Psalms 401 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for Jehovah; 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 he set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. ▼
▼ 1) Heb a pit of tumult (or destruction )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 Jehovah. 4 Blessed is the man that maketh Jehovah his trust, And respecteth not the proud, nor such as ▼ turn aside to lies. ▼
▼ 1) Or fall away treacherously5 Many, O Jehovah my God, are the wonderful works which thou hast done, And thy thoughts which are to us-ward; ▼ They cannot be set in order unto thee; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered. ▼
▼ 1) Or There is none to be compared unto thee6 Sacrifice and ▼ offering thou hast no delight in; ▼
▼ 2Mine ears hast thou opened: Burnt-offering and sin-offering hast thou not required. ▼
▼ 1) Or meal-offering 2) Heb Ears hast thou digged (or pierced ) for me7 Then said I, Lo, I am come; In the roll of the book it is ▼ written of me: ▼
▼ 1) Or prescribed to8 I delight to do thy will, O my God; Yea, thy law is within my heart. 9 I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great assembly; Lo, I will not refrain my lips, O Jehovah, 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 lovingkindness and thy truth from the great assembly. 11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Jehovah; Let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me. 12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about; Mine iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up; They are more than the hairs of my head; And my heart hath ▼ failed me. ▼
▼ 1) Heb forsaken13 Be pleased, O Jehovah, to deliver me: Make haste to help me, O Jehovah. 14 Let them be put to shame and confounded together That seek after my soul to destroy it: Let them be turned backward and brought to dishonor That delight in my hurt. 15 Let them be ▼ desolate ▼
▼ 2by reason of their shame That say unto me, Aha, aha. ▼
▼ 1) Or astonished 2) Or for a reward of16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: Let such as love thy salvation say continually, Jehovah 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.
