Psalms 40(39):7-8a.8b-9.10.11.

Sacrifice or oblation you wished not, 
but ears open to obedience you gave me. 
Burnt offerings or sin-offerings you sought not; 
then said I, “Behold I come.” 

“In the written scroll it is prescribed for me, 
To do your will, O my God, is my delight, 
and your law is within my heart!” 

I announced your justice in the vast assembly; 
I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know. 

Your justice I kept not hid within my heart; 
your faithfulness and your salvation I have spoken of; 
I have made no secret of your kindness and your truth 
in the vast assembly.
