Psalm 40:9 I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; see, I do not keep my mouth closed – as you know, Yahveh.
Psalm 40:10 I did not hide your righteousness in my heart; I spoke about your faithfulness and salvation; I did not conceal your covenant faithfulness and truth from the great assembly.
the great assembly
David’s patient faith in God for rescue paid off. He was rescued from the dilemma he faced, and now he can not keep from worshipping. What God did for him was great, and it deserves worship. There is room for a personal devotional life in every Christian. But there is also a need for us to come together in the great assembly. We should be constantly seeking ways to innovate and show our appreciation of God in corporate worship.
Lord, you have acted in love. We cannot keep silent about it.
