Psalms 40:7

_ _ Then — in such case, without necessarily referring to order of time.

_ _ Lo, I come — I am prepared to do, etc.

_ _ in the volume of the bookroll of the book. Such rolls, resembling maps, are still used in the synagogues.

_ _ written of me — or on me, prescribed to me (2 Kings 22:13). The first is the sense adopted by Paul. In either case, the Pentateuch, or law of Moses, is meant, and while it contains much respecting Christ directly, as Genesis 3:15; Genesis 49:10; Deuteronomy 18:15, and, indirectly, in the Levitical ritual, there is nowhere any allusion to David.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 40:7

Them — These words literally and truly belong to Christ, and the sense is this; seeing thou requirest a better sacrifice than those of the law, lo, I offer myself to come, and I will in due time come, into the world, as this phrase is explained in divers places of scripture, and particularly Hebrews 10:5, where this place is expressly applied to Christ. Volume — These two words, volume and book are used of any writing, and both express the same thing. Now this volume of the book is the law of Moses, which is commonly and emphatically called the book, and was made up in the form of a roll or volume, as the Hebrew books generally were. And so this place manifestly points to Christ, concerning whom much is said in the books of Moses.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 40:7

(g) Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [it is] written of me,

(g) When you had opened my ears and heart, I was ready to obey you, being assured that I was written in the book of your elect for this end.
