Psalms 40

The benefit of confidence in God.

Psalms 40:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid.} I Waited paciently for the Lorde, and he inclined vnto me, and heard my cry. Psalms 40:2 Hee brought mee also out of the horrible pit, out of the myrie clay, and set my feete vpon the rocke, and ordered my goings. Psalms 40:3 And he hath put in my mouth a new song of praise vnto our God: many shal see it and feare, and shall trust in the Lord. Psalms 40:4 Blessed is the man that maketh the Lorde his trust, and regardeth not the proude, nor such as turne aside to lyes. Psalms 40:5 O Lorde my God, thou hast made thy wonderfull workes so many, that none can count in order to thee thy thoughts toward vs: I would declare, and speake of them, but they are moe then I am able to expresse.

Obedience is the best sacrifice.

Psalms 40:6 Sacrifice & offering thou didest not desire: (for mine eares hast thou prepared) burnt offring and sinne offering hast thou not required. Psalms 40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: for in the rolle of the booke it is written of me, Psalms 40:8 I desired to doe thy good will, O my God: yea, thy Lawe is within mine heart. Psalms 40:9 I haue declared thy righteousnesse in the great Congregation: loe, I will not refraine my lippes: O Lord, thou knowest. Psalms 40:10 I haue not hidde thy righteousnesse within mine heart, but I haue declared thy trueth and thy saluation: I haue not conceiled thy mercy and thy trueth from the great Congregation.

The sense of David's evils inflameth his prayer.

Psalms 40:11 Withdrawe not thou thy tender mercie from mee, O Lord: let thy mercie and thy trueth alway preserue me. Psalms 40:12 For innumerable troubles haue compassed mee: my sinnes haue taken such holde vpon me, that I am not able to looke vp: yea, they are moe in nomber then the heares of mine head: therefore mine heart hath failed me. Psalms 40:13 Let it please thee, O Lorde, to deliuer mee: make haste, O Lord, to helpe me. Psalms 40:14 Let them be confounded & put to shame together, that seeke my soule to destroye it: let them be driuen backward and put to rebuke, that desire mine hurt. Psalms 40:15 Let them be destroyed for a rewarde of their shame, which say vnto me, Aha, aha. Psalms 40:16 Let all them, that seeke thee, reioyce and be glad in thee: and let them, that loue thy saluation, say alway, The Lord be praysed. Psalms 40:17 Though I be poore and needie, the Lorde thinketh on mee: thou art mine helper and my deliuerer: my God, make no tarying.
