Psalms 40


40:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently
 for the LORD; and he inclined to me, and heard my cry.
40:2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the
 miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my
 goings.
40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise to
 our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the
 LORD.
40:4 Blessed [is] that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and
 respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
40:5 Many, O LORD, my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which]
 thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] toward us, they
 cannot be reckoned up in order to thee: [if] I would declare
 and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.
40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; my ears hast
 thou opened: burnt-offering and sin-offering hast thou not
 required.
40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [it is]
 written of me,
40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law [is]
 within my heart.
40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation:
 lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have
 declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not
 concealed thy loving-kindness and thy truth from the great
 congregation.
40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let
 thy loving-kindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
40:12 For innumerable evils have encompassed me: my iniquities
 have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they
 are more than the hairs of my head: therefore my heart faileth
 me.
40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to
 help me.
40:14 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.
40:15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say
 to me, Aha, aha.
40:16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:
 let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be
 magnified.
40:17 But I [am] poor and needy; [yet] the LORD thinketh upon
 me: thou [art] my help and my deliverer; make no delay, O my
 God.
