In Psalm 40, David bears witness to what God has done in the past. He has delivered the psalmist from the miry clay and set his feet upon a firm rock. Now, however, as new evils have come upon him, his sins are suffocating him and his enemies are in pursuit. The psalmist once again needs God’s forgiveness and freedom from those who wish him evil. He sees himself as “poor and needy,” and he eagerly calls upon the Lord to deliver him.
