Psalm 33 [34] is another of my favorites. It's a little long to reproduce here, but here are the first six of the fifteen stanzas translated in my book, "Bible Wisdom: PSALMS of Praise & Power". This book is now available in Kindle, NOOK, Apple, etc., editions for only $2.99 or $3.


 

I will always thank the Lord God

I will always thank the Lord God.

 

I will bless Him and shout His praises at all times.

 

My soul will exult in the Lord!

 

 

May all who are downcast and oppressed

 

hear my words of praise. May they radiate joy

 

as they lift up their hearts and rejoice!

 

Come, magnify the Lord with me!

 

 

Yes, let us proclaim His greatness together,

 

and jointly praise His name!

 

 

Diligently, I sought the Lord God.

 

Swiftly, He answered me

 

and rescued me from all the perils,

 

dangers and afflictions with which I was surrounded.

 

 

So, look to Him all you who are heavily laden

 

and your burdens will be lightened.

 

You will never have cause to be ashamed

 

if you draw near to the Lord God!

 

 

This poor man cried out to Him!

 

And the Lord God heard my cry

 

and freed me from all my troubles!

My faith has seen me through many difficult times. Blessings surround all of us if we only open our eyes.

Reviewed by John Domino 8/13/2011
John, Taste and See That The Lord is Good has encouraging words for discouraging times. Not discouraging for me, for the Father has taught me to stray from the ways of the flesh. Following His ways I found peace, joy, hope and comfort beyond measure. JMD
