David has proclaimed the good news of deliverance (Ps 40:9-40:10)

“I have told the glad news of deliverance

In the great congregation.

See!

I have not restrained my lips.

As you know!

Yahweh!

I have not hidden

Your saving help within my heart.

I have spoken of your faithfulness.

I have spoken of your salvation.

I have not concealed your steadfast love,

I have not concealed your faithfulness,

From the great congregation.”

David has proclaimed the good news of salvation to the great Jewish congregation where later they would gather in the Temple. He has not kept quiet. He has not hidden his love for Yahweh. He has spoken about his saving help, the faithfulness, and steadfast love of Yahweh. He has not concealed the faithfulness of Yahweh toward him and his faithfulness towards Yahweh. He has done all this publicly in the great assemblies.
