1Blessed is he who considers the weak. Yahweh will deliver him in a time of distress.
2Yahweh will keep watch over and preserve his life. He will bless him in the land. And will not give him over to the desire of his enemies.
3Yahweh will support him on his sickbed, you restore his entire bed in his illness.
4I said, “O Yahweh, be gracious to me! Heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.”
5My enemies speak evil against me: “When will he die, and his name perish?”
6And even if one comes to see me, he speaks empty words. His heart gathers wickedness to itself. When he goes outside, he tells it.
7All who hate me whisper together against me. They devise injury for me.
8They say, “A word from Belial is poured out upon him. Now that he lies he will rise up no more.”
9Even my close friend whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.
10But you, O Yahweh, please show me favor, and raise me up that I may repay them.
11By this I know that you delight in me, because my enemy does not raise a shout of triumph over me.
12As for me, you support me in my blamelessness, and cause me to stand in your presence forever.
13Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, from everlasting and to everlasting! Amen and amen.
