40:1 To the chief Musician [H5329] , A Psalm [H4210] of David [H1732] . I waited [H6960] patiently [H6960] for the LORD [H3068] ; and he inclined [H5186] unto me, and heard [H8085] my cry [H7775] .(I waited: Heb. In waiting I waited)
40:2 He brought me up [H5927] also out of an horrible [H7588] pit [H953] , out of the miry [H3121] clay [H2916] , and set [H6965] my feet [H7272] upon a rock [H5553] , [and] established [H3559] my goings [H838] .(an: Heb. a pit of noise)
40:3 And he hath put [H5414] a new [H2319] song [H7892] in my mouth [H6310] , [even] praise [H8416] unto our God [H430] : many [H7227] shall see [H7200] [it], and fear [H3372] , and shall trust [H982] in the LORD [H3068] .
40:4 Blessed [H835] [is] that man [H1397] that maketh [H7760] the LORD [H3068] his trust [H4009] , and respecteth [H6437] not the proud [H7295] , nor such as turn aside [H7750] to lies [H3577] .
40:5 Many [H7227] , O LORD [H3068] my God [H430] , [are] thy wonderful [H6381] works [which] thou hast done [H6213] , and thy thoughts [H4284] [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order [H6186] unto thee: [if] I would declare [H5046] and speak [H1696] [of them], they are more [H6105] than can be numbered [H5608] .(they cannot: or, none can order them unto thee)
40:6 Sacrifice [H2077] and offering [H4503] thou didst not desire [H2654] ; mine ears [H241] hast thou opened [H3738] : burnt offering [H5930] and sin offering [H2401] hast thou not required [H7592] .(opened: Heb. digged)
40:7 Then said [H559] I, Lo, I come [H935] : in the volume [H4039] of the book [H5612] [it is] written [H3789] of me,
40:8 I delight [H2654] to do [H6213] thy will [H7522] , O my God [H430] : yea, thy law [H8451] [is] within [H8432] my heart [H4578] .(within: Heb. in the midst of my bowels)
40:9 I have preached [H1319] righteousness [H6664] in the great [H7227] congregation [H6951] : lo, I have not refrained [H3607] my lips [H8193] , O LORD [H3068] , thou knowest [H3045] .
40:10 I have not hid [H3680] thy righteousness [H6666] within [H8432] my heart [H3820] ; I have declared [H559] thy faithfulness [H530] and thy salvation [H8668] : I have not concealed [H3582] thy lovingkindness [H2617] and thy truth [H571] from the great [H7227] congregation [H6951] .
40:11 Withhold [H3607] not thou thy tender mercies [H7356] from me, O LORD [H3068] : let thy lovingkindness [H2617] and thy truth [H571] continually [H8548] preserve [H5341] me.
40:12 For innumerable [H4557] evils [H7451] have compassed [H661] me about: mine iniquities [H5771] have taken hold [H5381] upon me, so that I am not able [H3201] to look up [H7200] ; they are more [H6105] than the hairs [H8185] of mine head [H7218] : therefore my heart [H3820] faileth [H5800] me.(falleth: Heb. forsaketh)
40:13 Be pleased [H7521] , O LORD [H3068] , to deliver [H5337] me: O LORD [H3068] , make haste [H2363] to help [H5833] me.
40:14 Let them be ashamed [H954] and confounded [H2659] together [H3162] that seek [H1245] after my soul [H5315] to destroy [H5595] it; let them be driven [H5472] backward [H268] and put to shame [H3637] that wish [H2655] me evil [H7451] .
40:15 Let them be desolate [H8074] for a reward [H6118] of their shame [H1322] that say [H559] unto me, Aha [H1889] , aha [H1889] .
40:16 Let all those that seek [H1245] thee rejoice [H7797] and be glad [H8055] in thee: let such as love [H157] thy salvation [H8668] say [H559] continually [H8548] , The LORD [H3068] be magnified [H1431] .
40:17 But I [am] poor [H6041] and needy [H34] ; [yet] the Lord [H136] thinketh [H2803] upon me: thou [art] my help [H5833] and my deliverer [H6403] ; make no tarrying [H309] , O my God [H430] .
