Psalms 40
New Living Translation
40[For the choir director: A psalm of David.] I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry.H5329H4210H1732H6960H6960H3068H5186H8085H7775 2He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.H5927H7588H953H3121H2916H6965H7272H5553H3559H838 3He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.H5414H2319H7892H6310H8416H430H7227H7200H3372H982H3068 4Oh, the joys of those who trust the LORD, who have no confidence in the proud or in those who worship idols.H835H1397H7760H3068H4009H6437H7295H7750H3577 5O LORD my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.H7227H3068H430H6381H6213H4284H6186H5046H1696H6105H5608 6You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings. Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand—you don't require burnt offerings or sin offerings.H2077H4503H2654H241H3738H5930H2401H7592 7Then I said, "Look, I have come. As is written about me in the Scriptures.H559H935H4039H5612H3789 8I take joy in doing your will, my God, for your instructions are written on my heart."H2654H6213H7522H430H8451H8432H4578 9I have told all your people about your justice. I have not been afraid to speak out, as you, O LORD, well know.H1319H6664H7227H6951H3607H8193H3068H3045 10I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart; I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power. I have told everyone in the great assembly of your unfailing love and faithfulness.H3680H6666H8432H3820H559H530H8668H3582H2617H571H7227H6951 11LORD, don't hold back your tender mercies from me. Let your unfailing love and faithfulness always protect me.H3607H7356H3068H2617H571H8548H5341 12For troubles surround me—too many to count! My sins pile up so high I can't see my way out. They outnumber the hairs on my head. I have lost all courage.H4557H7451H661H5771H5381H3201H7200H6105H8185H7218H3820H5800 13Please, LORD, rescue me! Come quickly, LORD, and help me.H7521H3068H5337H3068H2363H5833 14May those who try to destroy me be humiliated and put to shame. May those who take delight in my trouble be turned back in disgrace.H954H2659H3162H1245H5315H5595H5472H268H3637H2655H7451 15Let them be horrified by their shame, for they said, "Aha! We've got him now!"H8074H6118H1322H559H1889H1889 16But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness in you. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout, "The LORD is great!"H1245H7797H8055H157H8668H559H8548H3068H1431 17As for me, since I am poor and needy, let the Lord keep me in his thoughts. You are my helper and my savior. O my God, do not delay.H6041H34H136H2803H5833H6403H309H430
