Psalm 40:1-5 New International Version

Praise for Deliverance

40 1  [1]I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2  He 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. 3  He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lordand put their trust in him. 4  Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.[2] 5  Many, 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.
