Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 41 Bible commentary...
God's care for his people. (1-4) The treachery of David's enemies. (5-13)
1-4 The people of God are not free from poverty, sickness, or outward affliction, but the Lord will consider their case, and send due supplies. From his Lord's example the believer learns to consider his poor and afflicted brethren. This branch of godliness is usually recompensed with temporal blessings. But nothing is so distressing to the contrite believer, as a fear or sense of the Divine displeasure, or of sin in his heart. Sin is the sickness of the soul; pardoning mercy heals it, renewing grace heals it, and for this spiritual healing we should be more earnest than for bodily health.
5-13 We complain, and justly, of the want of sincerity, and that there is scarcely any true friendship to be found among men; but the former days were no better. One particularly, in whom David had reposed great confidence, took part with his enemies. And let us not think it strange, if we receive evil from those we suppose to be friends. Have not we ourselves thus broken our words toward God? We eat of his bread daily, yet lift up the heel against him. But though we may not take pleasure in the fall of our enemies, we may take pleasure in the making vain their designs. When we can discern the Lord's favour in any mercy, personal or public, that doubles it. If the grace of God did not take constant care of us, we should not be upheld. But let us, while on earth, give heartfelt assent to those praises which the redeemed on earth and in heaven render to their God and Saviour.

Timothy Wayne George's Psalms Chapter 41 comment about verse 9 on 3/13/2013, 8:36am...
Yea mine own familiar friend, whom I trusted, who did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. The fulfilment of this verse happened at the Last Supper, the Lord Jesus said to all the disciples, that one of you will betray me. They asked who? Jesus replied the one who sops bread with me. The disciples did not know it was Judas Iscariot, until he betrayed the Lord with a kiss, in the Garden of Gethsemane. The Lord wants all of us to examine our hearts, to see that we truly love Him with all our heart, mind, and soul. We do this by caring for the needs of the poor, and the Lord remembers us, in our time of trouble, and delivers us.

Good morning and God bless all of us. Giving honor to God who is the head of my life. I want to share something with you. Well back in 2010 I had surgery on my back I had a tumor. Well in 2011 the tumor returned and I went to see all of these Doctors in the cancer department. Well the doctors told me that today we're going to give you a treatment plan we'll go from there. The treatment plan consisted of chemo radiation and surgery. Well when I returned to an appointment I was supposed to be set up for surgery but when they did the MRI, the doctor came in and said Mrs Johnson I don't know what happened but the tumor stopped growing in its tracks. He said I never seen this happen. He said 3 months ago it was very aggressive and growing. I told my doctor I know what happened it was JESUS he has healed my body and he is well alive he lives AMEN, HALLEJAH! My doctor said you're right and because it has stopped growing we're going to do surgery, we will keep watch on it. I said praise the Lord thank you Jesus all praises belong to you lord I love you for paying the price for us. Psalms 41 is alive today and forever. Everything that the doctor said they were going to do they didnít do because My Father and his son and the Holy Spirit is in control of everything. We can nothing without him. Glory Be to God!

This chapter of Psalms is one of the best. In verse 11, it talks about the favor of God. As a woman of God, I thank him for his favor. The favor of God is not always fair, but the Lord favors those who walk upright before him. He favors the meek and the humble.... because they have the right spirit to receive his favor.

If God was betrayed by those people who did eat of His bread and so are we... But He is not unjust. Let Him take care of everything. For sure... He will protect you. FAITH MOVETH MOUNTAINS!
