Psalms 40

The benefit of confidence in God.

Psalms 40:1 {To the chiefe Musician, A [Psalme] of Dauid.} I waited patiently for the LORD, and he inclined vnto me, and heard my crie. Psalms 40:2 He brought me vp also out of an horrible pit, out of the mirie clay, and set my feete vpon a rock, [and] established my goings. Psalms 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [euen] praise vnto our God: many shall see it, and feare, and shall trust in the LORD. Psalms 40:4 Blessed [is] that man that maketh the LORD his truste: and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turne aside to lies. Psalms 40:5 Many, O LORD my God; [are] thy wonderfull workes [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts, [which are] to vs ward: they cannot be reckoned vp in order vnto thee: [if] I would declare and speake [of them], they are moe then can be numbred.

Obedience is the best sacrifice.

Psalms 40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire, mine eares hast thou opened: burnt offering and sinne-offering hast thou not required. Psalms 40:7 Then sayd I, Loe, I come: in the volume of the booke it [is] written of me: Psalms 40:8 I delight to doe thy will, O my God: yea thy lawe [is] within my heart. Psalms 40:9 I haue preached righteousnesse in the great congregation: loe, I haue not refrained my lippes, O LORD, thou knowest. Psalms 40:10 I haue not hid thy righteousnesse within my heart, I haue declared thy faithfulnesse and thy saluation: I haue not concealed thy louing kindnesse, and thy truth, from the great congregation.

The sense of David's evils inflameth his prayer.

Psalms 40:11 With-hold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy louing kindnesse, and thy trueth continually preserue me. Psalms 40:12 For innumerable euils haue compassed me about, mine iniquities haue taken hold vpon me, so that I am not able to looke vp: they are moe then the haires of mine head, therefore my heart faileth me. Psalms 40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliuer me: O LORD, make haste to helpe me. Psalms 40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together, that seeke after my soule to destroy it: let them be driuen backward, and put to shame, that wish me euill. Psalms 40:15 Let them be desolate, for a reward on their shame, that say vnto me, Aha, aha! Psalms 40:16 Let all those that seeke thee, reioyce and bee glad in thee: let such as loue thy saluation, say continually, The LORD be magnified. Psalms 40:17 But I [am] poore and needy, [yet] the Lord thinketh vpon me: thou [art] my helpe and my deliuerer, make no tarrying, O my God.
