Tehillim / Psalms 41, Part 1, David’s Struggle with His Enemies and Our Salvation in the Lord


This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 41:1-13, א   לַמְנַצֵּחַ מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד: ב   אַשְׁרֵי מַשְֹכִּיל אֶל-דָּל בְּיוֹם רָעָה יְמַלְּטֵהוּ יְהֹוָה: David opens the Psalm saying For the director of music. A psalm of David. 41:1 How blessed is he who considers the helpless; The Lord will deliver him in a day of trouble. (NASB)  What does it mean to consider the helpless?  David says that the person who considers the helpless will be delivered.  Does the Lord do things for us as a result of our doing something for Him?  David says  ג   יְהֹוָה | יִשְׁמְרֵהוּ וִיחַיֵּהוּ יְאֻשַּׁר [וְאֻשַּׁר] בָּאָרֶץ וְאַל-תִּתְּנֵהוּ בְּנֶפֶשׁ אֹיְבָיו: ד   יְהוָה יִסְעָדֶנּוּ עַל-עֶרֶשֹ דְּוָי כָּל-מִשְׁכָּבוֹ הָפַכְתָּ בְחָלְיוֹ:  41:2 The Lord will protect him and keep him alive, And he shall be called blessed upon the earth; And do not give him over to the desire of his enemies.  41:3 The Lord will sustain him upon his sickbed; In his illness, You restore him to health. (NASB)  The one who considers the helpless, the Hebrew text says the poor (דָּל) the Lord will sustain his life and even heal him when he is laying on his bed sick.  Read More Here: Tehillim 41-Part1
