THE HOLY BIBLE Darby

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

40:1I waited patiently for Jehovah; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

40:2And he brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock; he hath established my goings:

40:3And he hath put a new song in my mouth, praise unto our God. Many shall see it, and fear, and shall confide in Jehovah.

40:4Blessed is the man that hath made Jehovah his confidence, and turneth not to the proud, and to such as turn aside to lies.

40:5Thou, O Jehovah my God, hast multiplied thy marvellous works, and thy thoughts toward us: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee; would I declare and speak them, they are more than can be numbered.

40:6Sacrifice and oblation thou didst not desire: ears hast thou prepared me. Burnt-offering and sin-offering hast thou not demanded;

40:7Then said I, Behold, I come, in the volume of the book it is written of me --

40:8To do thy good pleasure, my God, is my delight, and thy law is within my heart.

40:9I have published righteousness in the great congregation: behold, I have not withheld my lips, Jehovah, *thou* knowest.

40:10I have not hidden thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy loving-kindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

40:11Withhold not thou, Jehovah, thy tender mercies from me; let thy loving-kindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

40:12For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I cannot see; they are more than the hairs of my head: and my heart hath failed me.

40:13* Be pleased, O Jehovah, to deliver me; Jehovah, make haste to my help.

40:14Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be turned backward and confounded that take pleasure in mine adversity;

40:15Let them be desolate, because of their shame, that say unto me, Aha! Aha!

40:16Let all those that seek thee be glad and rejoice in thee; let such as love thy salvation say continually, Jehovah be magnified!

40:17But I am afflicted and needy: the Lord thinketh upon me. Thou art my help and my deliverer: my God, make no delay.

41:1Blessed is he that understandeth the poor: Jehovah will deliver him in the day of evil.

41:2Jehovah will preserve him, and keep him alive; he shall be made happy in the land; and thou wilt not deliver him to the will of his enemies.

41:3Jehovah will sustain him upon the bed of languishing: thou turnest all his bed in his sickness.

41:4As for me, I said, Jehovah, be gracious unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

41:5Mine enemies wish me evil: When will he die, and his name perish?

41:6And if one come to see me, he speaketh falsehood; his heart gathereth wickedness to itself: he goeth abroad, he telleth it.

41:7All that hate me whisper together against me; against me do they devise my hurt.

41:8A thing of Belial cleaveth fast unto him; and now that he is laid down, he will rise up no more.

41:9Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I confided, who did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

41:10But thou, Jehovah, be gracious unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.

41:11By this I know that thou delightest in me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.

41:12But as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.

41:13Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, from eternity to eternity! Amen, and Amen.

42:1As the hart panteth after the water-brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

42:2My soul thirsteth for God, for the living łGod: when shall I come and appear before God?

42:3My tears have been my bread day and night, while they say unto me all the day, Where is thy God?

42:4These things I remember and have poured out my soul within me: how I passed along with the multitude, how I went on with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, a festive multitude.

42:5Why art thou cast down, my soul, and art disquieted in me? hope in God; for I shall yet praise him, for the health of his countenance.

42:6My God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore do I remember thee from the land of the Jordan, and the Hermons, from mount Mizar.

42:7Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy cataracts; all thy breakers and thy billows are gone over me.

42:8In the day-time will Jehovah command his loving-kindness, and in the night his song shall be with me, a prayer unto the łGod of my life.

42:9I will say unto łGod my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

42:10As with a crushing in my bones mine adversaries reproach me, while they say unto me all the day, Where is thy God?

42:11Why art thou cast down, my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God; for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
