I waitedapatiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.2
He brought me up also out of an horriblebpit, out of the miryclay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.3
And he hath put a newsong in my mouth, even praise unto our God:many shall see it, and fear , and shall trust in the LORD.4Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.5Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done , and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered .
6Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire ; mine ears hast thou opened :c burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required .
Then said I, Lo, I come : in the volume of the book it is written of me,
I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is withind my heart.9
I have preachedrighteousness in the greatcongregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest .
I have not hid thy righteousnesswithin my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the greatcongregation.11Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truthcontinuallypreserve me.
For innumerableevils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up ; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heartfaileth me.
Be pleased , O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
Let them be ashamed and confoundedtogether that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be drivenbackward and put to shame that wish me evil.15
Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha,aha.16
Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvationsaycontinually, The LORD be magnified .
But I am poor and needy; yet the Lordthinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer ; make no tarrying , O my God.
