For the director of music. A psalm of David. ·Happy [Blessed] are those who ·think about [or care for] the poor [James 1:27]. ·When trouble comes [L In the day of trouble/evil], the Lord will ·save [rescue; T deliver] them.
1 David being grievously afflicted, blesseth them that pity his case, 9 and complaineth of the treason of his own friends and familiars, as came to pass in Judas, John 13:18. After he feeling the great mercies of God gently chastising him, and not suffering his enemies to triumph against him, 13 giveth most hearty thanks to God.To him that excelleth. A Psalm of David. Blessed is he that judgeth wisely of the poor: the Lord shall deliver him in the time of trouble.
A David Psalm Dignify those who are down on their luck; you’ll feel good—that’s what God does. God looks after us all, makes us robust with life— Lucky to be in the land, we’re free from enemy worries. Whenever we’re sick and in bed, God becomes our nurse, nurses us back to health.
For victory, the song of David. Blessed is he that understandeth of the needy man and poor; the Lord shall deliver him in the evil day. (To victory, the psalm of David. Happy is he who hath concern for the poor and the needy; the Lord shall save him on the evil day/the Lord shall rescue him in his time of trouble.)
