To the choirmaster leader, a psalm of David
“I waited patiently for Yahweh.
He inclined to me.
He heard my cry.
He drew me up from the desolate pit.
He drew me out of the miry bog.
He set my feet upon a rock.
He makes my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
A song of praise to our God.
Many will see Yahweh.
Many will fear Yahweh.
Many will put their trust in Yahweh.”
Psalm 40 has a simple title of David with the notation to the choirmaster leader. David had waited patiently for Yahweh. However, Yahweh heard his call and leaned down to him. He took him out of the desolate pit and the slimy bog. He put his feet on solid rock and make his steps secure. With that there was a new song of praise for God that came out of his mouth. Thus many people have seen, feared, and trusted in Yahweh.
