New International Version

Psalm 33

Psalm 33

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
    it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
    make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song;
    play skillfully, and shout for joy.

For the word of the Lord is right and true;
    he is faithful in all he does.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
    the earth is full of his unfailing love.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
    their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea into jars[a];
    he puts the deep into storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the Lord;
    let all the people of the world revere him.
For he spoke, and it came to be;
    he commanded, and it stood firm.

10 The Lord foils the plans of the nations;
    he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
11 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
    the purposes of his heart through all generations.

12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
    the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down
    and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches
    all who live on earth—
15 he who forms the hearts of all,
    who considers everything they do.

16 No king is saved by the size of his army;
    no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
    despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
    on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death
    and keep them alive in famine.

20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
    for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
    even as we put our hope in you.

诗篇 33

颂赞之歌

1义人啊,
你们要欢然歌颂耶和华,
正直的人理应赞美祂。
你们要弹琴赞美耶和华,
弹奏十弦琴赞美祂。
要为祂唱新歌,
琴声要美妙,歌声要嘹亮。
因为耶和华的话是真理,
祂的作为信实可靠。
祂喜爱公平正义,
大地充满祂的慈爱。

诸天靠祂的话而造,
群星靠祂口中的气而成。
祂将海水聚在一处,把汪洋收进仓库。

愿普世都敬畏耶和华!
愿世人都尊崇祂!
因为祂一发话,就创造了天地;
祂一命令,就立定了万物。
10 祂挫败列国的谋算,
拦阻列邦的计划。
11 祂的计划永不落空,
祂的旨意万代长存。
12 尊祂为上帝的邦国有福了!
蒙拣选做祂子民的人有福了!

13 祂从天上俯视人间,
14 从祂的居所察看世上万民。
15 祂塑造人心,
洞察人的一切行为。

16 君王不能靠兵多取胜,
勇士不能凭力大获救。
17 靠战马取胜实属妄想,
马虽力大也不能救人。
18 但耶和华看顾敬畏祂、仰望祂慈爱的人。
19 祂救他们脱离死亡,
保护他们度过饥荒。
20 我们仰望耶和华,
祂是我们的帮助,
是我们的盾牌。
21 我们信靠祂的圣名,
我们的心因祂而充满喜乐。
22 耶和华啊,我们仰望你,求你向我们施慈爱。
