Psalms 40:6

Context
NET ©

Receiving sacrifices and offerings are not your primary concern. 1  You make that quite clear to me! 2  You do not ask for burnt sacrifices and sin offerings.

NIV ©

Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced; burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require.

NASB ©

Sacrifice and meal offering You have not desired; My ears You have opened; Burnt offering and sin offering You have not required.

NLT ©

You take no delight in sacrifices or offerings. Now that you have made me listen, I finally understand––you don’t require burnt offerings or sin offerings.

MSG ©

Doing something for you, bringing something to you--that's not what you're after. Being religious, acting pious--that's not what you're asking for. You've opened my ears so I can listen.

BBE ©

You had no desire for offerings of beasts or fruits of the earth; ears you made for me: for burned offerings and sin offerings you made no request.

NRSV ©

Sacrifice and offering you do not desire, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required.

NKJV ©

Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; My ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “sacrifice and offering you do not desire.” The statement is exaggerated for the sake of emphasis (see Ps 51:16 as well). God is pleased with sacrifices, but his first priority is obedience and loyalty (see 1 Sam 15:22). Sacrifices and offerings apart from genuine allegiance are meaningless (see Isa 1:11-20).

tn Heb “ears you hollowed out for me.” The meaning of this odd expression is debated (this is the only collocation of “hollowed out” and “ears” in the OT). It may have been an idiomatic expression referring to making a point clear to a listener. The LXX has “but a body you have prepared for me,” a reading which is followed in Heb 10:5.
