Psalm 40 - A Psalm of Praise & Worship
Psalm 40 - A Psalm of David

    1 I waited patiently for the LORD; 
      he turned to me and heard my cry. 

    2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, 
      out of the mud and mire; 
      he set my feet on a rock 
      and gave me a firm place to stand. 

    3 He put a new song in my mouth, 
      a hymn of praise to our God. 
      Many will see and fear 
      and put their trust in the LORD. 

    4 Blessed is the man 
      who makes the LORD his trust, 
      who does not look to the proud, 
      to those who turn aside to false gods. [a] 

    5 Many, O LORD my God, 
      are the wonders you have done. 
      The things you planned for us 
      no one can recount to you; 
      were I to speak and tell of them, 
      they would be too many to declare. 

    6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, 
      but my ears you have pierced [b] , [c] ; 
      burnt offerings and sin offerings 
      you did not require. 

    7 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come. 
      it is written about me in the scroll. [d] 

    8 I desire to do your will, O my God; 
      your law is within my heart." 

    9 I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; 
      I do not seal my lips, 
      as you know, O LORD. 

   10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; 
      I speak of your faithfulness and salvation. 
      I do not conceal your love and your truth 
      from the great assembly. 

   11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, O LORD; 
      may your love and your truth always protect me. 

   12 For troubles without number surround me; 
      my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see. 
      They are more than the hairs of my head, 
      and my heart fails within me. 

   13 Be pleased, O LORD, to save me; 
      O LORD, come quickly to help me. 

   14 May all who seek to take my life 
      be put to shame and confusion; 
      may all who desire my ruin 
      be turned back in disgrace. 

   15 May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!" 
      be appalled at their own shame. 

   16 But may all who seek you 
      rejoice and be glad in you; 
      may those who love your salvation always say, 
      "The LORD be exalted!" 

   17 Yet I am poor and needy; 
      may the Lord think of me. 
      You are my help and my deliverer; 
      O my God, do not delay.
