Psalms 33:10

The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing: he makes the devices of the people of none effect.
Read Chapter 33

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
10. "The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought;" of them that seek not His Kingdom, but kingdoms of their own. "He maketh the devices of the people of none effect:" of them that covet earthly happiness. "And reproveth the counsels of princes" (ver. 10): of them that seek to rule over such peoples.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
And.princes. This seems to be lost in Hebrew, as all the Greeks have recognised it. (Berthier) God prepares the causes and means when he forms his decrees, which are wholly independent. He is not forced to wait for a favourable opportunity. (Calmet) He confounded the tongues at Babel, and his absolute decrees are always executed. (Worthington)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
