Psalms 41 (asv)

Psalms 41 (asv)

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

41:1Blessed is he that considereth the poor:

Jehovah will deliver him in the day of evil.

41:2Jehovah will preserve him, and keep him alive,

And he shall be blessed upon the earth;

And deliver not thou him unto the will of his enemies.

41:3Jehovah will support him upon the couch of languishing:

Thou makest all his bed in his sickness.

41:4I said, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me:

Heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

41:5Mine enemies speak evil against me, saying,

When will he die, and his name perish?

41:6And if he come to see me, he speaketh falsehood;

His heart gathereth iniquity to itself:

When he goeth abroad, he telleth it.

41:7All that hate me whisper together against me;

Against me do they devise my hurt.

41:8An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him;

And now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.

41:9Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted,

Who did eat of my bread,

Hath lifted up his heel against me.

41:10But thou, O Jehovah, have mercy upon me, and raise me up,

That I may requite them.

41:11By this I know that thou delightest in me,

Because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.

41:12And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity,

And settest me before thy face for ever.

41:13Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel,

From everlasting and to everlasting.

Amen, and Amen.
