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.

詩篇 33

頌讚之歌

1義人啊,
你們要歡然歌頌耶和華,
正直的人理應讚美祂。
你們要彈琴讚美耶和華,
彈奏十弦琴讚美祂。
要為祂唱新歌,
琴聲要美妙,歌聲要嘹亮。
因為耶和華的話是真理,
祂的作為信實可靠。
祂喜愛公平正義,
大地充滿祂的慈愛。

諸天靠祂的話而造,
群星靠祂口中的氣而成。
祂將海水聚在一處,把汪洋收進倉庫。

願普世都敬畏耶和華!
願世人都尊崇祂!
因為祂一發話,就創造了天地;
祂一命令,就立定了萬物。
10 祂挫敗列國的謀算,
攔阻列邦的計劃。
11 祂的計劃永不落空,
祂的旨意萬代長存。
12 尊祂為上帝的邦國有福了!
蒙揀選做祂子民的人有福了!

13 祂從天上俯視人間,
14 從祂的居所察看世上萬民。
15 祂塑造人心,
洞察人的一切行為。

16 君王不能靠兵多取勝,
勇士不能憑力大獲救。
17 靠戰馬取勝實屬妄想,
馬雖力大也不能救人。
18 但耶和華看顧敬畏祂、仰望祂慈愛的人。
19 祂救他們脫離死亡,
保護他們度過饑荒。
20 我們仰望耶和華,
祂是我們的幫助,
是我們的盾牌。
21 我們信靠祂的聖名,
我們的心因祂而充滿喜樂。
22 耶和華啊,我們仰望你,求你向我們施慈愛。
