Psalms Chapter 40

A Messianic Psalm of David The Messiah shall come and preach righteousness He shall declare salvation The righteous shall say: The Lord be magnified.

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1 I WAITED patiently for the LORD;
and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
out of the miry clay,
and set my feet upon a rock,
and established my goings.

3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth,
even praise unto our God:
many shall see it, and fear,
and shall trust in the LORD.

4 Blessed is that man
that maketh the LORD his trust,
and respecteth not the proud,
nor such as turn aside to lies.

5 Many, 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.

6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire;
mine ears hast thou opened:
burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

7 Then said I, Lo, I come:
in the volume of the book it is written of me,

8 I delight to do thy will, O my God:
yea, thy law is within my heart.

9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregationa:
lo, I have not refrained my lips,
O LORD, thou knowest.

aThe Great Congregation

10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart;
I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation:
I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth
from the great congregation.

11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD:
let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

12 For innumerable evils 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 heart faileth me.

13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me:
O LORD, make haste to help me.

14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together
that seek after my soul to destroy it;
let them be driven backward 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 salvation say continually,
The LORD be magnified.

17 But I am poor and needy;
yet the Lord thinketh upon me:
thou art my help and my deliverer;
make no tarrying, O my God.
