Psalms 40

The benefit of confidence in God.

Psalms 40:1 {To the chaunter, a Psalme of Dauid.} I waited pacyently for þe Lord, which enclined hym selfe vnto me: and herd my callynge. Psalms 40:2 He brought me out of the horryble pitte, out of the myre and claye: he set my fete vpon the rocke, & ordred my goinges. Psalms 40:3 He hath put a newe songe in my mouthe, euen a thanckes geuynge vnto oure God. Many men seing this shal feare the Lord, and put their trust in hym. Psalms 40:4 Blessed is the man that setteth his hope in the Lorde, and turneth not vnto the proud, & to such as go aboute with lyes. Psalms 40:5 O Lorde my God, greate are thy wonderous worckes whiche thou haste done: and in thy thoughtes toward vs there maye none be likened vnto the. I wold declare them, and speake of them: but they are so manye, that they can not be tolde.

Obedience is the best sacrifice.

Psalms 40:6 Sacryfyce and offerynge thou wouldeste not haue but a bodye haste thou ordeyned me: burnt offerynges and sacrifyce for synne thou hast not alowed. Psalms 40:7 Then sayde I: Lo, I come. In the begynnynge of the boke is it written of me, Psalms 40:8 that I shoulde fulfyl thy wyl O my God, and that am I content to do: yea thy lawe is wythin my hert. Psalms 40:9 I will preach of thy ryghtuousnesse in the great congregacyon: Lo. I wyl not refraine my lippes, O Lorde, and that thou knowest. Psalms 40:10 I do not hyde thy ryghtuousnes in my hert, my talkinge is of thy trueth and sauing health: I kepe not thy louyng mercy & faythfulnesse backe from the greate congregacyon.

The sense of David's evils inflameth his prayer.

Psalms 40:11 Turne not thou thy mercy fro me O Lord but let thy louynge kyndnesse and trueth alwaye preseue me. Psalms 40:12 For innumerable troubles are come about me: my synnes haue taken suche holde vpon me that I am not able to loke vp: yea they are mo in number then the heares of my head and my hert hath fayled me. Psalms 40:13 O Lorde, let it be thy pleasure to delyuer me make hast (Lord) to help me. Psalms 40:14 Let them be ashamed and confunded, that seke after my soule, to destroye it: let them fall backwarde and be put to confusion, that wish me euell. Psalms 40:15 Let them soone be broughte to shame, that crye ouer me, there there. Psalms 40:16 But let all those that seke the, be ioyfull and glad in the: & let al such as delyte in thye sauyng health, say alway: þe Lord be praised. Psalms 40:17 As for me, I am poore and in miserye, but the Lord careth for me. Thou art my helper and redemer, make no long tariyng, O my God.
