PSALMS 40:1-5 A PLUNGE INTO PATIENCE
THE DELIVERANCE OF GOD V.1-4
OUR EMANCIPATION V.1
OUR PERSISTENCE I waited patiently for the LORD;
HIS PARTICIPATION and he inclined unto me,
HIS PERCEPTION and heard my cry.
. OUR EVALUATION V.2
OF OUR DEPRESSION He brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
OF OUR DESPONDENCY out of the miry clay,
CLARITY and set my feet upon a rock,
CONFIRMATION and established my goings.
OUR ENJOYMENT V.3
CHEERFUL COMMUNICATION And he hath put a new song in my mouth,
COMPLIMENTARY CONTEMPLATION even praise unto our God
CLEANSING COMMENDATION many shall see it, and fear
CONFIDENCE CLARIFICATION and shall trust in the LORD
OUR ENCOURAGEMENT V.4
BE COURAGEOUS Blessed is that man
BE COMMITTED that makes the LORD
BE CONFIDANT his trust,
BE CONTROLLED and respects not the proud,
BE CAREFUL nor such as turn aside to lies.
THE DEPOSITORY OF GRACE V.5
ITS MULTIPLICITY Many,
ITS MAKER O LORD my God,
ITS MAGNIFICENCE are Your wonderful works which You have done
ITS MINUTENESS and Your thoughts which are to us-ward
ITS MEASURE they can’t be reckoned up in order unto You
ITS MEDITATION if I would declare and speak of them,
ITS MAGNITUDE they are more than can be numbered.
