Context
Blessed is He who Considers the Poor

1Blessed is he that considers the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. 2The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed on the earth: and you will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. 3The LORD will strengthen him on the bed of languishing: you will make all his bed in his sickness. 4I said, LORD, be merciful to me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against you. 5My enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish? 6And if he come to see me, he speaks vanity: his heart gathers iniquity to itself; when he goes abroad, he tells it. 7All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt. 8An evil disease, say they, sticks fast to him: and now that he lies he shall rise up no more. 9Yes, my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, has lifted up his heel against me. 10But you, O LORD, be merciful to me, and raise me up, that I may requite them. 11By this I know that you favor me, because my enemy does not triumph over me. 12And as for me, you uphold me in my integrity, and set me before your face for ever. 13Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
