Psalms 41

The Psalmist in Sickness Complains of Enemies and False Friends.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

How blessed is he who a considers the
Or poor
The  Lord will deliver him c in a day of
Or evil
The  Lord will e protect him and keep him alive,
And he shall
Or be blessed
be called g blessed upon the earth;
And h do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.
The  Lord will sustain him upon his sickbed;
In his illness, You
Lit turn all his bed
restore him to health.

As for me, I said, “O  Lord, be gracious to me;
j Heal my soul, for k I have sinned against You.”
My enemies l speak evil against me,
When will he die, and his name perish?”
Or if he
when he comes to see me, he n speaks
Or emptiness
His heart gathers wickedness to itself;
When he goes outside, he tells it.
All who hate me whisper together against me;
Against me they p devise my hurt, saying,
A wicked thing is poured out
Or within
upon him,
That when he lies down, he will r not rise up again.”
Even my s close friend in whom I trusted,
Who ate my bread,
Has lifted up his heel against me.

10 But You, O  Lord, be gracious to me and t raise me up,
That I may repay them.
11 By this I know that u You are pleased with me,
Because v my enemy does not shout in triumph over me.
12 As for me, w You uphold me in my integrity,
And You set me x in Your presence forever.

13  y Blessed be the  Lord, the God of Israel,
From everlasting to everlasting.
Amen and Amen.
