Psalm 41:9 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Even my ally, my friend, has turned against me.
He was one I totally trusted with my life,
sharing supper with him,[a]
and now he shows me nothing but betrayal and treachery.
He has sold me as an enemy.[b]


  1. Psalm 41:9 In the culture of that day, sharing a meal together was a sign of covenant friendship.
  2. Psalm 41:9 The Hebrew literally reads “He lifted up his heel against me.” This is a powerful figure of speech meaning he was sold as an enemy and was treated treacherously. This verse was quoted, in part, by Jesus at the Last Supper (John 13:18).
