Psalm 40:6-10 New International Version

6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire- but my ears you have opened[1] - burnt offerings and sin offerings[2] you did not require. 7 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come- it is written about me in the scroll.[3] 8 I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart." 9 I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, Lord, as you know. 10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly.
