39:1 I said, “I will watch my ways, so that I don’t sin with my tongue. I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked is before me.”
39:2 I was mute with silence. I held my peace, even from good. My sorrow was stirred.
39:3 My heart was hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned: I spoke with my tongue:
39:4 “Yahweh, show me my end, what is the measure of my days. Let me know how frail I am.
39:5 Behold, you have made my days handbreadths. My lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely every man stands as a breath.” Selah.
39:6 “Surely every man walks like a shadow. Surely they busy themselves in vain. He heaps up, and doesn’t know who shall gather.
39:7 Now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you.
39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions. Don’t make me the reproach of the foolish.
39:9 I was mute. I didn’t open my mouth, because you did it.
39:10 Remove your scourge away from me. I am overcome by the blow of your hand.
39:11 When you rebuke and correct man for iniquity, You consume his wealth like a moth. Surely every man is but a breath.” Selah.
39:12 “Hear my prayer, Yahweh, and give ear to my cry. Don’t be silent at my tears. For I am a stranger with you, a foreigner, as all my fathers were.
39:13 Oh spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go away, and exist no more.” For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.
40:1 I waited patiently for Yahweh. He turned to me, and heard my cry.
40:2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay. He set my feet on a rock, and gave me a firm place to stand.
40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God. Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in Yahweh.
40:4 Blessed is the man who makes Yahweh his trust, and doesn’t respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
40:5 Many, Yahweh, my God, are the wonderful works which you have done, and your thoughts which are toward us. They can’t be declared back to you. If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
40:6 Sacrifice and offering you didn’t desire. You have opened my ears. You have not required burnt offering and sin offering.
40:7 Then I said, “Behold, I have come. It is written about me in the book in the scroll.
40:8 I delight to do your will, my God. Yes, your law is within my heart.”
40:9 I have proclaimed glad news of righteousness in the great assembly. Behold, I will not seal my lips, Yahweh, you know.
40:10 I have not hidden your righteousness within my heart. I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation. I have not concealed your loving kindness and your truth from the great assembly.
40:11 Don’t withhold your tender mercies from me, Yahweh. Let your loving kindness and your truth continually preserve me.
40:12 For innumerable evils have surrounded me. My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up. They are more than the hairs of my head. My heart has failed me.
40:13 Be pleased, Yahweh, to deliver me. Hurry to help me, Yahweh.
40:14 Let them be disappointed and confounded together who seek after my soul to destroy it. Let them be turned backward and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt.
40:15 Let them be desolate by reason of their shame that tell me, “Aha! Aha!”
40:16 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. Let such as love your salvation say continually, “Let Yahweh be exalted!”
40:17 But I am poor and needy. May the Lord think about me. You are my help and my deliverer. Don’t delay, my God. Psalm 41 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.
