Psalms 41

41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: Jehovah will deliver him in the day of evil.
41:2 Jehovah will preserve him, and keep him alive, And he shall be blessed upon the earth; And deliver not thou him unto the will of his enemies.
41:3 Jehovah will support him upon the couch of languishing: Thou makest all his bed in his sickness.
41:4 I said, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me: Heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
41:5 Mine enemies speak evil against me, `saying', When will he die, and his name perish?
41:6 And if he come to see `me', he speaketh falsehood; His heart gathereth iniquity to itself: When he goeth abroad, he telleth it.
41:7 All that hate me whisper together against me; Against me do they devise my hurt.
41:8 An evil disease, `say they', cleaveth fast unto him; And now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, Who did eat of my bread, Hath lifted up his heel against me.
41:10 But thou, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me, and raise me up, That I may requite them.
41:11 By this I know that thou delightest in me, Because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
41:12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, And settest me before thy face for ever.
41:13 Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, From everlasting and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen. Psalm 42 For the Chief Musician. Maschil of the sons of Korah.
