Chapter 40

1

 

 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. 

 

 


2

 

 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings. 

 

 


3

 

 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise unto our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. 

 

 


4

 

 Blessed [is] that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 

 

 


5

 

 Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered. 

 

 


6

 

 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. 

 

 


7

 

 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [it is] written of me, 

 

 


8

 

 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law [is] within my heart. 

 

 


9

 

 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest. 

 

 


10

 

 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation. 

 

 


11

 

 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me. 

 

 


12

 

 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me. 

 

 


13

 

 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me. 

 

 


14

 

 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil. 

 

 


15

 

 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha. 

 

 


16

 

 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. 

 

 


17

 

 But I [am] poor and needy; [yet] the Lord thinketh upon me: thou [art] my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
