DAVID | Psalm 33

Good people, cheer God!
Right-living people sound best when praising.

Use guitars to reinforce your Hallelujahs!
Play his praise on a grand piano!

Invent your own new song to him;
give him a trumpet fanfare.

For God’s Word is solid to the core;
everything he makes is sound inside and out.

He loves it when everything fits,
when his world is in plumb-line true.

Earth is drenched
in God’s affectionate satisfaction.

The skies were made by God’s command;
he breathed the word and the stars popped out.

He scooped Sea into his jug,
put Ocean in his keg.

Earth-creatures, bow before God;
world-dwellers-down on your knees!

Here’s why: he spoke and there it was,
in place the moment he said so.

God takes the wind out of Babel pretense,
he shoots down the world’s power-schemes.

God’s plan for the world stands up,
all his designs are made to last.

Blessed is the country with God for God;
blessed are the people he’s put in his will.

From high in the skies God looks around,
he sees all Adam’s brood.

From where he sits
overlooks all us earth-dwellers.

He has shaped each person in turn;
now he watches everything we do.

No king succeeds with a big army alone,
no warrior wins by brute strength.

Horsepower is not the answer;
no one gets by on muscle alone.

Watch this: God’s eye is on those who respect him,
the ones who are looking for his love.

He’s ready to come to their rescue in bad times;
in lean times he keeps body and soul together.

We’re depending on God;
he’s everything we need.

What’s more, our hearts brim with joy
since we’ve taken for our own his holy name.

Love us, God, with all you’ve got-
that’s what we’re depending on.
