Discover Psalm 40 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
I waited patiently for Jehovah,
and he bowed down to me and heard my cry.
And he brought me out of the troubled well, out of the muddy mud;
and put my feet on a rock and straightened my steps.
And he put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.
Many will see this and fear
and trust in Jehovah.
Blessed is the man who puts his trust in the Lord,
and does not turn to the proud or to those who turn aside after lying.
Many are the wonders that you have done , O Lord my God,
and many are your thoughts for us.
There is no one to compare with you.
If I were to announce them and talk about them,
they could not be listed.
Sacrifice and offering do not please you;
you have opened my ears;
burnt offering and sin offering you have not asked.
Then I said, Behold, I am coming;
in the scroll of the book it is written about me;
In doing your will, my God, I delight,
and your law is within me.
I have announced justice in the great congregation;
behold, I have not restrained my lips, O Lord; you know it.
I have not hidden your righteousness within my heart;
your truth and your salvation I have proclaimed;
I have not hidden your loving kindness or your truth in the great congregation.
You, O Lord, do not withhold your tender mercies from me;
your loving kindness and your truth keep me always.
My iniquities have overtaken me and I cannot look up.
They have grown larger than the hairs on my head, and my heart fails me.
Be good, O Lord, to deliver me;
Jehovah, make haste to help me.
Let them be ashamed and confused
who seek my life to destroy it.
Let them turn back and be put to shame
those who desire my evil.
May Those who mock me say to me, Aha, aha, be
desolate in return for their shame!
Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you,
and let those who love your salvation say always:
The Lord be exalted!
Even though I am poor and needy,
the Lord will think of me.
You are my help and my liberator;
My God, do not delay!
