Psalm 33


Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous ones;

praise from the upright is beautiful.z

Praise the Lord with the lyre;

make music to him with a ten-stringed harp.aa

Sing a new song to him;ab

play skillfully on the strings, with a joyful shout.ac

For the word of the Lord is right,

and all his work is trustworthy.ad

He loves righteousness and justice;ae

the earth is full of the Lord’s unfailing love.af

The heavens were made by the word of the Lord,ag

and all the stars, by the breath of his mouth.ah

He gathers the water of the sea into a heap;D

he puts the depths into storehouses.ai

Let the whole earth fear the Lord;

let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.a

For he spoke, and it came into being;

he commanded, and it came into existence.b

10 The Lord frustrates the counsel of the nations;

he thwarts the plans of the peoples.c

11 The counsel of the Lord stands forever,

the plans of his heart from generation to generation.d

12 Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord

the people he has chosen to be his own possession!e

13 The Lord looks down from heaven;

he observes everyone.f

14 He gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth

from his dwelling place.g

15 He forms the hearts of them all;

he considers all their works.h

16 A king is not saved by a large army;

a warrior will not be rescued by great strength.i

17 The horse is a false hope for safety;

it provides no escape by its great power.j

18 But look, the Lord keeps his eye on those who fear him—

those who depend on his faithful lovek

1to rescue them from death

and to keep them alive in famine.l

20 We wait for the Lord;m

he is our help and shield.n

21 For our hearts rejoice in himo

because we trust in his holy name.p

22 May your faithful love rest on us, Lord,

for we put our hope in you.q


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
