Psalms 40
To the Heavenly Worship Leader, A Psalm (sacred song about or to God) of David [Beloved].
1I waited patiently for the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings.
3And he has put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise unto our God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate].
4Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [is] that man that makes the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] his trust, and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5Many, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] my God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], [are] youri wonderful works [which] youi have done, and youri thoughts [which are] toward us: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto youi: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.
6Sacrifice and offering youi did not desire; mine ears have youi opened: burnt offering and sin offering have youi not required.
7Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [it is] written of me,
8I delight to do youi will, O my God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: yea, youri law [is] within my heart.
9I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], youi know.
10I have not hid youri righteousness within my heart; I have declared youi faithfulness and youi salvation: I have not concealed youri lovingkindness and youri tfrom the great congregation.
11Withhold not youi youri tender mercies from me, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]: let youri lovingkindness and youri tcontinually preserve me.
12For 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 fails me.
13Be pleased, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], to deliver me: O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], make haste to help me.
14Let 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.
15Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
16Let all those that seek youi rejoice and be glad in youi: let such as love youi salvation say continually, The Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] be magnified.
17But I [am] poor and needy; [yet] the Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things] thinks upon me: youi [are] my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
