Psalm 40

King James Version

See Chapter Notes:

 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

 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 the LORD.

 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and 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.

We only have to do these things because we sin.  That is why HE does not desire these things, because HE doesn't want us to sin.

 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

Hebrews 10:7

Translation Difference

'Then said I, observe, I will come: in the volume of the scroll it is written all about Me,' 3585  3586  3587   (The Restoration Scriptures)

3585  Messiah with a prepared body.

3586  Ivrim/Hebrews 10:5-7.

3587  The Masoretic text reads in the Hebrew as follows: be megilath sefer katuv alie. The Hebrew is correct in the Masoretic. The prefix be means “in” the length of the scrolls it is written about Me. The prefix “be” means “in,” not “with.” If the text did say “with” as some claim, the Hebrew prefix, or qualifier eem would be used – but it is not.

 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

Having YHWH's torah within our heart is the will of YHWH.

 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, 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 congregation.

 11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

 12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine 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.

 13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.

 14 Let 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.

 15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

 16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD 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.
