Psalm 41

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David
1 Blessed is he who gives attention to the poor; Jehovah will deliver him in the time of evil.
2 Jehovah will watch over him and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed on the earth; and You will not deliver him to the soul of his enemies.
3 Jehovah will sustain him on the bed of illness; You will change his bed of sickness.
4 I said, Jehovah, be merciful unto me; heal my soul; for I have sinned against You.
5 My enemies speak evil of me, saying, When will he die, and his name perish?
6 And when he comes to see me, he speaks vanity; his heart gathers iniquity to itself; he goes out and speaks of it.
7 All those who hate me whisper against me; they plot evil against me.
8 They say, A wicked thing is poured out upon him, and now that he lies down, he shall rise up no more.
9 Even the man of peace in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
10 But You, O Jehovah, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, so that I may repay them.
11 By this I know that You delight in me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.
12 As for me, You uphold me in my integrity, and set me before Your face forever.
13 Blessed is Jehovah the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
