Bible: Ps 33:13-22

33:13 The Lord watches 1  from heaven;

he sees all people. 2 

33:14 From the place where he lives he looks carefully

at all the earth’s inhabitants.

33:15 He is the one who forms every human heart, 3 

and takes note of all their actions.

33:16 No king is delivered by his vast army;

a warrior is not saved by his great might.

33:17 A horse disappoints those who trust in it for victory; 4 

despite its great strength, it cannot deliver.

33:18 Look, the Lord takes notice of his loyal followers, 5 

those who wait for him to demonstrate his faithfulness 6 

33:19 by saving their lives from death 7 

and sustaining them during times of famine. 8 

33:20 We 9  wait for the Lord;

he is our deliverer 10  and shield. 11 

33:21 For our hearts rejoice in him,

for we trust in his holy name.

33:22 May we experience your faithfulness, O Lord, 12 

for 13  we wait for you.
