Psalm 40:1-3New King James Version (NKJV)

Faith Persevering in Trial

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

40 I waited patiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me,
And heard my cry.
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth—
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear,
And will trust in the Lord.

Psalm 40:1-3The Voice (VOICE)

Psalm 40

For the worship leader. A song of David.

I waited a long time for the Eternal;
    He finally knelt down to hear me.
    He listened to my weak and whispered cry.
He reached down and drew me
    from the deep, dark hole where I was stranded, mired in the muck and clay.
    With a gentle hand, He pulled me out
To set me down safely on a warm rock;
    He held me until I was steady enough to continue the journey again.
As if that were not enough,
    because of Him my mind is clearing up.
Now I have a new song to sing—
    a song of praise to the One who saved me.
Because of what He’s done, many people will see
    and come to trust in the Eternal.

Salmos 40:1-3Nueva Biblia Latinoamericana de Hoy (NBLH)

Dios Sustenta a Su Siervo

Para el director del coro. Salmo de David.

40 Esperé pacientemente al Señor,
Y El se inclinó a mí y oyó mi clamor.
Me sacó del hoyo de la destrucción, del lodo cenagoso;
Asentó mis pies sobre una roca y afirmó mis pasos.
Puso en mi boca un cántico nuevo, un canto de alabanza a nuestro Dios.
Muchos verán esto, y temerán
Y confiarán en el Señor.
