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.

Salmos 33

1Canten al Señor con alegría, ustedes los justos;
    es propio de los íntegros alabar al Señor.
Alaben al Señor al son del arpa;
    entonen alabanzas con el decacordio.
Cántenle una canción nueva;
    toquen con destreza,
    y den voces de alegría.

La palabra del Señor es justa;
    fieles son todas sus obras.
El Señor ama la justicia y el derecho;
    llena está la tierra de su amor.

Por la palabra del Señor fueron creados los cielos,
    y por el soplo de su boca, las estrellas.
Él recoge en un cántaro el agua de los mares,
    y junta en vasijas los océanos.
Tema toda la tierra al Señor;
    hónrenlo todos los pueblos del mundo;
porque él habló, y todo fue creado;
    dio una orden, y todo quedó firme.
10 El Señor frustra los planes de las naciones;
    desbarata los designios de los pueblos.
11 Pero los planes del Señor quedan firmes para siempre;
    los designios de su mente son eternos.

12 Dichosa la nación cuyo Dios es el Señor,
    el pueblo que escogió por su heredad.
13 El Señor observa desde el cielo
    y ve a toda la humanidad;
14 él contempla desde su trono
    a todos los habitantes de la tierra.
15 Él es quien formó el corazón de todos,
    y quien conoce a fondo todas sus acciones.
16 No se salva el rey por sus muchos soldados,
    ni por su mucha fuerza se libra el valiente.
17 Vana esperanza de victoria es el caballo;
    a pesar de su mucha fuerza no puede salvar.
18 Pero el Señor cuida de los que le temen,
    de los que esperan en su gran amor;
19 él los libra de la muerte,
    y en épocas de hambre los mantiene con vida.

20 Esperamos confiados en el Señor;
    él es nuestro socorro y nuestro escudo.
21 En él se regocija nuestro corazón,
    porque confiamos en su santo nombre.
22 Que tu gran amor, Señor, nos acompañe,
    tal como lo esperamos de ti.
