Bible: Psalm 41:4-9
41:4 As for me, I said: 1
Heal me, for I have sinned against you!
41:5 My enemies ask this cruel question about me, 2
‘When will he finally die and be forgotten?’ 3
he thinks of ways to defame me, 6
and when he leaves he slanders me. 7
41:7 All who hate me whisper insults about me to one another; 8
they plan ways to harm me.
41:8 They say, 9
and now that he is bed-ridden he will never recover.’ 12
41:9 Even my close friend 13 whom I trusted,
he who shared meals with me, has turned against me. 14
