Psalm 33:17
Context
Praise is Fitting for the Upright

1Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. 2Praise the LORD with harp: sing to him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. 3Sing to him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise. 4For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. 5He loves righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. 6By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7He gathers the waters of the sea together as an heap: he lays up the depth in storehouses. 8Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9For he spoke, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. 10The LORD brings the counsel of the heathen to nothing: he makes the devices of the people of none effect. 11The counsel of the LORD stands for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance. 13The LORD looks from heaven; he beholds all the sons of men. 14From the place of his habitation he looks on all the inhabitants of the earth. 15He fashions their hearts alike; he considers all their works. 16There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. 17An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. 18Behold, the eye of the LORD is on them that fear him, on them that hope in his mercy; 19To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. 20Our soul waits for the LORD: he is our help and our shield. 21For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name. 22Let your mercy, O LORD, be on us, according as we hope in you.
