Psalm 40:4-6 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Great blessings belong to those who trust in the Lord,
    for those who do not turn to demons and false gods[a] for help.
Lord my God, you have done many amazing things!
    You have made great plans for us—too many to list.
I could talk on and on about them,
    because there are too many to count.

Lord, you made me understand this:[b]
    You don’t really want sacrifices and grain offerings.
    You don’t want burnt offerings and sin offerings.
