Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 (39-1) ^^ To the chief of the choir. Psalm of David. ^^ (39-2) I firmly trusted in the Lord, and He bowed to me and heard my cry;
2 (39-3) He took me out of a terrible moat, from a muddy swamp, and set my feet on a stone and strengthened my feet;
3 (39-4) and put a new song in my mouth - praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and will trust in the Lord.
4 (39-5) Blessed is the man who puts his hope on the Lord and does not turn to the proud and to those who shy away from lies.
5 (39-6) You, my God, have done a lot: about your miracles and thoughts about us - who will become like you! - I would like to preach and speak, but they exceed the number.

6 (39-7) Sacrifices and offerings You did not want; You opened my ears; You did not demand burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin.
7 (39-8) Then I said: here I go; in a book scroll says about me:
eight (39-9) I desire to do Your will, My God, and Your law is in my heart.
nine (39-10) I proclaimed Thy righteousness in the great congregation; I did not forbid my mouth: Lord, you know.
ten (39-11) I did not hide Your righteousness in my heart, proclaimed Your faithfulness and Your salvation, did not conceal Your mercy and Your truth before the great assembly.

eleven (39-12) Lord, do not hold Your bounty from me; Thy mercy and thy truth guard me unceasingly
12 (39-13) for innumerable troubles surrounded me; my iniquities have befallen me, so I can’t see: there are more of them than the hairs on my head; my heart has left me.
13 (39-14) Good Lord, deliver me; Lord hurry to help me.
fourteen (39-15) May all who seek perdition die to my soul! May those who wish me evil be turned back and betrayed to mockery!
fifteen (39-16) May those who say to me, “Be alright! well!'
16 (39-17) May all who seek You rejoice and rejoice with Thee, and those who love Your salvation let them say unceasingly: `` The Lord is great! ''
17 (39-18) But I am poor and destitute, but the Lord cares for me. You are my help and my deliverer, my God! not slow down.
