Psalms 40

The benefit of confidence in God.

Psalms 40:1 {For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. Psalms 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay; and he set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. Psalms 40:3 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. Psalms 40:4 Blessed is the man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. Psalms 40:5 Many, O LORD my God, are the wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be set in order unto thee; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

Obedience is the best sacrifice.

Psalms 40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou hast no delight in; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. Psalms 40:7 Then said I, Lo, I am come; in the roll of the book it is written of me: Psalms 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God; yea, thy law is within my heart. Psalms 40:9 I have published righteousness in the great congregation; lo, I will not refrain my lips, O LORD, thou knowest. Psalms 40:10 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.

The sense of David's evils inflameth his prayer.

Psalms 40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me. Psalms 40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about, mine iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head, and my heart hath failed me. Psalms 40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: make haste to help me, O LORD. Psalms 40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it: let them be turned backward and brought to dishonour that delight in my hurt. Psalms 40:15 Let them be desolate by reason of their shame that say unto me, Aha, Aha. Psalms 40:16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. Psalms 40:17 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.
