fearing him,+
Those waiting for his loyal love,
19 To rescue them* from death
And to keep them alive during famine.+
20 We are* in expectation of Jehovah.
He is our helper and our shield.+
21 Our hearts rejoice in him,
For we trust in his holy name.+
22 May your loyal love rest upon us, O Jehovah,+
While we keep waiting for you.+
