Psalm 33:12-22 - Being made in the name of God

12 Happy is the nation whose Yahweh elohaw! *

happy the people he has chosen to be his own!

13 Yahweh looks down from heaven, *

and beholds all the people in the world sons of Adam.

14 From where he sits enthroned he turns his gaze *

on all who dwell on the earth.

15 He fashions all the hearts of them *

and understands all their works.

16 There is no king that can be saved by a mighty army; *

a strong man is not delivered by his great strength.

17 The horse is a vain hope for deliverance; *

for all its strength it cannot save.

18 Behold, the eye of Yahweh is upon those who fear him, *

on those who wait upon his love,

19 To pluck their lives from death, *

and to feed them in time of famine.

20 Our soul waits for Yahweh; *

he is our help and our shield.

21 Indeed, our heart rejoices in him, *

for in his holy Name we put our trust.

22 Let your loving-kindness, Yahweh, be upon us, *

as we have put our trust in you.


In verse twelve, twice Hebrew words are written that can either translates as “nation” or “people.” Since the word “nation” is synonymous with a territory, land, or region of the earth, that makes “nation” (void of its “people”) be a lifeless entity. A lifeless entity has no soul and is dead; thus, nations change names and affiliations when new “people” occupy that place. Yahweh, as a non-material entity – THE deity of all gods, souls, spirits and angels – will only be involved with “people,” who have souls. This means “elohaw” is a plural number statement of the “Yahweh elohim” that are those souls who have married Him, being Anointed in Baptism by His Spirit. Thus, the reality of translation, where above it says, “to be his own” (“lə·na·ḥă·lāh lōw”) actually translated to say “to be his possession.” That speaks of a divine “possession” (as His “property, inheritance” – “nachalah”), which means divine marriage of their souls to Him, as Husband and wife-souls. This is what makes “people blessed” or “happy.” They have been divinely “possessed” by Yahweh elohim.

In verse thirteen, it is easy to get lost in the anthropomorphism of David’s writing, so we think of Yahweh as some guy down the road, who has a physical body like ours and eyes that peek out the window to see what is going on over at our place. The spirituality of this verse says: “from souls looks Yahweh”, where Yahweh is the Creator of all souls; so, Yahweh is extended into the material universe in bodies that are His, sent as His eyes in physical form. It is through all humanity that Yahweh “sees.” This is in “all” souls; but those who know that Yahweh is watching through them (as David knew), they are the “sons of Adam.” This places a name on the “Yahweh elohim” that possesses a wife-soul, through whom Yahweh “sees” and reveals the truth to be shown in ministry.

In verse fourteen, David sings, ”from an established place of his dwelling,” where that must be seen as not all life with souls, but only those who have invited Yahweh into their hearts and souls, to live with them forevermore. Yahweh gives life into inanimate matter, which is an extension of Him wherever life on earth exists; but Yahweh “dwells in an established place” where He has married a soul as His wife. It is from within those Saints that Yahweh “looks” for seekers of truth, which should be “all” souls that are “inhabiting” matter of the ‘earth,” which becomes the flesh of a soul’s body. The lost souls should all be seeking to be possessed by Yahweh elohim, so those who have received His Son’s soul are “looking” for those wanting to be saved.

In verse fifteen, David sings, “he forms unitedly their hearts,” which is not only a statement of “formation” through divine union, but more directed to say all “hearts, minds, inner men [souls]” are “united” by being of one Mind. That oneness comes from all being “united” with the soul of Yahweh’s only Son – Adam-Jesus. When a soul marries Yahweh, that soul is where the soul of Adam-Jesus is resurrected; so, two souls are together in one body of flesh. This is the meaning of the name Ephraim, which means “Doubly Fruitful.” The soul of Adam-Jesus then becomes the Lord over the host soul and its flesh, leading it down a path of righteousness, as a minister for others to find. This is then the meaning of David singing, “he discerns” and then “unto all their works” and deeds.

Relative to these ministers of Yahweh, verse sixteen sings, “nothing the king delivered by the multitude of an army ; one strong , not is saved by great strength .” This says that eternal salvation of a soul can only come from the guidance of one possessed by Yahweh elohim. No souls can be “saved by a king’s army.” None can be “saved” by one man’s “strength,” such as David stood as one to face Goliath. It was not the boy David that possessed “might” physical ability, as that was Goliath. David stood as one soul possessed by Yahweh, thus not afraid of Philistine kings or their champion. No one’s soul can be “saved by great strength,” which means oneself has no power to defeat death and gain eternal salvation. Therefore, all have to submit to Yahweh and admit “I am nothing without You.”

In verse seventeen, David sings of the “disappointment horse for salvation ; and by abundance its strength , not will it deliver .” The element of a “horse,” where the root word means “swallow, swift,” has to be seen as a greater advantage for military exercises, such that the cavalry was a “swift” element of attack and chariots were the advanced military machinery in David’s time. Still, the strength shown by a beast of swiftness will not allow one to outrun or fight off death. Judgment will still be awaiting.

In verse eighteen, David wrote, “behold! eye Yahweh into those who fear him.” This does not sing about Yahweh keeping an eye on sinners, because sinner fear everything in the material world (including demon spirits), when they should only fear Yahweh. This means those who fear Yahweh will received the “eye of Yahweh,” in order to see the truth in the world. Thus, David sang to conclude this verse: “into those who wait in his goodness.” Those who “fear Yahweh” and “wait” on His needs will receive the “goodness” or “kindness” that is His Son’s soul resurrected in their souls.

This inner presence is then explained poetically in verse nineteen, where David wrote, “to snatch away their soul from death.” As a soul is an eternal spirit, impossible to die, the only “death” is that of the flesh; but it is the flesh that desires and lusts for the offerings of the material world, enslaving a soul to covet such things. When that flesh dies, if a soul has not received the Son of Yahweh (“Jesus” means “Yah Saves”), then the “death” of the body of flesh brings Judgment that cannot allow an eternal soul to remain in the spiritual realm of Yahweh. This means “death” is the repeated incarceration of a soul in a body of matter that was dead before receiving a soul and will return to “death” eventually. In the “snatching away” or “deliverance from death,” the presence of Yahweh’s Spirit and His Son’s soul “will keep souls alive from famine.” There, “alive” means to remain an eternal spirit that is free from the constraints of the flesh – assured eternal life. The “famine” is an external lack of spiritual food being offered by false priests and unholy rulers. That “famine” is avoided because spiritual nourishment is supplied within, in such abundance that the Saint is seen out into ministry to feed those souls suffering from “famine.”

In verse twenty, David then sings of the wonders of salvation, where “our soul awaits Yahweh”. This says one’s soul has been promised eternal life beyond the death of the flesh. The word “wait” can also be understood as a word of servitude, where the time from receiving the promise of salvation, one’s soul in its body of flesh will “wait” on the needs of Yahweh. Thus, David then sang, “our help and our shield he.” This is the protection of a Saint, where to “help” Yahweh, a soul must have His “help.” This comes as a “shield” against the influences of evil that are prevalent in the world of ministry. This says the guarantee of salvation means the inner soul of Yahweh’s Son will be with our souls, deflecting all evil attempts to steal a soul away from Yahweh.

In verse twenty-one David sang, “for in him will rejoice our heart,” where the Hebrew word translated as “heart” means also “inner man [soul], mind, and will.” In verse fifteen David used the same root in construct, saying “he fashions their hearts,” but now he is saying one’s soul has already been shaped into that of a Saint, so it is the union of a soul with Yahweh and His Son’s soul that makes that be “our heart.” That source of “rejoicing” comes from the soul of Adam-Jesus leading one’s praise of Yahweh. This then led David to sing, “when in name his sacredness we have trusted.” The element of “in name” means marriage to Yahweh, so a host soul in a body of flesh takes on the “name” of His Son, with “Jesus” meaning “Yah Saves.” When one is “in the name” of Yahweh, as His Son reborn, then one is married to Yahweh and His wife-soul. All wives take on the “name” of their husbands; and, the same “name” change occurs in a divinely spiritual manner. The element of “trust” says one’s soul has found true faith, which comes from the personal experience of the Son of God being one with their souls.

In the last verse, David sings, “let be your goodness Yahweh upon us ; your who we wait in you.” This says one has become a Saint, with the “goodness” of His Son’s soul “upon us.” The relative pronoun “your” says one has become the possession of Yahweh, as His dutiful servant. That leads one to “wait in you.” This says a host soul has taken the ‘backseat’ position, while Yahweh’s Son’s soul guides us into ministry, in his name. By being “in you,” David is stating the truth that the Trinity exists in each saved soul, where three have become one, all together “within” Yahweh’s love.
