Psalm 41

The Psalmist in Sickness Complains of Enemies and False Friends.

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1Blessed [by God’s grace and compassion] is he who considers the helpless;
The Lord will save him in the day of trouble.

The Lord will protect him and keep him alive;
And he will be called blessed in the land;
You do not hand him over to the desire of his enemies.

The Lord will sustain and strengthen him on his sickbed;
In his illness, You will restore him to health.


As for me, I said, “O Lord, be gracious to me;
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You.”

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

And when one comes to see me, he speaks empty words,
While his heart gathers malicious gossip [against me];
When he goes away, he tells it [everywhere].

All who hate me whisper together about me;
Against me they devise my hurt [imagining the worst for me], saying,

“A wicked thing is poured out upon him and holds him;
And when he lies down, he will not rise up again.”

Even my own close friend in whom I trusted,
Who ate my bread,
Has lifted up his heel against me [betraying me].

10 
But You, O Lord, be gracious to me and [a]restore me [to health],
So that I may repay them.
11 
By this I know that You favor and delight in me,
Because my enemy does not shout in triumph over me.
12 
As for me, You uphold me in my integrity,
And You set me in Your presence forever.

13 
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
From everlasting to everlasting [from this age to the next, and forever].
Amen and Amen (so be it).

诗篇 41

病中的祷告

大卫的诗,交给乐长。

1善待穷人的有福了!
耶和华必救他们脱离困境。
耶和华必保护他们,
救他们的性命,
使他们在地上享福,
不让仇敌恶谋得逞。
他们生病在床,
耶和华必看顾,
使他们康复。
我祷告说:“耶和华啊,
求你怜悯我,医治我,
因为我得罪了你。”
我的仇敌恶狠狠地说:
“他何时才会死,
并且被人遗忘呢?”
他们来看我时,
心怀恶意,满口谎言,
出去后散布流言。
所有恨我的人都交头接耳,
设计害我。
他们说:“他患了恶病,
再也起不来了!”
连我所信赖、吃我饭的挚友也用脚踢我。
10 耶和华啊,
求你怜悯我,叫我痊愈,
我好报复他们。
11 我知道你喜悦我,
因为你没有让仇敌胜过我。
12 你因我正直而扶持我,
让我永远侍立在你面前。
13 从亘古到永远,
以色列的上帝耶和华当受称颂。
阿们!阿们!
