Psalms 40

The benefit of confidence in God.

Psalms 40:1 {To the chaunter, a Psalme of Dauid.} I Wayted paciently for the Lord, & he enclyned vnto me: and hearde my calling. Psalms 40:2 He brought me also out of the horrible pitte, out of the myer and claye, and sett my fete vpon the rocke, and ordred my goynges. Psalms 40:3 And he hath put a new songe in my mouth, euen a thanckesgeuynge vnto oure God. Many shall se it, and feare, and shall put their trust in the Lorde. Psalms 40:4 Blessed is the man, þt hath sette hys hope in the Lorde, and turned not vnto þe proude, and to soch as go aboute with lyes. Psalms 40:5 O Lord my God, greate are thy wonderous worckes, which thou hast done: like as be also thy thoughtes which are to vs ward: and yet there is no man that ordreth them vnto the.

Obedience is the best sacrifice.

Psalms 40:6 Yf I wolde declare them, and speake of them, they shulde be moo then I am able to expresse. Psalms 40:7 Sacrifice and meat offerynge thou woldest not haue, but myne eares hast thou opened: burntofferynges and sacrifice for synne hast þu not required. Then sayd I: Lo, I come. Psalms 40:8 In þe volume of þe boke it is written of me, þt I shulde fulfyll thy will, O my God: I am content to do it: yee, thy lawe is wythin my hert. Psalms 40:9 I haue declared thy ryghtuousnesse in þe great congregacion: Lo, I will not refrayne my lippes, O Lord, & þt þu knowest. Psalms 40:10 I haue not hyd thy ryghtuousnes within my hert my talkynge hath bene of thy truth and of thy saluacion. I haue not kept backe thy louing mercy, & truth from þe greate congregacion.

The sense of David's evils inflameth his prayer.

Psalms 40:11 Withdrawe not þu thy mercy fro me O Lord, let thy louinge kyndnesse and thy truth alwaye preserue me. Psalms 40:12 For innumerable troubles are come aboute me: my synnes haue taken soche holde vpon me, þt I am not able to loke vp: yee, they are mo in nombre then þe heeres of my head, and my hert hath fayled me. Psalms 40:13 O Lorde, let it be thy pleasure to deliuer me, make haste (O Lorde) to helpe me. Let them be ashamed & confounded together, þt seke after my soule to destroye it: let them be dryuen backward & be put to rebuke, þt wish me euell. Psalms 40:14 Let them be desolate & rewarded wt shame, þt saye vnto me: fye vpon þe, fye vpon þe. Psalms 40:15 Let all those that seke þe, be ioyfull and glad in the: & let soch as loue thy saluacion, saye allwaye the Lorde be praysed. Psalms 40:16 As for me, I am poore & neadye, but þe Lorde careth for me. Psalms 40:17 Thou art my helper and redemer: make no longe taryinge (O my God.)
