1 (33-1) <For David, when he changed his countenance before Achimelech, who dismissed him, and he went his way.> (33-2) I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall be always in my mouth. 1 I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
2 (33-3) In the Lord shall my soul be praised: let the meek hear and rejoice. 2 My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.

15 (33-16) The eyes of the Lord are upon the just: and his ears unto their prayers. 15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry;

17 (33-18) The just cried, and the Lord heard them: and delivered them out of all their troubles. 17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
18 (33-19) The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit. 18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
19 (33-20) Many are the afflictions of the just; but out of them all will the Lord deliver them. 19 A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all;
20 (33-21) The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit. 20 he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
21 (33-22) The death of the wicked is very evil: and they that hate the just shall be guilty. 21 Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned.
22 (33-23) The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall offend. 22 The LORD redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.
