Psalm of the Compassionate. Psalm 41(v40)[לַמְנַצֵּחַ מִזְמֹור לְדָוִד׃ ]
1 Happy the man who has a concern for the helpless!
The LORD will save him in time of trouble.
 אַשְׁרֵי מַשְׂכִּיל אֶל־דָּל בְּיֹום רָעָה יְמַלְּטֵהוּ יְהוָה׃
2 The LORD protects him and gives him life,
making him secure in the land;
the LORD never leaves him [never leaves him: prob. rdg, Heb do thou not give him up] to the greed of his enemies.
 יְהוָה יִשְׁמְרֵהוּ וִיחַיֵּהוּ {כ= יֶאְשֹּׁר} {ק= וְאֻשַּׁר} בָּאָרֶץ וְאַל־תִּתְּנֵהוּ בְּנֶפֶשׁ אֹיְבָיו׃
3 He nurses him on his sick-bed;
he turns his bed when he is ill.

 יְהוָה יִסְעָדֶנּוּ עַל־עֶרֶשׂ דְּוָי כָּל־מִשְׁכָּבֹו הָפַכְתָּ בְחָלְיֹו׃
4 But I said, 'LORD, be gracious to me;
heal me, for I have sinned against thee.'
 אֲנִי־אָמַרְתִּי יְהוָה חָנֵּנִי רְפָאָה נַפְשִׁי כִּי־חָטָאתִי לָךְ׃
5 'His case is desperate,' my enemies say;
'when will he die, and his line become extinct?'
 אֹויְבַי יֹאמְרוּ רַע לִי מָתַי יָמוּת וְאָבַד שְׁמֹו׃
6 All who visit me speak from an empty heart,
alert to gather bad news;
then they go out to spread it abroad.
 וְאִם־בָּא לִרְאֹות שָׁוְא יְדַבֵּר לִבֹּו יִקְבָּץ־אָוֶן לֹו יֵצֵא לַחוּץ יְדַבֵּר׃
7 All who hate me whisper together about me
and love to make the worst of everything:
 יַחַד עָלַי יִתְלַחֲשׁוּ כָּל־שֹׂנְאָי עָלַי יַחְשְׁבוּ רָעָה לִי׃
8 'An evil spell is cast upon him;
he is laid on his bed, and will rise no more.'
 דְּבַר־בְּלִיַּעַל יָצוּק בֹּו וַאֲשֶׁר שָׁכַב לֹא־יֹוסִיף לָקוּם׃
9 Even the friend whom I trusted, who ate at my table [who... table: or slanders me],
exults over my misfortune.
 גַּם־אִישׁ שְׁלֹומִי אֲשֶׁר־בָּטַחְתִּי בֹו אֹוכֵל לַחְמִי הִגְדִּיל עָלַי עָקֵב׃
10 O LORD, be gracious and restore me,
that I may pay them out to the full [to the full: transposed from end of v9].
 וְאַתָּה יְהוָה חָנֵּנִי וַהֲקִימֵנִי וַאֲשַׁלְּמָה לָהֶם׃
11 Then I shall know that thou delightest in me
and that my enemy will not triumph over me.
 בְּזֹאת יָדַעְתִּי כִּי־חָפַצְתָּ בִּי כִּי לֹא־יָרִיעַ אֹיְבִי עָלָי׃
12 But I am upheld by thee because of my innocence;
thou keepest me for ever in thy sight.

 וַאֲנִי בְּתֻמִּי תָּמַכְתָּ בִּי וַתַּצִּיבֵנִי לְפָנֶיךָ לְעֹולָם׃
13 Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.

Amen, Amen.
 בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵהָעֹולָם וְעַד הָעֹולָם אָמֵן וְאָמֵן׃
