Amplified Bible

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).

詩篇 41

病中的禱告

大衛的詩,交給樂長。

1善待窮人的有福了!
耶和華必救他們脫離困境。
耶和華必保護他們,
救他們的性命,
使他們在地上享福,
不讓仇敵惡謀得逞。
他們生病在床,
耶和華必看顧,
使他們康復。
我禱告說:「耶和華啊,
求你憐憫我,醫治我,
因為我得罪了你。」
我的仇敵惡狠狠地說:
「他何時才會死,
並且被人遺忘呢?」
他們來看我時,
心懷惡意,滿口謊言,
出去後散佈流言。
所有恨我的人都交頭接耳,
設計害我。
他們說:「他患了惡病,
再也起不來了!」
連我所信賴、吃我飯的摯友也用腳踢我。
10 耶和華啊,
求你憐憫我,叫我痊癒,
我好報復他們。
11 我知道你喜悅我,
因為你沒有讓仇敵勝過我。
12 你因我正直而扶持我,
讓我永遠侍立在你面前。
13 從亙古到永遠,
以色列的上帝耶和華當受稱頌。
阿們!阿們!
