    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 33:21

    For our heart shall rejoice in him - See the notes at Psalm 13:5.

    Because we have trusted in his holy name - In "him," the "name" often being put for the person himself. See the notes at Psalm 20:1. The idea is:

    (a) that the fact of our having put our trust in God is in itself an occasion of joy or rejoicing;

    (b) that the result will be joy, for we shall never be disappointed.

    It will always, and in all circumstances, be a source of joy to anyone that he HAS put his trust in the name of God.
