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.
