Amplified Bible

Psalm 33

Praise to the Creator and Preserver.

1Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous ones;
Praise is becoming and appropriate for those who are upright [in heart—those with moral integrity and godly character].

Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre;
Sing praises to Him with the harp of ten strings.

Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully [on the strings] with a loud and joyful sound.

For the word of the Lord is right;
And all His work is done in faithfulness.

He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.


By the word of the Lord were the heavens made,
And all their host by the breath of His mouth.

He gathers the waters of the sea together as in a wineskin;
He puts the deeps in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear and worship the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.
10 
The Lord nullifies the counsel of the nations;
He makes the thoughts and plans of the people ineffective.
11 
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The thoughts and plans of His heart through all generations.
12 
Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.

13 
The Lord looks [down] from heaven;
He sees all the sons of man;
14 
From His dwelling place He looks closely
Upon all the inhabitants of the earth—
15 
He who fashions the hearts of them all,
Who considers and understands all that they do.
16 
The king is not saved by the great size of his army;
A warrior is not rescued by his great strength.
17 
A horse is a false hope for victory;
Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.

18 
Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon those who fear Him [and worship Him with awe-inspired reverence and obedience],
On those who hope [confidently] in His compassion and lovingkindness,
19 
To rescue their lives from death
And keep them alive in famine.
20 
We wait [expectantly] for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
21 
For in Him our heart rejoices,
Because we trust [lean on, rely on, and are confident] in His holy name.
22 
Let Your [steadfast] lovingkindness, O Lord, be upon us,
In proportion as we have [a]hoped in You.

Salme 33

Lovsang om Herrens magt og trofasthed

1Råb af glæde, I, der kender Herren.
    Det er godt at prise og lovsynge ham.
Spil en takkesang på lyren,
    skøn musik på den ti-strengede harpe.
Syng en ny sang for Herren,
    spil smukt på lyren og råb af fryd.

For Herrens bud er gode,
    og alt, hvad han gør, er rigtigt.
Han elsker det rette og gode,
    hans nåde mærkes i hele verden.
Da Herren talte, blev himlen skabt,
    alle stjerner blev til på hans ord.
Han samlede vandet, så det blev til hav,
    han dannede et mægtigt vandreservoir.
Hele jorden bør give ham ære,
    alle mennesker bør vise ham respekt.
Et ord fra ham satte verden i gang,
    på hans befaling blev jorden til.
10 Herren ødelægger folkenes planer
    og forhindrer deres mange intriger.
11 Men Herrens planer står fast for evigt,
    hans tanker bliver altid til virkelighed.
12 Lykkeligt er det folk, som har Herren til Gud,
    dem han valgte som sit ejendomsfolk.

13 Herren ser ned fra Himlen,
    han ser på alle menneskene.
14 Fra sin bolig iagttager han dem alle,
    han holder øje med verdens befolkning.
15 Det er ham, der har skabt dem alle,
    han kender deres motiver og handlinger.
16 En konge sejrer ikke ved sin store hær,
    en helt vinder ikke ved sin egen styrke.
17 Stridsheste kan være nok så stærke,
    det er dog ikke dem, der giver sejren.
18 Men de, der ærer Herren og stoler på ham,
    oplever hans trofasthed og nåde.
19 Han redder dem fra døden
    og hjælper dem i hungersnøden.
20 Vi venter på, at Herren griber ind,
    det er ham, der hjælper og beskytter os.

21 Det er en stor glæde at kende ham,
    vi stoler på hans magt og herlighed.
22 Herre, vis os din trofaste kærlighed,
    til dig alene har vi sat vores håb.
