Psalms 41


The LORD Helps the Righteous

To the director; a psalm to David.

1Blessed is the one taking notice upon the poor and needy; [5in 7day 6the evil 3shall rescue 4him 1the 2  lord]. 2May the  lord guard him, and enliven him, and bless him in the land; and may he not deliver him into the hands of his enemies. 3Let the  lord help him upon the bed of his grief! [2all 3of his bed 1You turned] in his illness. 4I said, O  lord, show mercy on me! Heal my soul! for I sinned against you. 5 My enemies said bad things against me, saying, When shall he die and [2perish 1his name]? 6And if he entered to see me, [3folly 2spoke 1his heart]. He gathered lawlessness to himself; he went forth outside and spoke in the same manner. 7[4against 5me 3whispered 1All 2my enemies]; against me they devised bad things for me. 8[5matter 4an illegal 1They laid down 2against 3me], saying, Shall the one going to bed not proceed to rise up? 9For also the man of my peace upon whom I hoped, the one eating my bread loaves, magnified against me with trickery. 10But you, O  lord, show mercy on me, and raise me up, and recompense to them! 11By this I knew that you wanted me, that in no way should [2rejoice 1my enemy] over me. 12[3my 1But 2because of] innocence you assisted and firmed me up before you into the eon. 13Blessed be the  lord God of Israel, from the eon and into the eon. May it be, May it be.
