Psalm 40 :: March 6-14

Psalm 40:1

1 I waited patiently for the Lord;

he inclined to me and heard my cry.


Tuesday, March 7

psalm 40:2-3

2 He drew me up from the pit of destruction,

out of the miry bog,

and set my feet upon a rock,

making my steps secure.

3 He put a new song in my mouth,

a song of praise to our God.

Many will see and fear,

and put their trust in the Lord.


Wednesday, March 8

psalm 40:4-5

4 Blessed is the man who makes

the Lord his trust,

who does not turn to the proud,

to those who go astray after a lie!

5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God,

your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us;

none can compare with you!

I will proclaim and tell of them,

yet they are more than can be told.

in the scroll of the book it is written of me:

as you know, O Lord.


Saturday, March 11

I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation;

your mercy from me;

your steadfast love and your faithfulness will

ever preserve me!


Sunday, March 12

psalm 40:12-13

12 For evils have encompassed me

beyond number;

my iniquities have overtaken me,

my heart fails me.

13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me!

O Lord, make haste to help me!


Monday, March 13

psalm 40:14-15

4 Let those be put to shame and disappointed altogether

who seek to snatch away my life;

who delight in my hurt!

15 Let those be appalled because of their shame

who say to me, "Aha, Aha!"


Tuesday, March 14

rejoice and be glad in you;

may those who love your salvation

say continually, "Great is the Lord!"

17 As for me, I am poor and needy,

but the Lord takes thought for me.

You are my help and my deliverer;

do not delay, O my God!
