1 To the overseer: chanting of David. Happy he attending to the weak one: in the day of evil Jehovah will deliver him. 2 Jehovah will watch him and preserve him alive; he shall be happy upon the earth, and thou wilt not give him to the soul of his enemies. 3 Jehovah will support him upon a bed of sickness: thou turnedst all his bed in his sickness.
4 I said, O Jehovah, pity me, heal my soul, for I sinned against thee. 5 Mine enemies will say evil to me: When shall he die, and his name perish? 6 And if he came to see, he will speak vanity: his heart will gather vanity to him; he will go forth without; he will speak. 7 Together, all hating me, will whisper against me: against one they will purpose evil to me. 8 A word of Belial will press upon him: and when he lay down, he will not add to rise up. 9 Also the man of my peace whom I trusted in him, eating my bread, magnified the heel against me.
10 And thou, O Jehovah, pity me and raise me up, and I will requite to them. 11 By this I knew that thou didst delight in me, for mine enemy will not shout over me. 12 And I, in mine integrity thou didst support me, and thou wilt set me before thy face forever.
