Psalm 40:6-10 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
You open my ears to listen.[a]
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering.
Then I said, “See, I have come;
it is written about me in the volume of the scroll.
I delight to do Your will, my God;
Your instruction lives within me.”[b]

I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly;
see, I do not keep my mouth closed[c]
as You know, Lord.
10 I did not hide Your righteousness in my heart;
I spoke about Your faithfulness and salvation;
I did not conceal Your constant love and truth
from the great assembly.


  1. Psalm 40:6 Lit You hollow out ears for me
  2. Psalm 40:8 Lit instruction within my inner being
  3. Psalm 40:9 Lit not restrain my lips
