(A)In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted,
    but you have given me an open (B)ear.[a]
Burnt offering and sin offering
    you have not required.
Then I said, “Behold, I have come;
    in the scroll of the book it is written (C)of me:
(D)I delight to do your will, O my God;
    your law is (E)within my heart.”

I have told the glad news of deliverance[b]
    in (F)the great congregation;
behold, I have not (G)restrained my lips,
    (H)as you know, O Lord.
10 I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart;
    I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation;
I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness
    from the great congregation.

11 As for you, O Lord, you will not restrain
    your mercy from me;
your (I)steadfast love and your faithfulness will
    ever preserve me!
