Quoted in: Hebrews 10:5-10
I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the LORD.
Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie! You have multiplied, O LORD my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.
In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required. Then I said, “Behold, I have come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me: I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”
Psalm 40:1-8 ESV
This is a prophecy of Christ’s voluntary sacrifice. The opening of the ear in verse 6 is symbolic of the dedication of a bond-servant to his master (Exodus 21:6). Jesus delighted to do God’s will, verse 8. How much of a pleasure is it for me to do God’s bidding?
