Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 33 Bible commentary...
God to be praised. (1-11) His people encouraged by his power. (12-22)
1-11 Holy joy is the heart and soul of praise, and that is here pressed upon the righteous. Thankful praise is the breath and language of holy joy. Religious songs are proper expressions of thankful praise. Every endowment we possess, should be employed with all our skill and earnestness in God's service. His promises are all wise and good. His word is right, and therefore we are only in the right when we agree with it. His works are all done in truth. He is the righteous Lord, therefore loveth righteousness. What a pity it is that this earth, which is so full of the proofs and instances of God's goodness, should be so empty of his praises; and that of the multitudes who live upon his bounty, there are so few who live to his glory! What the Lord does, he does to purpose; it stands fast. He overrules all the counsels of men, and makes them serve his counsels; even that is fulfilled, which to us is most surprising, the eternal counsel of God, nor can any thing prevent its coming to pass.
12-22 All the motions and operations of the souls of men, which no mortals know but themselves, God knows better than they do. Their hearts, as well as their times, are all in his hand; he formed the spirit of each man within him. All the powers of the creature depend upon him, and are of no account, of no avail at all, without him. If we make God's favour sure towards us, then we need not fear whatever is against us. We are to give to him the glory of his special grace. All human devices for the salvation of our souls are vain; but the Lord's watchful eye is over those whose conscientious fear of his name proceeds from a believing hope in his mercy. In difficulties they shall be helped; in dangers they shall not receive any real damage. Those that fear God and his wrath, must hope in God and his mercy; for there is no flying from him, but by flying to him. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us; let us always have the comfort and benefit, not according to our merits, but according to the promise which thou hast in thy word given to us, and according to the faith thou hast by thy Spirit and grace wrought in us.
Timothy Wayne George's Psalms Chapter 33 comment about verse 12 on 3/05/2013, 7:45am...
Happy is the nation, whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen for His own inheritance. America was built on the foundation of its Christian faith, and we have blessed Israel. God has blessed America for that, as He told Abraham I will bless those that bless thee, and curse those that curse thee. We pray that America will continue to stand with Israel, in these days of apostasy. Until the Lord shall come, Israel will be a burdensome stone to all nations. Only the Prince of Peace will solve the problems in the Middle East. Even so come Lord Jesus!!!

There is only one way to have an abundant life. There is only one way to be delivered from all the things that the enemy of our souls wants to do to us. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.The eye of the LORD is upon them that fear HIM. GOD is the only one, able to deliver those that fear HIM and Trust in HIM. The GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, will deliver us if we have the faith and trust like they did. The eyes of the LORD goeth to and fro seeking those who seek after HIM
