Chapter 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

6

 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; my 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 loving-kindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

11

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

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.

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 to 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 delay, O my God.
