Delight in the will of the Lord
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
Ps. 27:14I waited patiently for the Lord;
And he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of Ps. 69:2,14the miry clay,
And Ps. 27:5set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
Ps. 33:3And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God:
Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.
Ps. 34:8Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust,
And respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
Job 9:10Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done,
Is. 55:8And thy thoughts which are to us-ward:
They cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee:
If I would declare and speak of them,
They are more than can be numbered.
Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire;
Mine ears hast thou opened:
Burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
Then said I, Lo, I come:
In the volume of the book it is written of me,
John 4:34I delight to do thy will, O my God:
Yea, thy law is Ps. 37:31;Jer. 31:33within my heart.
Ps. 22:22I have preached righteousness in the great congregation:
Lo, Ps. 119:13I have not refrained my lips,
O Lord, thou knowest.
Acts 20:20I 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 congregation.
Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord:
Ps. 43:3Let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
For innumerable evils have compassed me about:
Ps. 38:4Mine 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 faileth me.
Ps. 70:1Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me:
O Lord, make haste to help me.
Ps. 35:4Let 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.
Let them be Ps. 73:19desolate for a reward of their shame
That say unto me, Aha, aha!
Ps. 70:4Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:
Let such as love thy salvation Ps. 35:27say continually, The Lord be magnified.
Ps. 70:5But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me:
Thou art my help and my deliverer;
Make no tarrying, O my God.
