O Lord, Be Gracious to Me
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.1 a Blessed is the one who considers the poor! ▼
c In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him;
2the Lord protects him and keeps him alive;
he is called blessed in the land;
you d do not give him up to the will of his enemies.
3The Lord sustains him on his sickbed;
in his illness you restore him to full health. ▼
▼Hebrew you turn all his bed
4 As for me, I said, “O Lord, f be gracious to me;
g heal me, ▼
▼Hebrew my soulfor I have sinned against you!”
5My enemies say of me in malice,
“When will he die, and his name perish?”
6And when one comes to see me, i he utters empty words,
while his heart gathers iniquity;
when he goes out, he tells it abroad.
7All who hate me whisper together about me;
they imagine the worst for me. ▼
▼Or they devise evil against me
8 They say, “A deadly thing is poured out ▼
▼Or has fastenedon him;
he will not rise again from where he lies.”
9Even my l close friend in whom I trusted,
who m ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
10But you, O Lord, be gracious to me,
and raise me up, that I may repay them!
11 By this I know that n you delight in me:
my enemy will not shout in triumph over me.
12But o you have upheld me because of p my integrity,
and q set me in your presence r forever.
13 s Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting!
Amen and Amen.
