New Living Translation:
“Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord, who have no confidence in the proud or in those who worship idols.”(Psalms 40:4)
New English Translation:
“How blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord and does not seek help from the proud or from liars!”
“Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the man who makes the Lord his trust, And does not regard the proud nor those who lapse into lies.”
“Great blessings belong to those who trust in the Lord, for those who do not turn to demons and false gods for help.”
Beloved, trust in the Lord alone because in Him alone you can be safe and secured, all blessings, grace, peace and unspeakable joy will also characterize your life, above all, you will never be disappointed in Him. Put your hope in the Lord for hope in Him maketh not ashamed but instead you will be blessed in abundance for doing it. Never have trustful reliance in any man or any other source for help; not in the proud, vain or lying men, not in worldly power, wisdom, riches or earthly possessions but let your trustful reliance be in God your maker for you to experience His blessedness and joy.
