Discover Psalm 41 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
Blessed is he who thinks of the poor;
in the day of evil the Lord will deliver him.
Jehovah will keep him, and keep him alive, and he will be blessed on earth;
and he will not hand it over to the will of his enemies.
Jehovah will sustain him on the bed of pain;
will soften your bed in sickness.
I said, O Lord, have mercy on me,
heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.
My enemies speak ill of me, asking:
When will his name die and perish?
And if anyone comes to see me, he speaks a lie;
his heart gathers iniquity for himself,
and when he goes out, he spreads it.
Gathered together, all those who hate me murmur against me;
They plot evil against me, saying:
A pestilence has seized him;
the one who fell into bed will never get up again.
Even the man of my peace, in whom I trusted, who ate my bread,
lifted up his heel against me.
But You, O Lord, have mercy on me and raise me up,
and I will repay them.
By this I know that you are pleased with me,
that my enemy does not claim victory over me.
As for me, you have sustained me in my integrity,
and have made me stand before you forever.
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
forever and ever. Amen and amen.
Psalm 41 Meaning
The meaning of Psalm 41 is very interesting, this psalm deals with David as he talks about two situations: on the one hand his suffering and on the other his consolation. Let’s analyze it:
David’s main suffering was criticism, his enemies had criticized him. Although David accepted the criticism, he did not like the malice with which it was directed.
The other point is comfort, David finds comfort in the words of God, those words that keep him firm in his thoughts.
