Psalm 41[a]

Thanksgiving After Sickness

For the leader. A psalm of David.

The Lord keeps and preserves him,
    makes him blessed in the land,
    and does not betray him to his enemies.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 41 A thanksgiving for rescue from illness (Ps 41:4, 5, 9). Many people, even friends, have interpreted the illness as a divine punishment for sin and have ostracized the psalmist (Ps 41:5–11). The healing shows the return of God’s favor and rebukes the psalmist’s detractors (Ps 41:12–13).
  2. 41:2 Blessed the one concerned for the poor: cf. Ps 32:1–2; 34:9; 40:5; 65:5. The psalmist’s statement about God’s love of the poor is based on the experience of being rescued (Ps 41:1–3).
