Blessed is the one who has regard for the lowly and the poor;
in the day of misfortune the LORD will deliver him.
The LORD will keep and preserve him;
and not give him over to the will of his enemies.
The LORD will help him on his sickbed,
he will take away all his ailment when he is ill.
But because of my integrity you sustained me
and let me stand before you forever.
from all eternity. Amen. Amen.
