Psalm 40 (KJV)

1  I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

2  He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

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.

4  Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

5  Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

6  Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

8  I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

9  I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest.

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.

11  Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

12  For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

13  Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me: O Lord, make haste to help me.

14  Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.

15  Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

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.

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.
