Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

33:3 new song. This is the first of nine references in Scripture to a “new song.” Appropriately, this song deals with the great event of creation—the first psalm to do so.

33:4 word of the LORD. What a testimony to God’s Word and God’s work! Whatever He says is true, and whatever He does is right and sure, by definition!

33:6 breath of his mouth. The vast spaces of the cosmos, with all their innumerable stars and galaxies, were called into existence instantaneously by the omnipotent Word of Christ (John 1:3). God did not use processes of stellar evolution for this purpose. If such processes could account for the universe, then God would be redundant. The Genesis account records seventeen occasions of God speaking. Note also Hebrews 11:3, II Peter 3:5, etc.
