Salmos 40

Al director musical. Salmo de David.

1Puse en el Señor toda mi esperanza;
    él se inclinó hacia mí y escuchó mi clamor.
Me sacó de la fosa de la muerte,
    del lodo y del pantano;
puso mis pies sobre una roca,
    y me plantó en terreno firme.
Puso en mis labios un cántico nuevo,
    un himno de alabanza a nuestro Dios.
Al ver esto, muchos tuvieron miedo
    y pusieron su confianza en el Señor.

Dichoso el que pone su confianza en el Señor
    y no recurre a los idólatras
    ni a los que adoran dioses falsos.
Muchas son, Señor mi Dios,
    las maravillas que tú has hecho.
No es posible enumerar
    tus bondades en favor nuestro.
Si quisiera anunciarlas y proclamarlas,
    serían más de lo que puedo contar.

A ti no te complacen sacrificios ni ofrendas,
    pero has abierto mis oídos para oírte;
tú no has pedido holocaustos
    ni sacrificios por el pecado.
Por eso dije: «Aquí me tienes
    —como el libro dice de mí—.
Me agrada, Dios mío, hacer tu voluntad;
    tu ley la llevo dentro de mí».

En medio de la gran asamblea
    he dado a conocer tu justicia.
Tú bien sabes, Señor,
    que no he sellado mis labios.
10 No escondo tu justicia en mi corazón,
    sino que proclamo tu fidelidad y tu salvación.
No oculto en la gran asamblea
    tu gran amor y tu verdad.
11 No me niegues, Señor, tu misericordia;
    que siempre me protejan tu amor y tu verdad.
12 Muchos males me han rodeado;
    tantos son que no puedo contarlos.
Me han alcanzado mis iniquidades,
    y ya ni puedo ver.
Son más que los cabellos de mi cabeza,
    y mi corazón desfallece.

13 Por favor, Señor, ¡ven a librarme!
    ¡Ven pronto, Señor, en mi auxilio!
14 Sean confundidos y avergonzados
    todos los que tratan de matarme;
huyan derrotados
    todos los que procuran mi mal;
15 que la vergüenza de su derrota
    humille a los que se burlan de mí.
16 Pero que todos los que te buscan
    se alegren en ti y se regocijen;
que los que aman tu salvación digan siempre:
    «¡Cuán grande es el Señor

17 Y a mí, pobre y necesitado,
    quiera el Señor tomarme en cuenta.

Tú eres mi socorro y mi libertador;
    ¡Dios mío, no tardes!

Psalm 40

Psalm 40

For the choir director: A psalm of David.

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
    and he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
    out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
    and steadied me as I walked along.
He has given me a new song to sing,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
    They will put their trust in the Lord.

Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord,
    who have no confidence in the proud
    or in those who worship idols.
O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.
    Your plans for us are too numerous to list.
    You have no equal.
If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds,
    I would never come to the end of them.

You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings.
    Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand[a]
    you don’t require burnt offerings or sin offerings.
Then I said, “Look, I have come.
    As is written about me in the Scriptures:
I take joy in doing your will, my God,
    for your instructions are written on my heart.”

I have told all your people about your justice.
    I have not been afraid to speak out,
    as you, O Lord, well know.
10 I have not kept the good news of your justice hidden in my heart;
    I have talked about your faithfulness and saving power.
I have told everyone in the great assembly
    of your unfailing love and faithfulness.

11 Lord, don’t hold back your tender mercies from me.
    Let your unfailing love and faithfulness always protect me.
12 For troubles surround me—
    too many to count!
My sins pile up so high
    I can’t see my way out.
They outnumber the hairs on my head.
    I have lost all courage.

13 Please, Lord, rescue me!
    Come quickly, Lord, and help me.
14 May those who try to destroy me
    be humiliated and put to shame.
May those who take delight in my trouble
    be turned back in disgrace.
15 Let them be horrified by their shame,
    for they said, “Aha! We’ve got him now!”

16 But may all who search for you
    be filled with joy and gladness in you.
May those who love your salvation
    repeatedly shout, “The Lord is great!”
17 As for me, since I am poor and needy,
    let the Lord keep me in his thoughts.
You are my helper and my savior.
    O my God, do not delay.
