Tehilim Chapter 41

tehilim 041


1. To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
2. Happy is he who considers the poor; the Lord will save in the day of evil.
3. The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; he is called happy on earth; and you will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
4. The Lord will strengthen him on his sick bed; whenever he is prostrate you will heal all his illnesses.
5. I said, Lord, be merciful to me; heal my soul; for I have sinned against you.
6. My enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
7. And if one comes to see me, he speaks vanity; his heart gathers iniquity to itself; when he goes out, he tells it.
8. All who hate me whisper together against me; against me they plot my harm.
9. They say, An evil disease cleaves fast to him, and from where he lies he shall rise up no more.
10. Even my own close friend, in whom I trusted, who ate of my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
11. But you, O Lord, be gracious to me, and raise me up, that I may pay them back.
12. By this I know that you favor me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.
13. And as for me, you uphold me in my integrity, and you set me before your face for ever.
14. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
