Salmos 41

Al director musical. Salmo de David.

1Dichoso el que piensa en el débil;
    el Señor lo librará en el día de la desgracia.
El Señor lo protegerá y lo mantendrá con vida;
    lo hará dichoso en la tierra
    y no lo entregará al capricho de sus adversarios.
El Señor lo confortará cuando esté enfermo;
    lo alentará en el lecho del dolor.

Yo he dicho:
«Señor, compadécete de mí;
    sáname, pues contra ti he pecado».
Con saña dicen de mí mis enemigos:
    «¿Cuándo se morirá?
    ¿Cuándo pasará al olvido?»
Si vienen a verme, no son sinceros;
    recogen calumnias y salen a contarlas.

Mis enemigos se juntan y cuchichean contra mí;
    me hacen responsable de mi mal. Dicen:
«Lo que le ha sobrevenido es cosa del demonio;
    de esa cama no volverá a levantarse».
Hasta mi mejor amigo, en quien yo confiaba
    y que compartía el pan conmigo,
    me ha puesto la zancadilla.

10 Pero tú, Señor, compadécete de mí;
    haz que vuelva a levantarme
    para darles su merecido.
11 En esto sabré que te he agradado:
    en que mi enemigo no triunfe sobre mí.
12 Por mi integridad habrás de sostenerme,
    y en tu presencia me mantendrás para siempre.

13 Bendito sea el Señor, el Dios de Israel,
    por los siglos de los siglos.

Amén y amén.

Psalm 41

The Psalmist in Sickness Complains of Enemies and False Friends.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1How blessed is he who considers the [a]helpless;
The Lord will deliver him in a day of [b]trouble.
The Lord will protect him and keep him alive,
And he shall [c]be called blessed upon the earth;
And do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.
The Lord will sustain him upon his sickbed;
In his illness, You [d]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 against me,
“When will he die, and his name perish?”
And [e]when he comes to see me, he speaks [f]falsehood;
His heart gathers wickedness to itself;
When he goes outside, he tells it.
All who hate me whisper together against me;
Against me they devise my hurt, saying,
“A wicked thing is poured out [g]upon him,
That when he lies down, he will not rise up again.”
Even my close friend in whom I trusted,
Who ate my bread,
Has lifted up his heel against me.

10 But You, O Lord, be gracious to me and raise me up,
That I may repay them.
11 By this I know that You are pleased with 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.
Amen and Amen.
