Psalms 33



Verses 1-22

Psalm 33 Rejoicing in God

Israel's musicians and singers are called to unite in joyous praise to God (1-3). He is worthy of people's praise because of his faithfulness, seen in all his righteous works (4-5); because of his power, seen in creation and in his irresistible word (6-9); and because of his sovereign control, seen in the history of world events (10-12). God, being perfect in knowledge, sees the uselessness of all those achievements in which people put their trust (13-17).

Above all, God is worthy of people's praise because of the salvation he gives to those who fear him. He gives them life, protection and provision (18-19). All who humbly trust in his mercy will find that their lives develop new qualities of patience, confidence and joy (20-22).
