Psalm 40

1  I waited patiently for the Lord; 
   he inclined to me and heard my cry.
2  He brought me out of the roaring pit,
      out of the mire and clay; 
   he set my feet upon a rock and made my footing sure.
3  He has put a new song in my mouth,
      a song of praise to our God; 
   many shall see and fear
      and put their trust in the Lord.
4  Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, 
   who does not turn to the proud that follow a lie.
5  Great are the wonders you have done, O Lord my God.
      How great your designs for us! 
   There is none that can be compared with you.
6  If I were to proclaim them and tell of them 
   they would be more than I am able to express.
7  Sacrifice and offering you do not desire 
   but my ears you have opened;
8  Burnt offering and sacrifice for sin you have not required; 
   then said I: ‘Lo, I come.
9  ‘In the scroll of the book it is written of me
      that I should do your will, O my God; 
   I delight to do it: your law is within my heart.’
10  I have declared your righteousness in the great congregation; 
   behold, I did not restrain my lips,
      and that, O Lord, you know.
11  Your righteousness I have not hidden in my heart;
      I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; 
   I have not concealed your loving-kindness and truth
      from the great congregation.
