Psalm 33:16 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
His praiseworthiness (c) as the irresistible Ruler in the history of men. Since in 2 Samuel 15:34; 2 Samuel 17:14, and frequently, הפר עצה is a common phrase, therefore heepiyr as in Psalm 89:34, Ezekiel 17:19, is equivalent to הפר (Ges. ֗67, rem. 9). The perfects are not used in the abstract, but of that which has been experienced most recently, since the "new song" presupposes new matter. With Psalm 33:11 compare Proverbs 19:21. The עצת of God is the unity of the "thoughts of His heart," i.e., of the ideas, which form the inmost part, the ultimate motives of everything that takes place. The whole history of the world is the uninterrupted carrying out of a divine plan of salvation, the primary object of which is His people, but in and with these are included humanity at large.

Oh, grant us help against the foe, for vain is the salvation of man!
"How do you say, 'We are heroes and mighty men of war'?

Flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not retain his strength, nor shall the mighty save his life;
