Psalm 33:16-22 – YHWH Is Our Help and Our Shield

16A king is not saved by the multitude of a host;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
17A horse is a vain thing for safety;
Neither doth it afford escape by its great strength.
18Behold, the eye of the LORD is toward them that fear Him,
Toward them that wait for His mercy;
19To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.
20Our soul hath waited for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
21For in Him doth our heart rejoice,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
22Let Thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us,
According as we have waited for Thee.


YHWH, our God, you are our only help and our protector.  You are our only deliverer.

Every person, event, or circumstance is just an instrument.

They are just manifestations of your faithful care and love to me.

You are always ready to help me as I await for your faithful care and mercy.

May I stay faithful and trusting to your commands.

I now rejoice deep in my heart because I trust you.

And invoking your holy name invokes for your power and mercy on me.
