Psalms 40

The benefit of confidence in God.

Psalms 40:1 {To the chiefe musition, a psalme of Dauid.} I wayted patiently vpon God, and he enclined vnto me [his eare]: and heard my crying. Psalms 40:2 He brought me also out of an horrible pyt, out of the dirtie mire: and set my feete vpon a rocke, and directed my goynges. Psalms 40:3 And he hath put a newe song in my mouth: euen a thankesgeuyng vnto our Lorde. Psalms 40:4 Many shall see it, and feare: and shall put their trust in God. Psalms 40:5 Blessed is the man that hath set his hope in God: and turned not vnto the proude, and to such as decline to lyes.

Obedience is the best sacrifice.

Psalms 40:6 O God my Lord, great are thy wonderous workes which thou hast done: & none can count in order thy benefites towarde vs, yf I woulde declare them and speake of them, they shoulde be mo then I am able to expresse. Psalms 40:7 Thou wouldest haue no sacrifice or offeryng, but thou hast opened myne eares: thou hast not required burnt offerynges and sacrifice for sinne. Psalms 40:8 Then sayde I, lo I am come: in the booke of thy lawe it is written of me that I shoulde fulfyll thy wyll O my God, I am content to do it, yea thy lawe is within the middest of my brest. Psalms 40:9 I haue declared thy righteousnes in a great congregatio: lo I wil not refraine my lippes O God thou knowest [it.] Psalms 40:10 I haue not hyd thy ryghteousnesse within my heart: my talkyng hath ben of thy trueth and of thy saluation. I haue not concealed thy louyng mercie and trueth: from the great congregation.

The sense of David's evils inflameth his prayer.

Psalms 40:11 Withdrawe not thou thy mercie from me O God: let thy louyng kyndnesse and thy trueth alway preserue me. Psalms 40:12 For innumerable troubles are come about me, my sinnes haue taken such holde vpon me that I am not able to loke vp: yea they are mo in number then the heeres of my head, & my heart hath fayled me. Psalms 40:13 O God let it be thy pleasure to deliuer me: make haste O God to helpe me. Psalms 40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seke after my soule to destroy it: let them be dryuen backwarde & be put to rebuke that wyshe me euyll. Psalms 40:15 Let them be desolate in recompence of their shame: that say vnto me, fye vpon thee, fye vpon thee. Psalms 40:16 Let all those that seeke thee be glad and ioyfull in thee: and let such as loue thy saluation, say alway God be magnified. Psalms 40:17 As for me I am afflicted and needye, but God careth for me: thou art my ayde and delyuerer, O my God make no long tarying.
