Tehillim (Psalms) 41
1Blessed is he who considers the poor; יהוה does deliver him in a day of evil.
2יהוה does guard him and keep him alive; He is blessed on the earth, And You do not hand him over To the desire of his enemies.
3יהוה sustains him on his sickbed; In his weakness on his bed You bring a change.
4As for me, I said, “O יהוה, show me favour; Heal me, for I have sinned against You.”
5My enemies speak evil of me, “When he dies his name shall perish.”
6And when one comes to visit, he speaks falsely; His heart gathers wickedness to itself; He goes out, he speaks of it.
7All who hate me whisper together against me; They plot evil to me, saying,
8A matter of Beliya‛al is poured out on him, That when he lies down, he would not rise again.
9Even my own friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, Has lifted up his heel against me.
10But You, יהוה, show me favour and raise me up, And let me repay them.
11By this I know that You did delight in me, Because my enemy does not shout for joy over me.
12And I, You uphold me in my integrity, And set me before Your face forever.
13Blessed be יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl From everlasting to everlasting! Amĕn and Amĕn.
