Psalm 40:1-6 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

For the [music] director. Of David. A psalm.

God’s Faithfulness and Deliverance

1 aI waited patiently for Yahweh, And he inclined to me and heard my cry for help. 2 And [so] he brought me up from [the] roaring pit,b from the miry clay. And he put my feet upon a rock; he made my steps steady. 3 Then he put a new song in my mouth, a praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and will trust Yahweh. 4 Blessed [is] the man who makes Yahweh his trust and does not turn to [the] proud and [to those who] fall away [to] a lie.c 5 Many things, O Yahweh my God, you have done-- your wonderful deeds and your thoughts toward us. There is none to compare with you. If I [tried to] proclaim and tell [of them], they would be too numerous to count. 6 A sacrifice and offering you do not desire. {My ears you have opened}.d Burnt offering and sin offering you have not demanded.
