1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David.(41:2)Happy is he that careth for the poor: on the day of evil will the Lord deliver him.
2 (41:3)The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; he shall be made happy on the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the revengeful desire of his enemies.
3 (41:4)The Lord will sustain him upon the bed of painful disease: thou changest all his couch in his sickness.
4 (41:5)I said, Lord, be gracious unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
5 (41:6)My enemies speak evil of me, When will he die, and his name perish?
6 (41:7)And if he come to see me, he speaketh falsely: his heart gathereth wickedness to itself; he goeth abroad and speaketh it.
7 (41:8)Altogether whisper against me all that hate me: against me do they devise my injury.
8 (41:9)"His godless deed say they is poured out over him: as he lieth there he will never more rise up again."
9 (41:10)Yea, even the man that should have sought my welfare, in whom I trusted, who eateth my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
10 (41:11)But thou, O Lord, be gracious unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite it unto them.
11 (41:12)By this do I know that thou art pleased with me, that my enemy doth not triumph over me.
12 (41:13)But as for me, thou upholdest me in my integrity, and placest me before thy presence for ever.
13 (41:14)Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen. BEGIM
