Psalm 40

YLT 1 To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. I have diligently expected Jehovah, And He inclineth to me, and heareth my cry, NIV 1 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. YLT 2 And He doth cause me to come up From a pit of desolation -- from mire of mud, And He raiseth up on a rock my feet, He is establishing my steps. NIV 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. YLT 3 And He putteth in my mouth a new song, `Praise to our God.' Many do see and fear, and trust in Jehovah. NIV 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD. YLT 4 O the happiness of the man Who hath made Jehovah his trust, And hath not turned unto the proud, And those turning aside to lies. NIV 4 Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. YLT 5 Much hast Thou done, Jehovah my God; Thy wonders and Thy thoughts toward us, There is none to arrange unto Thee, I declare and speak: They have been more than to be numbered. NIV 5 Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. YLT 6 Sacrifice and present Thou hast not desired, Ears Thou hast prepared for me, Burnt and sin-offering Thou hast not asked. NIV 6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced; burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require. YLT 7 Then said I, `Lo, I have come,' In the roll of the book it is written of me, NIV 7 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come-- it is written about me in the scroll. YLT 8 To do Thy pleasure, my God, I have delighted, And Thy law [is] within my heart. NIV 8 I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart." YLT 9 I have proclaimed tidings of righteousness In the great assembly, lo, my lips I restrain not, O Jehovah, Thou hast known. NIV 9 I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, as you know, O LORD. YLT 10 Thy righteousness I have not concealed In the midst of my heart, Thy faithfulness and Thy salvation I have told, I have not hidden Thy kindness and Thy truth, To the great assembly. NIV 10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and salvation. I do not conceal your love and your truth from the great assembly. YLT 11 Thou, O Jehovah, restrainest not Thy mercies from me, Thy kindness and Thy truth do continually keep me. NIV 11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, O LORD; may your love and your truth always protect me. YLT 12 For compassed me have evils innumerable, Overtaken me have mine iniquities, And I have not been able to see; They have been more than the hairs of my head, And my heart hath forsaken me. NIV 12 For troubles without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart fails within me. YLT 13 Be pleased, O Jehovah, to deliver me, O Jehovah, for my help make haste. NIV 13 Be pleased, O LORD, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me. YLT 14 They are ashamed and confounded together, Who are seeking my soul to destroy it, They are turned backward, And are ashamed, who are desiring my evil. NIV 14 May all who seek to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. YLT 15 They are desolate because of their shame, Who are saying to me, `Aha, aha.' NIV 15 May those who say to me, "Aha! Aha!" be appalled at their own shame. YLT 16 All seeking Thee rejoice and are glad in Thee, Those loving Thy salvation say continually, `Jehovah is magnified.' NIV 16 But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation always say, "The LORD be exalted!" YLT 17 And I [am] poor and needy, The Lord doth devise for me. My help and my deliverer [art] Thou, O my God, tarry Thou not. NIV 17 Yet I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; O my God, do not delay.
