Thanksgiving and a Cry for Help

For the choir director. A psalm of David.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:1 -

I waited patiently for the LORD,

and he turned to me and heard my cry for help.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:2 -

He brought me up from a desolate[fn] pit,

out of the muddy clay,

and set my feet on a rock,

making my steps secure.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:3 -

He put a new song in my mouth,

a hymn of praise to our God.

Many will see and fear,

and they will trust in the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:4 -

How happy is anyone

who has put his trust in the LORD

and has not turned to the proud

or to those who run after lies!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:5 -

LORD my God, you have done many things —

your wondrous works and your plans for us;

none can compare with you.

If I were to report and speak of them,

they are more than can be told.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:6 -

You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;

you open my ears to listen.[fn]

You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:7 -

Then I said, “See, I have come;

in the scroll it is written about me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:8 -

“I delight to do your will, my God,

and your instruction is deep within me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:9 -

I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly;

see, I do not keep my mouth closed[fn] —

as you know, LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:10 -

I did not hide your righteousness in my heart;

I spoke about your faithfulness and salvation;

I did not conceal your constant love and truth

from the great assembly.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:11 -

LORD, you do not[fn] withhold your compassion from me.

Your constant love and truth will always guard me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:12 -

For troubles without number have surrounded me;

my iniquities have overtaken me; I am unable to see.

They are more than the hairs of my head,

and my courage leaves me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:13 -

LORD, be pleased to rescue me;

hurry to help me, LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:14 -

Let those who intend to take my life

be disgraced and confounded.

Let those who wish me harm

be turned back and humiliated.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:15 -

Let those who say to me, “Aha, aha! ”

be appalled because of their shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:16 -

Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;

let those who love your salvation continually say,

“The LORD is great! ”

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 40:17 -

I am oppressed and needy;

may the Lord think of me.

You are my helper and my deliverer;

my God, do not delay.
