Psalms

Psalm of the Compassionate.  Psalm 41(v40)

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1Blessed is he who considers the poor!
Yahweh delivers him in the day of trouble;
2Yahweh protects him and keeps him alive;
he is called blessed in the land;
you not give him up to the will of his enemies.
3Yahweh sustains him on his sickbed;
in his illness you heal all his infirmities.

4As for me, I said, " O Yahweh, be gracious to me;
heal me, for I have sinned against you!"
5My enemies say of me in malice:
"When will he die, and his name perish?"
6And when one comes to see me, he utters empty words,
while his heart gathers mischief;
when he goes out, he tells it abroad.
7All who hate me whisper together about me;
they imagine the worst for me.

8They say, "A deadly thing has fastened upon him;
he will not rise again from where he lies."
9Even my bosom friend in whom I trusted,
who ate of my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
10But be gracious to me, O Yahweh,
and raise me up, that I may requite them!

11By this I know that you are pleased with me,
in that my enemy has not triumphed over me.
12But you have upheld me because of my integrity,
and set me in your presence for ever.

13Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting!
Amen & Amen.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
