View In My Bible
1 For victory, the psalm of David. I abiding abode the Lord; and he gave attention to me. And he heard my prayers; (To victory, the song of David. Patiently waiting, I waited for the Lord; and he gave attention to me. And he heard my prayers;) 2 and he led out me from the pit of wretchedness, and from the filth of dregs. And he ordained my feet on a stone; and he (ad)dressed my goings. (and he led me out of the pit of wretchedness, and out of the filth of dregs. And he ordained my feet upon a stone; and he directed my goings.) 3 And he sent into my mouth a new song; a song to our God. Many men shall see, and dread; and shall hope in the Lord.

And many shall see this, and shall have fear/and shall be in awe; and then they shall put their trust in the Lord.) 4 Blessed is the man, of whom the name of the Lord is his hope; and he beheld not into vanities, and into false vengeances. (Happy is the person, for whom the Lord's name is his hope; and he looketh not to idols, or to false gods.) 5 My Lord God, thou hast made thy marvels many; and in thy thoughts none is, that is like thee (toward us).

I have told about them; yea, I have spoken about them, and they be multiplied far above number.) 6 Thou wouldest not sacrifice and offering; but thou madest perfectly ears to me. Thou askedest not burnt sacrifice, and other sacrifice for sin; (Thou desiredest not sacrifices and offerings; but thou hast given me ears to hear thee. Thou askedest not for burnt sacrifices, and other sacrifices for sin;)
