"A Deeper Look at the Psalms
Psalm 33:1-11"

In another article, I shared with you one of the techniques I use to study the Psalms.  I would like to share another Chapter of Psalms that I have "reinterpreted".  I decided to do Psalm 33 this week and next week because Psalm 33:3 is the foundational Scripture that Heath Jarvis Ministries is founded on.  I'm spreading this chapter over two articles because it is a little longer (22 verses).  If you have not already read "A Deeper Look at the Psalms - Psalm Chapter 1", I would suggest you do that first, because in it I explain what technique I use in studying Psalms.  It will make this article a little more easy to understand.  Having said that, here's Psalm 33:1-11.

    Psalm 33:1-11 (King James Version)

1)    Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.   
2)    Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto Him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
3)    Sing unto Him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.
4)    For the Word of the Lord is right; and all His works are done in truth.
5)    He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
6)    By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
7)    He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
8)    Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
9)    For He spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
10)  The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought:  He maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
11)  The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.

Psalm 33:1-11 (Heath's Version)

1)    Let out a rejoicing cry or shout or sing aloud unto the Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God all you just, lawful and righteous people. Singing in a clamorously foolish manner until you are beside yourself is suitable and beautiful for those who are straight, upright and pleasing to God, those who meet his requirements, those who fit the bill.
2)    Stretch forth your hands, cast off your burdens, and worship and revere the Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God with the twangy sound of a harp. Gracefully sing and play the lyre or psaltery in much the same way as a gazelle gracefully runs and jumps. Do this also with the chords of an instrument of ten strings.
3)    Take a musical and lyrical stroll with him and wander musically like a traveling merchant by singing and improvising a fresh, brand-new cheerful song. Beat out a tune and make music that is performed well and is skillfully and beautifully crafted and thoroughly and diligently designed to be acceptable and better than others. And do it all loudly as though you were making a clamorous battle cry, or blowing an alarm with a trumpet, or making a high sounding shout of rejoicing.
4)    The spoken words, declarations, matters of business, promises, and advice of the Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God are also straight, upright, and pleasing to God; they meet his requirements and fit the bill. His operations, accomplishments, and all of the things He does are established as trustworthy, faithful, stable, true, and firm with utmost security and fidelity.
5)    He has great love and amorous affection for rightness, justice and prosperity and also for lawful verdicts and orderly sentencing, whether favorable or unfavorable. the earth is full and complete like one who is satisfied after a meal because of the Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God.
6)    The spoken words, declarations, matters of business, promises, and advice of the Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God are what made the sky and outer space. And the mass of His army of soldiers who wait for summoning to be appointed for warfare were made by a violent burst of breath forming words from His mouth.
7)    He gathers together or collects as a heap the individual waters and springs into a roaring sea that is one mound or heap of a wave. He gives or assigns specifically the roaring depth of an abyss to a depository or store house of treasure.
8)    The earth should fully and fearfully revere the terribleness of the Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God. Those that dwell in or are married to this habitable world should stop for awhile just to stand in awe of Him and to assemble fearfully as those nervously and anxiously awaiting battle.
9)    He made a constitution of law and order in which commands, charges, and appointments were given, and they still stand fast and endure as they are still firm and have been forever ordained.
10)  The Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God takes the deliberations, advice, counsel, and purpose of the heathen and Gentile nations and peoples and crushes them similarly to grapes being crushed in a wine press. He takes the plots, fabrications, imaginations, intentions, plans, and contrivances of tribes and even nations of people and disallows them by neutralizing them as being forbidden and refused.
11)  The deliberations, advice, counsel, and purpose of the Self-existent, eternal God and Lord Who is our Redeemer, the most intense and passionate God stand fast and endure as they are still firm and have been forever ordained and are perpetual and without end or beginning. The plots, fabrications, imaginations, intentions, plans, and contrivances that originate in His heart, mind, intellect, will, and wisdom will remain for all generations and all posterity forever.
