Psalm 40:4-6 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Blessing after blessing comes to those who love and trust the Lord.
They will not fall away,
for they refuse to listen to the lies of the proud.
O Lord, our God, no one can compare with you.
Such wonderful works and miracles are all found with you!
And you think of us all the time
with your countless expressions of love—
far exceeding our expectations!
It’s not sacrifices that really move your heart.
Burnt offerings, sin offerings—that’s not what brings you joy.
But when you open my ears and speak deeply to me,
I become your willing servant, your prisoner of love for life.[a]


  1. Psalm 40:6 The Septuagint is “a body you have prepared for me.” The Hebrew says, “You have pierced my ear.” This is a Hebraic reference to being a bond servant whose ear has been pierced by his master to signify a desire to serve for life. See Ex. 21:1-6; Isa. 50:5; Heb. 10:5.
