Bible: Psalms 33:6-12

33:6 By the Lord’s decree 1  the heavens were made;

by a mere word from his mouth all the stars in the sky were created. 2 

33:7 He piles up the water of the sea; 3 

he puts the oceans 4  in storehouses.

33:8 Let the whole earth fear 5  the Lord!

Let all who live in the world stand in awe of him!

33:9 For he spoke, and it 6  came into existence,

he issued the decree, 7  and it stood firm.

33:10 The Lord frustrates 8  the decisions of the nations;

he nullifies the plans 9  of the peoples.

33:11 The Lord’s decisions stand forever;

his plans abide throughout the ages. 10 

33:12 How blessed 11  is the nation whose God is the Lord,

the people whom he has chosen to be his special possession. 12
