Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 33:12–22
12Blessèd is the nation whose God | is the Lord,*
the people whom he has chosen as his | heritage!
13The Lord looks down from | heaven;*
he sees all the chil- | dren of man;
14from where he sits enthroned he | looks out*
on all the inhabitants | of the earth,
15he who fashions the hearts | of them all*
and observes | all their deeds.
16The king is not saved by his great | army;*
a warrior is not delivered by his | great strength.
17The war horse is a false hope for sal- | vation,*
and by its great might it cannot | rescue.
18Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who | fear him,*
on those who hope in his | steadfast love,
19that he may deliver their | soul from death*
and keep them alive in | famine.
20Our soul waits | for the Lord;*
he is our help | and our shield.
21For our heart is | glad in him,*
because we trust in his | holy name.
22Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be up- | on us,*
even as we | hope in you.
