Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 33



Verses 1-22

Psalm 33

The Future Praise of Jehovah

1. The call to praise Jehovah (Psalms 33:1-3)

2. His praise as the Creator (Psalms 33:4-9)

3. His praise of His governmental dealings (Psalms 33:10-17)

4. His praise as the Keeper and Deliverer of the Righteous (Psalms 33:18-22)

What the last verse of the preceding Psalm exhorts to shout for joy, is in this Psalm more fully unfolded. Such praise the Lord has not yet received, it looks forward to millennial times when all earth fears the Lord and all the inhabitants stand in awe of Him (Psalms 33:8). Now they oppose and defy Him and His Word. Then the counsel of the nations will be brought to nought and His people Israel, His own nation, will be blessed. The last verse is a prayer that His mercy may be bestowed upon His people Israel, who hope in Him.
