|<< Psalm 41 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Blessed is he who regards the poor, for in the day of evil, Lord Jehovah will set him free.
2Lord Jehovah will keep him and will give him life, and will bless him in the Earth and will not hand him over to his enemies.
3Lord Jehovah will sustain him upon the bed of his afflictions and will change all his bed in his sickness.
4I have said, “You are my Lord; have mercy on me and heal my soul, because I have sinned against you.”
5My enemies speak evil against me: “But when does he die and his Name perish?”
6When they have come to see me, they have been speaking lies and planning evil in their heart; they have been going into the street and talking.
7All who hated me whispered against me together and they have conceived evil against me.
8They were meditating on a word of evil: “Now that he lies down, he will rise no more.”
9Even a man invoking my peace, in whom I trusted, ate my bread, for I trusted in him; he was very treacherous against me.
10And you, Lord Jehovah, show mercy upon me and raise me up, that I may repay them.
11In this I have known that you are pleased with me, because my enemy does not harm me.
12But you have supported me in my perfection, and you have established me before you for eternity.
13Blessed is Lord Jehovah, God of Israel, from eternity and unto eternity. Amen and amen!
