Psalm 40:4-6 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Blessed is the man that maketh the Lord his trust, and regardeth [a]not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

[b]O Lord my God, thou hast made thy wonderful works so many, that none can count in order to thee thy thoughts toward us: I would declare and speak of them, but they are more than I am able to express.

Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire: (for [c]mine ears hast thou prepared) burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.


  1. Psalm 40:4 To follow their example, which he must needs do that trusteth not only in the Lord.
  2. Psalm 40:5 David goeth from one kind of God’s favor to the contemplation of his providence over all, and confesseth that his counsels towards us are far above our capacities: we cannot so much as tell them in order.
  3. Psalm 40:6 Thou hast opened mine ears to understand the spiritual meaning of the sacrifices: and here David esteemeth the ceremonies of the law nothing in respect of the spiritual service.
