  1. For the conductor, a song of David.
  2. Praiseworthy is he who looks after the poor; on a day of calamity the Lord will rescue him.
  3. The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, and he will be praised in the land, and You will not deliver him into the desire of his enemies.
  4. The Lord will support him on his sickbed; when You have transformed his entire restfulness in his illness.
  5. I said, « O Lord, be gracious to me; heal my soul because I have sinned against You. »
  6. My enemies speak evil of me; « When will he die and his name be lost? »
  7. And if he comes to see [me], he speaks falsely; his heart gathers iniquity for him; when he goes outside, he talks.
  8. All my enemies whisper together about me; concerning me, they think evil.
  9. « An evil thing shall be poured into him, and once he lies down, he will no longer rise. »
  10. Even my ally, in whom I trusted, who eats my bread, developed an ambush for me.
  11. But You, O Lord, be gracious to me and raise me up, so that I may repay them.
  12. With this I shall know that You desired me, when my enemy does not shout joyfully over me.
  13. As for me, because of my innocence You shall support me, and stand me up before You forever.
  14. Blessed is the Lord, the God of Israel from all times past and to all times to come. Amen and amen.
