To the choir director. A Psalm of David

Ps 41:1Blessed is he who considers the poor; / In the day of evil Jehovah will deliver him.

Ps 41:2May Jehovah keep him and preserve him alive; / May he be blessed in the land; / And do not give him over to the will of his enemies.

Ps 41:3Jehovah will sustain him on his sickbed; / You make all his bed in his illness.

Ps 41:4I said, O Jehovah, be gracious to me; / Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You.

Ps 41:5My enemies speak evil against me: / When will he die and his name perish?

Ps 41:6And if he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood. / His heart gathers iniquity to itself; / When he goes out, he speaks it.

Ps 41:7All who hate me whisper together against me; / Against me they devise my misfortune.

Ps 41:8Some evil illness, they say, has been poured out on him; / And when he lies down, he will not rise again.

Ps 41:9Even my familiar friend, in whom I trusted, / Who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.

Ps 41:10But You, O Jehovah, be gracious to me and raise me up / That I may recompense them.

Ps 41:11By this I know that You delight in me, / That my enemy has not shouted in triumph over me.

Ps 41:12And as for me, You uphold me in my integrity, / And You set me in Your presence forever.

Ps 41:13Blessed be Jehovah the God of Israel, / From eternity to eternity. / Amen and Amen.
