Many will see and fear,     and put their trust in the Lord. 4 Blessed is the man who makes     the Lord his trust, who does not turn to the proud,     to those who go astray after a lie! 5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God,     your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;     none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them,     yet they are more than can be told. 6 In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted,     but you have given me an open ear.[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+40&version=ESV#fen-ESV-14532a (a)] Burnt offering and sin offering     you have not required. 7 Then I said, “Behold, I have come;     in the scroll of the book it is written of me: 8 I delight to do your will, O my God;     your law is within my heart.” 9 I have told the glad news of deliverance[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+40&version=ESV#fen-ESV-14535b (b)]     in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips,     as you know, O Lord. 10 I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart;     I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness     from the great congregation. 11 As for you, O Lord, you will not restrain     your mercy from me; your steadfast love and your faithfulness will     ever preserve me! 12 For evils have encompassed me     beyond number; my iniquities have overtaken me,     and I cannot see; they are more than the hairs of my head;     my heart fails me. 13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me!     O Lord, make haste to help me! 14 Let those be put to shame and disappointed altogether     who seek to snatch away my life; let those be turned back and brought to dishonor     who delight in my hurt! 15 Let those be appalled because of their shame     who say to me, “Aha, Aha!” 16 But may all who seek you     rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation     say continually, “Great is the Lord!” 17 As for me, I am poor and needy,     but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer;     do not delay, O my God!   Interested in more content like this?
