Psalm 40 ©
David from his own experience sheweth the benefit of trust in God. Obedience the most acceptable sacrifice. David's grateful return of praise: he prayeth for salvation to himself, and confusion to his enemies.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
I have not hid othy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy pfaithfulness and thy qsalvation: I have not concealed thy rlovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
For uinnumerable evils vhave *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 6faileth me.
