33 Cry out joyfully, O YOU righteous ones, because of Jehovah.+On the part of the upright ones praise is fitting.+ 2 Give thanks to Jehovah on the harp;+On an instrument of ten strings+ make melody to him. 3 Sing to him a new song;+Do YOUR best at playing on the strings along with joyful shouting.+ 4 For the word of Jehovah is upright,+And all his work is in faithfulness.+ 5 He is a lover of righteousness and justice.+With the loving-kindness of Jehovah the earth is filled.+ 6 By the word of Jehovah the heavens themselves were made,+And by the spirit* of his mouth all their army.+ 7 He is gathering as by a dam* the waters of the sea,+Putting in storehouses the surging waters.* 8 Let all [those of] the earth* be in fear of Jehovah.+At him let all the inhabitants of the productive land* be frightened.+ 9 For he himself said, and it came to be;+He himself commanded, and it proceeded to stand so.+ 10 Jehovah himself has broken up the counsel of the nations;+He has thwarted the thoughts of the peoples.+ 11 To time indefinite the very counsel of Jehovah will stand;+The thoughts of his heart are to one generation after another generation.+ 12 Happy is the nation whose God* is Jehovah,+The people whom he has chosen as his inheritance.+ 13 From the heavens Jehovah has looked,+He has seen all the sons of men.*+ 14 From the established place where he dwells*+He has gazed at all those dwelling on the earth. 15 He is forming their hearts all together;*+He is considering all their works.+ 16 There is no king saved by the abundance of military forces;+A mighty man himself is not delivered by the abundance of power.+ 17 The horse is a deception for salvation,+And by the abundance of its vital energy it does not afford escape.+ 18 Look! The eye of Jehovah is toward those fearing him,+To those waiting for his loving-kindness,+ 19 To deliver their soul from death itself,+And to preserve them alive in famine.+ 20 Our very soul has been in expectation of Jehovah.+Our helper and our shield he is.+ 21 For in him our heart rejoices;+For in his holy name we have put our trust.+ 22 Let your loving-kindness, O Jehovah, prove to be upon us,+Even as we have kept waiting for you.+
