MKJV(i) 1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. Blessed is he who acts wisely toward the poor; Jehovah will deliver him in time of trouble. 2 Jehovah will watch over him and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed on the earth; and You will not deliver him to the soul of his enemies. 3 Jehovah will hold him up on the bed of sickness; You will change all his bed in his illness. 4 I said, Jehovah, be merciful to me; heal my soul; for I have sinned against You. 5 My enemies speak evil of me, saying, When will he die, and his name perish? 6 And when he comes to see me, he speaks vanity; his heart gathers iniquity to itself; he goes out and speaks of it. 7 All those hating me whisper against me; they plot evil against me. 8 They say, A wicked thing is poured out on him, and he who lies down shall rise no more. 9 Even a man, my friend, in whom I trusted, who ate of my bread, has lifted up his heel against me. 10 But You, O Jehovah, be merciful to me, and raise me up, so that I may repay them. 11 By this I know that You delight in me, because my enemy does not triumph over me. 12 And I, in my integrity You uphold me; and You set me before Your face forever. 13 Blessed is Jehovah, the God of Israel, from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen and Amen!
