God Sustains His Servant.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.1 I a waited ▼
▼ Or intentlypatiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me and c heard my cry.
2He brought me up out of the d pit of destruction, out of the ▼
▼ Lit mud of the miremiry clay,
And f He set my feet upon a rock g making my footsteps firm.
3He put a h new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will i see and fear
And will trust in the Lord.
4How j blessed is the man who has made the Lord his trust,
And k has not ▼
▼ Lit regardturned to the proud, nor to those who m lapse into falsehood.
5Many, O Lord my God, are n the wonders which You have done,
And Your o thoughts toward us;
There is none to compare with You.
If I would declare and speak of them,
They p would be too numerous to count.
▼ I.e. Blood sacrifice, r Sacrifice and meal offering You have not desired;
My ears You have ▼
▼ Lit dug; or possibly piercedopened;
Burnt offering and sin offering You have not required.
7Then I said, “Behold, I come;
In the scroll of the book it is ▼
▼ Or prescribed forwritten of me.
8 u I delight to do Your will, O my God;
v Your Law is within my heart.”
9I have w proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great congregation;
Behold, I will x not restrain my lips,
O Lord y You know.
10I have z not hidden Your righteousness within my heart;
I have aa spoken of Your faithfulness and Your salvation;
I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great congregation.
11You, O Lord, will not withhold Your compassion from me;
▼ Or May...preserveYour ac lovingkindness and Your truth will continually preserve me.
12For evils beyond number have ad surrounded me;
My ae iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see;
They are af more numerous than the hairs of my head,
And my ag heart has ▼
▼ Lit forsakenfailed me.
13 ai Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me;
Make aj haste, O Lord, to help me.
14Let those be ak ashamed and humiliated together
Who al seek my ▼
▼ Or soullife to destroy it;
Let those be turned back and dishonored
Who delight ▼
▼ Or to injure mein my hurt.
15Let those ao be ▼
▼ Or desolatedappalled because of their shame
Who aq say to me, “Aha, aha!”
16 ar Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
Let those who love Your salvation as say continually,
“The Lord be magnified!”
17Since at I am afflicted and needy,
▼ Or The Lord is mindful, av Let the Lord be mindful of me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
Do not delay, O my God.
