PSALM 40:10-16

A (10) I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and THY SALVATION: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

B (11) Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Yahweh: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth CONTINUALLY preserve me.

C (12) For innumerable EVILS have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

D (13) Be pleased, O Yahweh, to deliver me: O Yahweh, make haste to help me.

C1 (14) Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me EVIL.

B1 (15,16) Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha. Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee The LORD be magnified. say CONTINUALLY,

A1 (16)let such as love THY SALVATION

Note in Hebrew “salvation” in verse 16 comes after “continually”.
