1 I waited patiently for Yahweh. He turned to me, and heard my cry.

1 לַ֝מְנַצֵּ֗חַ לְדָוִ֥ד מִזְמֹֽור׃

2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay. He set my feet on a rock, And gave me a firm place to stand.

2 קַוֹּ֣ה קִוִּ֣יתִי יְהוָ֑ה וַיֵּ֥ט אֵ֝לַ֗י וַיִּשְׁמַ֥ע שַׁוְעָתִֽי׃

3 He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God. Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in Yahweh.

3 וַיַּעֲלֵ֤נִי׀ מִבֹּ֥ור שָׁאֹון֮ מִטִּ֪יט הַיָּ֫וֵ֥ן וַיָּ֖קֶם עַל־סֶ֥לַע רַגְלַ֗י כֹּונֵ֥ן אֲשֻׁרָֽי׃

4 Blessed is the man who makes Yahweh his trust, And doesn't respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

4 וַיִּתֵּ֬ן בְּפִ֨י׀ שִׁ֥יר חָדָשׁ֮ תְּהִלָּ֪ה לֵֽאלֹ֫הֵ֥ינוּ יִרְא֣וּ רַבִּ֣ים וְיִירָ֑אוּ וְ֝יִבְטְח֗וּ בַּיהוָֽה׃

5 Many, Yahweh, my God, are the wonderful works which you have done, And your thoughts which are toward us. They can't be set in order to you; If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

5 אַ֥שְֽׁרֵי הַגֶּ֗בֶר אֲשֶׁר־שָׂ֣ם יְ֭הֹוָה מִבְטַחֹ֑ו וְֽלֹא־פָנָ֥ה אֶל־רְ֝הָבִ֗ים וְשָׂטֵ֥י כָזָֽב׃

6 Sacrifice and offering you didn't desire. You have opened my ears: Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required.

6 רַבֹּ֤ות עָשִׂ֨יתָ׀ אַתָּ֤ה׀ יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהַי֮ נִֽפְלְאֹתֶ֥יךָ וּמַחְשְׁבֹתֶ֗יךָ אֵ֫לֵ֥ינוּ אֵ֤ין׀ עֲרֹ֬ךְ אֵלֶ֗יךָ אַגִּ֥ידָה וַאֲדַבֵּ֑רָה עָ֝צְמ֗וּ מִסַּפֵּֽר׃

7 Then I said, "Behold, I have come. It is written about me in the book in the scroll.

7 זֶ֤בַח וּמִנְחָ֨ה׀ לֹֽא־חָפַ֗צְתָּ אָ֭זְנַיִם כָּרִ֣יתָ לִּ֑י עֹולָ֥ה וַ֝חֲטָאָ֗ה לֹ֣א שָׁאָֽלְתָּ׃

8 I delight to do your will, my God. Yes, your law is within my heart."

8 אָ֣ז אָ֭מַרְתִּי הִנֵּה־בָ֑אתִי בִּמְגִלַּת־סֵ֝֗פֶר כָּת֥וּב עָלָֽי׃

9 I have proclaimed glad news of righteousness in the great assembly. Behold, I will not seal my lips, Yahweh, you know.

9 לַֽעֲשֹֽׂות־רְצֹונְךָ֣ אֱלֹהַ֣י חָפָ֑צְתִּי וְ֝תֹ֥ורָתְךָ֗3 בְּתֹ֣וךְ מֵעָֽי׃

10 I have not hidden your righteousness within my heart. I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation. I have not concealed your loving kindness and your truth from the great assembly.

10 בִּשַּׂ֤רְתִּי צֶ֨דֶק׀ בְּקָ֘הָ֤ל רָ֗ב הִנֵּ֣ה פָתַי לֹ֣א אֶכְלָ֑א יְ֝הוָ֗ה אַתָּ֥ה יָדָֽעְתָּ׃

11 Don't withhold your tender mercies from me, Yahweh. Let your loving kindness and your truth continually preserve me.

11 צִדְקָתְךָ֬ לֹא־כִסִּ֨יתִי׀ בְּתֹ֬וךְ לִבִּ֗י3 אֱמוּנָתְךָ֣ וּתְשׁוּעָתְךָ֣ אָמָ֑רְתִּי לֹא־כִחַ֥דְתִּי חַסְדְּךָ֥ וַ֝אֲמִתְּךָ֗ לְקָהָ֥ל רָֽב׃

12 For innumerable evils have surrounded me. My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up. They are more than the hairs of my head. My heart has failed me.

12 אַתָּ֤ה יְהוָ֗ה לֹא־תִכְלָ֣א רַחֲמֶ֣יךָ מִמֶּ֑נִּי חַסְדְּךָ֥ וַ֝אֲמִתְּךָ֗ תָּמִ֥יד יִצְּרֽוּנִי׃

13 Be pleased, Yahweh, to deliver me. Hurry to help me, Yahweh.

13 כִּ֤י אָפְפ֥וּ־עָלַ֨י׀ רָעֹ֡ות עַד־אֵ֬ין מִסְפָּ֗ר הִשִּׂיג֣וּנִי עֲ֭וֹנֹתַי וְלֹא־יָכֹ֣לְתִּי לִרְאֹ֑ות עָצְמ֥וּ מִשַּֽׂעֲרֹ֥ות רֹ֝אשִׁ֗י וְלִבִּ֥י עֲזָבָֽנִי׃

14 Let them be disappointed and confounded together who seek after my soul to destroy it. Let them be turned backward and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt.

14 רְצֵ֣ה יְ֭הוָה לְהַצִּילֵ֑נִי יְ֝הוָ֗ה לְעֶזְרָ֥תִי חֽוּשָׁה׃

15 Let them be desolate by reason of their shame that tell me, "Aha! Aha!"

15 יֵ֘בֹ֤שׁוּ וְיַחְפְּר֨וּ׀ יַחַד֮ מְבַקְשֵׁ֥י נַפְשִׁ֗י לִסְפֹּ֫ותָ֥הּ יִסֹּ֣גוּ אָ֭חֹור וְיִכָּלְמ֑וּ חֲ֝פֵצֵ֗י רָעָתִֽי׃

16 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. Let such as love your salvation say continually, "Let Yahweh be exalted!"

16 יָ֭שֹׁמּוּ עַל־עֵ֣קֶב בָּשְׁתָּ֑ם הָאֹמְרִ֥ים לִ֝֗י הֶאָ֥ח׀ הֶאָֽח׃

17 But I am poor and needy; May the Lord think about me. You are my help and my deliverer. Don't delay, my God.

17 יָ֘שִׂ֤ישׂוּ וְיִשְׂמְח֨וּ׀ בְּךָ֗ כָּֽל־מְבַ֫קְשֶׁ֥יךָ יֹאמְר֣וּ תָ֭מִיד יִגְדַּ֣ל יְהוָ֑ה אֹֽ֝הֲבֵ֗י תְּשׁוּעָתֶֽךָ׃
