The Greatness and Goodness of God
Rejoice in the Lord…Praise befits the upright. – For the Word of the Lord is upright and all His work is done in faithfulness. God loves righteousness and justice, the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.
By the Word of the Lord the heavens were made and all their host by the breath of His mouth. God gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle, He put the deeps in storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the Lord, let all inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For God spoke and it came to be, He commanded and it stood firm.
The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing, He frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.
Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage. The Lord looks down from heaven, He sees all humankind. From where He sits enthroned He watches all the inhabitants of the earth–He who fashions the hearts of them all and observes all their deeds.
A king is not saved by his great army, a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. The war horse is a vain hope for victory and by its great might it cannot save.
Truly the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His steadfast love, to deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the Lord, He is our help and shield. Our heart is glad in Him because we trust in His Holy name.
Let Your steadfast love O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you. –Psalm33:1, 4-22
