Psalm 39 : 2 and 4ab, 7-8a, 10, 11
With resolve I waited for the Lord; He listened and heard me beg. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God.
Sacrifice and oblation You did not desire; this You had me understand. Burnt offering and sin offering You do not require. Then I said, “Here I come!”
In the great assembly I have proclaimed Your saving help. My lips, o Lord, I did not seal – You know that very well.
I have not locked up in my heart Your saving help, but have spoken about it – Your deliverance and Your faithfulness. I have made no secret of Your truth and of Your kindness in the great assembly.
