Blessed is the person
    who places his confidence in the Lord
        and does not rely on arrogant people
            or those who follow lies.
You have done many miraculous things, O Lord my God.
You have made many wonderful plans for us.
    No one compares to you!
I will tell others about your miracles,
    which are more than I can count.

You were not pleased with sacrifices and offerings.
You have dug out two ears for me.[a]
You did not ask for burnt offerings or sacrifices for sin.
