Psalm 41:4-9 Holman Christian Standard Bible
I said, “Lord, be gracious to me;
heal me, for I have sinned against You.”
My enemies speak maliciously about me:
“When will he die and be forgotten?”
When one of them comes to visit, he speaks deceitfully;
he stores up evil in his heart;
he goes out and talks.
All who hate me whisper together about me;
they plan to harm me.
“Lethal poison has been poured into him,
and he won’t rise again from where he lies!”
Even my friend in whom I trusted,
one who ate my bread,
has raised his heel against me.
