Psalm 40

Psa 40:1 To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. Waiting I have waited on Jehovah; and He turned to me and heard my cry.
Psa 40:2 And He drew me up from the pit of tumult, out of the miry clay; He lifted my feet on a rock; He directed my steps.
Psa 40:3 And He put a new song of praise to our God in my mouth; many shall see and shall fear and shall trust in Jehovah.
Psa 40:4 Blessed is the man who sets Jehovah as his trust, and does not turn to the proud, or to those who turn to a lie.
Psa 40:5 Many things have You done, O Jehovah my God; Your works of wonder and Your purposes toward us; there is none to set them in order to You; I will declare and I will speak; they are more than can be counted.
Psa 40:6 Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; You have opened ears to Me. You have not asked burnt offering and sin offering.
Psa 40:7 Then I said, Lo, I come, in the roll of the Book it is written of Me;
Psa 40:8 I delight to do Your will, O My God; and Your Law is within My inmost soul.
Psa 40:9 I have announced righteousness in the great assembly; behold, I will not restrain My lips; O Jehovah You know.
Psa 40:10 I have not concealed Your righteousness in My heart; I speak Your faithfulness and Your salvation. I have not hidden Your loving-kindness and Your truth from the great assembly.
Psa 40:11 Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O Jehovah; let Your lovingkindness and Your truth always watch over me.
Psa 40:12 For evils have surrounded me until there is no number; my iniquities have taken hold on me and I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart fails me.
Psa 40:13 Be pleased to deliver me, O Jehovah; hasten to my help.
Psa 40:14 Let those seeking my soul to destroy it, be ashamed and humbled together; let those delighting in my evil be driven back and disgraced.
Psa 40:15 Let them be desolate until it is the reward for their shame; for they are saying to me, Aha! Aha!
Psa 40:16 Let all who are seeking You be glad in You and always say, May Jehovah be magnified, those loving Your salvation.
Psa 40:17 But I am poor and needy; the Lord will take thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer; O my God, do not delay.

On this day...
