For the leader. A psalm of David: I waited patiently for ADONAI, till he turned toward me and heard my cry.
He brought me up from the roaring pit, up from the muddy ooze, and set my feet on a rock, making my footing firm.

How blessed the man who trusts in ADONAI and does not look to the arrogant or to those who rely on things that are false.
How much you have done, ADONAI my God! Your wonders and your thoughts toward us -none can compare with you! I would proclaim them, I would speak about them; but there's too much to tell!
Sacrifices and grain offerings you don't want; burnt offerings and sin offerings you don't demand. Instead, you have given me open ears;
