Psalm 41
A Faithful Version

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1Blessed is he who considers the poor; the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

2The LORD will watch over him and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth; and You will not deliver him over to the will of his enemies.

3The LORD will strengthen him upon his sickbed; You will sustain him in all his sickness.

4I said, "LORD, be gracious unto me; heal my soul, for I have sinned against You."

5My enemies speak evil of me, saying, "When will he die, and his name perish?"

6And if he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood; his heart gathers iniquity to itself; he goes out and speaks of it.

7All who hate me whisper against me; they plot evil against me.

8They say, "A wicked thing is poured out upon him, and he who lies down shall rise no more."

9Even a man, my close friend in whom I trusted, who ate of my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.

10But You, O LORD, be gracious unto me and raise me up, so that I may repay them.

11By this I know that You delight in me because my enemy does not triumph over me.

12And as for me, You uphold me in my integrity; and You set me before Your face forever.

13Blessed is the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen!
