PSALMS · Chapter 41
41:1 Blessed is he that considers the poor: the LORD will deliver him
in time of trouble.
41:2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and you will not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
41:3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: you will make all his bed in his sickness.
41:4 I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against you.
41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
41:6 And if he comes to see me, he speaks vanity: his heart gathers iniquity to itself; when he goes abroad, he tells it.
41:7 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.
41:8 An evil disease, say they, cleaves fast unto him: and now that he lies he shall rise up no more.
41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
41:10 But you, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
41:11 By this I know that you favour me, because mine enemy does not triumph over me.
41:12 And as for me, you uphold me in mine integrity, and set me before your face for ever.
41:13 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
