Context
I Waited Patiently for the Lord

1I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined to me, and heard my cry. 2He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet on a rock, and established my goings. 3And he has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. 4Blessed is that man that makes the LORD his trust, and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. 5Many, O LORD my God, are your wonderful works which you have done, and your thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order to you: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered. 6Sacrifice and offering you did not desire; my ears have you opened: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required. 7Then said I, See, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, 8I delight to do your will, O my God: yes, your law is within my heart. 9I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: see, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, you know. 10I have not hid 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 congregation. 11Withhold not you your tender mercies from me, O LORD: let your loving kindness and your truth continually preserve me. 12For innumerable evils have compassed me about: my iniquities have taken hold on me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head: therefore my heart fails me. 13Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me. 14Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil. 15Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say to me, Aha, aha. 16Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: let such as love your salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified. 17But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinks on me: you are my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
