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.

4Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. Or to lies

5Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.
