Psalm 40:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,1 out of the mud2 and mire;3 he set my feet4 on a rock5 and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song6 in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear7 and put their trust8 in the LORD. 4 Blessed is the man9 who makes the LORD his trust,10 who does not look to the proud,11 to those who turn aside to false gods.a12 5 Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders13 you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount14 to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many15 to declare. 6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,16 but my ears you have piercedbc;17 burnt offerings18 and sin offerings you did not require. 7 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come-- it is written about me in the scroll.d19 8 I desire to do your will,20 O my God;21 your law is within my heart."22 9 I proclaim righteousness23 in the great assembly;24 I do not seal my lips, as you know,25 O LORD. 10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness26 and salvation. I do not conceal your love and your truth from the great assembly.27 11 Do not withhold your mercy28 from me, O LORD; may your love29 and your truth30 always protect31 me. 12 For troubles32 without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.33 They are more than the hairs of my head,34 and my heart fails35 within me.
