Chapter 41

41:1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.

41:2 Happy is he that considereth the poor; the Lord will deliver him in the day of evil.

41:3 the Lord preserve him, and keep him alive, let him be called happy in the land; and deliver not Thou him unto the greed of his enemies.

41:4 the Lord support him upon the bed of illness; mayest Thou turn all his lying down in his sickness.

41:5 As for me, I said: 'O the Lord, be gracious unto me; heal my soul; for I have sinned against Thee.'

41:6 Mine enemies speak evil of me: 'When shall he die, and his name perish?'

41:7 And if one come to see me, he speaketh falsehood; his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he speaketh of it.

41:8 All that hate me whisper together against me, against me do they devise my hurt:

41:9 'An evil thing cleaveth fast unto him; and now that he lieth, he shall rise up no more.'

41:10 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, who did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

41:11 But Thou, O the Lord, be gracious unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.

41:12 By this I know that Thou delightest in me, that mine enemy doth not triumph over me.

41:13 And as for me, Thou upholdest me because of mine integrity, and settest me before Thy face for ever.

41:14 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
