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

1神を敬う人々の喜びが、
賛美の声となってわき上がりますように。
主をほめたたえるのは良いことです。
竪琴と十弦の琴で、
喜びにあふれる賛美の調べをかなでなさい。
新しい賛美歌を作り、巧みにハープをかき鳴らして、
喜びの歌を歌いなさい。

主のことばには偽りがなく、
その行為にも裏切りは決してありません。
主はすべて正しいこと、良いことを愛しておられ、
地上はその優しい愛で潤っています。
あの星をちりばめた天空も、
主のおことばひとつで造られました。
神様は海を造り、水を注がれました。
全世界の人は、老いも若きも、男も女も、
恐れかしこみながら主の前に立ちなさい。
主のおことばで、この世界は始まったからです。
10 主はひと息で、反抗的な国々の策略を吹き消されます。
11 主の計画はいつまでも不滅で、
主のお考えはいつの時代にも揺るぎません。

12 主を信じる民は幸せです。
主から選ばれた民だからです。
13-15 人の心を造られた主は、
天の住まいから全人類を見下ろし、
一人一人の行動をつぶさに眺めておられます。
16-17 最強の軍備を誇る軍隊でも、
王を救えるわけではありません。
力だけでは、誰ひとり救うことはできません。
勇ましい軍馬も、勝利を保証してはくれません。
力が救いとはならないのです。
18-19 しかし主の目線は、主を信じて従い、
その変わらない愛に頼る者に注がれます。
ききんのときにも、餓死することはありません。
20 頼ることができるのは主おひとりです。
主が盾となって守ってくださいます。
21 主に信頼する私たちに、喜びがあふれます。
22 主よ、尽きることのない愛で包んでください。
あなただけが望みなのです。
