Scripture for Life: The Psalms
40

Praise for Deliverance
Ps. 70.1-5
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1 I waited patiently for the LORD;

and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of a 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. Heb. 10.5-7
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 loving-kindness and thy truth
from the great congregation.
11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD:

let thy loving-kindness 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.
