The Poor and Needy - Psalm 40

I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and  heard my cry.  Psalm 40:1  KJV

Psalm 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry  clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.  

Psalm 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our  God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.    

Psalm 40:4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and  respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.  

Psalm 40:5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast  done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be  reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak  of them, they are more than can be numbered.  

Psalm 40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast  thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not  required.

Psalm 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my  heart.  

Psalm 40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I  have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

Psalm 40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy  lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.  

Psalm 40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities  have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they  are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth  me.  

Psalm 40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help  me.  

Psalm 40:14 Let 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.  

Psalm 40:15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto  me, Aha, aha.  

Psalm 40:16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let  such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.  

Psalm 40:17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me:  thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.  KJV
