Psalm 41

2 Blessed is he who has concern for the poor.

 In time of trouble, the LORD will rescue him.

3 The LORD will guard him, give him life,

 and make him blessed in the land,

 not give him up to the will of his foes.

4 The LORD will help him on his bed of pain;

 you will bring him back from sickness to health.

5 As for me, I said, “LORD, have mercy on me;

 heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.”

 6 My foes are speaking evil against me:

 “How long before he dies, and his name be forgotten?”

 7 When someone comes to visit me, he speaks empty words;

 his heart stores up malice; on leaving, he spreads lies.

8 All my foes whisper together against me;

 they devise evil plots against me:

 9 “Something deadly has fastened upon him;

 he will not rise from where he lies.”

10 Thus even my friend, in whom I trusted,

 who ate my bread,

 has lifted his heel against me.

11 But you, O LORD, have mercy on me.

 Raise me up and I will repay them.

 12 By this I know your favor:

 that my foes do not triumph over me.

 13 In my integrity you have upheld me,

 and have set me in your presence forever.

* * *

 [14] Blest be the LORD, the God of Israel,

 from age to age. Amen. Amen.
