Blessed is he who considers the apoor
In the day of evil Jehovah will deliver him.
May Jehovah keep him and preserve him alive;
May he be 1blessed
in the land;
And do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.
Jehovah will sustain him on his sickbed;
You make all his bed in his illness.
I said, O Jehovah, 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 if he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood.
His heart gathers iniquity to itself;
When he goes out, he speaks it.
All who hate me whisper together against me;
Against me they devise my misfortune.
evil illness, they say, has been poured out on him;
And when he lies down, he will not rise again.
my familiar afriend
, in whom I trusted, bWho cate
my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
But You, O Jehovah, be gracious to me and raise me up
That I may 1recompense
By this I know that You delight in me,
That my enemy has not shouted in triumph over me.
And as for me, You uphold me in my 1integrity
And You set me in Your presence forever.
be Jehovah the God of Israel,
From eternity to eternity. bAmen
