Psalms 33:16-18

Context

33:16 No king is delivered by his vast army;

a warrior is not saved by his great might.

33:17 A horse disappoints those who trust in it for victory; 1 

despite its great strength, it cannot deliver.

33:18 Look, the Lord takes notice of his loyal followers, 2 

those who wait for him to demonstrate his faithfulness 3 

1 tn Heb “a lie [is] the horse for victory.”

2 tn Heb “look, the eye of the Lord [is] toward the ones who fear him.” The expression “the eye…[is] toward” here indicates recognition and the bestowing of favor. See Ps 34:15. The one who fears the Lord respects his sovereignty and obeys his commandments. See Ps 128:1; Prov 14:2.

3 tn Heb “for the ones who wait for his faithfulness.”
