Psalm 033

1    Ye righteous, in the Lord rejoice;

          it comely is and right,

     That upright men, with thankful voice,

          should praise the Lord of might.

2    Praise God with harp, and unto him

          sing with the psaltery;

     Upon a ten-string’d instrument

          make ye sweet melody.

3    A new song to him sing, and play

          with loud noise skilfully;

4    For right is God’s word, all his works

          are done in verity.

5    To judgment and to righteousness

          a love he beareth still;

     The loving-kindness of the Lord

          the earth throughout doth fill.

6    The heavens by the word of God

          did their beginning take;

     And by the breathing of his mouth

          he all their hosts did make.

7    The waters of the seas he brings

          together as an heap;

     And in storehouses, as it were,

          he layeth up the deep.

8    Let earth, and all that live therein,

          with rev’rence fear the Lord;

     Let all the world’s inhabitants

          dread him with one accord.

9    For he did speak the word, and done

          it was without delay;

     Established it firmly stood,

          whatever he did say.

10   God doth the counsel bring to nought

          which heathen folk do take;

     And what the people do devise

          of none effect doth make.

11   O but the counsel of the Lord

          doth stand for ever sure;

     And of his heart the purposes

          from age to age endure.

12   That nation blessed is, whose God

          Jehovah is, and those

     A blessed people are, whom for

          his heritage he chose.

13   The Lord from heav’n sees and beholds

          all sons of men full well:

14   He views all from his dwelling-place

          that in the earth do dwell.

15   He forms their hearts alike, and all

          their doings he observes.

16   Great hosts save not a king, much strength

          no mighty man preserves.

17   An horse for preservation

          is a deceitful thing;

     And by the greatness of his strength

          can no deliv’rance bring.

18   Behold on those that do him fear

          the Lord doth set his eye;

     Ev’n those who on his mercy do

          with confidence rely.

19   From death to free their soul, in dearth

          life unto them to yield.

20   Our soul doth wait upon the Lord;

          he is our help and shield.

21   Sith in his holy name we trust,

          our heart shall joyful be.

22   Lord, let thy mercy be on us,

          as we do hope in thee.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
