I waited patiently for the LORD. He turned to me and heard my cry for help.
He pulled me out of a horrible pit, out of the mud and clay. He set my feet on a rock and made my steps secure.
He placed a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see this and worship. They will trust the LORD.
Blessed is the person who places his confidence in the LORD and does not rely on arrogant people or those who follow lies.
You have done many miraculous things, O LORD my God. You have made many wonderful plans for us. No one compares to you! I will tell others about your miracles, which are more than I can count.
You were not pleased with sacrifices and offerings. You have dug out two ears for me. You did not ask for burnt offerings or sacrifices for sin.
