For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 aBlessed are those who have regard for the weak; the LORD delivers them in times of trouble.
2 The LORD protects and preserves them— they are counted among the blessed in the land— he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.
3 The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness.
4 I said, “Have mercy on me, LORD; heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
