Psalm 41

Assurance of God’s Help and a Plea for Healing

To the leader. A Psalm of David.
1 Happy are those who consider the poor;*
   the Lord delivers them in the day of trouble.
2 The Lord protects them and keeps them alive;
   they are called happy in the land.
   You do not give them up to the will of their enemies.
3 The Lord sustains them on their sickbed;
   in their illness you heal all their infirmities.*


4 As for me, I said, ‘O Lord, be gracious to me;
   heal me, for I have sinned against you.’
5 My enemies wonder in malice
   when I will die, and my name perish.
6 And when they come to see me, they utter empty words,
   while their hearts gather mischief;
   when they go out, they tell it abroad.
7 All who hate me whisper together about me;
   they imagine the worst for me.


8 They think that a deadly thing has fastened on me,
   that I will not rise again from where I lie.
9 Even my bosom friend in whom I trusted,
   who ate of my bread, has lifted the heel against me.
10 But you, O Lord, be gracious to me,
   and raise me up, that I may repay them.


11 By this I know that you are pleased with me;
   because my enemy has not triumphed over me.
12 But you have upheld me because of my integrity,
   and set me in your presence for ever.


13 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
   from everlasting to everlasting.Amen and Amen.

Psalm 52

Judgement on the Deceitful

To the leader. A Maskil of David, when Doeg the Edomite came to Saul and said to him, ‘David has come to the house of Ahimelech.’
1 Why do you boast, O mighty one,
   of mischief done against the godly?*
   All day long 2you are plotting destruction.
Your tongue is like a sharp razor,
   you worker of treachery.
3 You love evil more than good,
   and lying more than speaking the truth.
          Selah
4 You love all words that devour,
   O deceitful tongue.


5 But God will break you down for ever;
   he will snatch and tear you from your tent;
   he will uproot you from the land of the living.
          Selah
6 The righteous will see, and fear,
   and will laugh at the evildoer,* saying,
7 ‘See the one who would not take
   refuge in God,
but trusted in abundant riches,
   and sought refuge in wealth!’*


8 But I am like a green olive tree
   in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God
   for ever and ever.
9 I will thank you for ever,
   because of what you have done.
In the presence of the faithful
   I will proclaim* your name, for it is good.
