Psalm 40In Hebrew texts 40:1-17 is numbered 40:2-18.
1For the director of music. Of David. A psalm. I waited patiently for the LORD ; he turned to me and heard my cry.
2He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
3He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him.
