Tikkun HaKlali - Wikisource
I am connecting myself in saying the ten chapters of Tehilim to all the true Tzaddikim that are in our generation, and to all the true Tzaddikim resting in dust; especially to our Holy Rabbi, Tzadik Yesod Olam, The “Flowing Brook, a Fountain of Wisdom” (Prov. 18:4) our Rabbi Nachman ben Feiga who revealed this Tikkun. May his merit protect us and all Yisrael, Amen.
1. A Michtam by David. Guard me, El (Almighty God), for I have taken refuge in You. 2. [O my soul] you should say to Adonai, "You are my Master; [in bestowing Your] benefits towards me, there is no duty on Your part [on account of my own merit]. 3. But on account of the holy ones who are [buried] in the earth, and of the mighty ones [in faith] in whom is all my delight[/all my needs are fulfilled]. 4. The sorrows of those who hasten after another [deity] will increase; I will not pour their libations of blood, nor will I take their names upon my lips. 5. Adonai is the share given for my portion [i.e. to believe in Him] and [the share] for my cup is You, Who guide me in my lot. 6. Portions have fallen to me in the most pleasant places [i.e. faith in You]; even a beautiful inheritance [ibid.] is upon me." 7. I will bless Adonai, Who counseled me; even at night my conscience instructs me. 8. I have placed Adonai before me constantly; because [He is] at my right hand, I will not falter. 9. Therefore, my heart rejoiced, and my soul was glad; even my flesh shall dwell in safety. 10. For You shall not forsake my soul to the grave; You shall not allow Your pious one to see destruction. 11. You will make known to me the path of life: satiety of joys in seeing Your face, [and being satisfied] with the delights that are at Your right hand forevermore.
1. By David, a Maskil. Fortunate is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2. Fortunate is the man to whom Adonai ascribes no iniquity and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3. When I was silent, my bones decayed with my moaning all day long. 4. For [both] day and night Your hand was heavily upon me; my freshness was transformed as in the droughts of summer, Selah. 5. My sin I make known to You, and my iniquity I do not conceal; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to Adonai," and You have [always] forgiven my iniquitous sin, Selah. 6. For this [the Divine Presence] let every pious man judge himself: [to draw close] to You before [misfortune] befalls, only before the flooding of might waters [of afflictions]; such a person they will not reach. 7. You are a hiding-place for me, from distress You guard me; with songs of deliverance You encompass me, Selah. 8. "I will enlighten you and instruct you in the way which you shall go; I will wink My eye to you." 9. Be not like a horse or like a mule that does not discern, which must be muzzled with its adornment of bit and rein, that it should not come near you. 10. Many are the pains of the wicked, but as for him who trusts in Adonai — kindness will encompass him. 11. Rejoice in Adonai and exult, O righteous ones, and cause all those of upright hearts to sing praises!
1. For the Leader, a song by David. 2. Fortunate is he who considers the sick; on a day of calamity Adonai will rescue him. 3. Adonai will preserve him and keep him alive, and he will be called fortunate in all the land, and You will not deliver him into the desire of his enemies. 4. Adonai will support him on his sickbed; when You have transformed his entire restfulness in his illness. 5. I said, "Adonai, be gracious to me; heal my soul because I have sinned against You." 6. My enemies speak evil of me; "When will he die and his name be lost?" 7. And if he comes to see [me], he speaks falsely; his heart gathers iniquity to itself; when he goes outside, he speaks of it. 8. All my enemies whisper together about me; against me do they devise my hurt. 9. "An evil thing shall be poured into him, and once he lies down, he will no longer rise." 10. Even my ally, in whom I trusted, who eats my bread, developed an ambush for me. 11. But You, Adonai, be gracious to me and raise me up, so that I may repay them. 12. By this I shall know that You delight in me, when my enemy does not shout joyfully over me. 13. And as for me, because of my integrity You shall support me, and set me up before Your face forever. 14. Blessed be Adonai, Elohei/(God of) Yisroel, from [one end of] the world, to the [other end of] the world. Amen and amen!
1. For the Leader, a Maskil by the sons of Korach. 2. As a she-deer cries longingly for rivulets of water, so does my soul cry longingly to You, Elohim (God, Almighty Master of all forces). 3. My soul thirsts for Elohim, for the living God: “When will I come and appear before Elohim [in the Holy Temple]?” 4. My tears were my bread day and night when they say to me all day long, "Where is your God?" 5. These things I will remember, and I will pour out my soul [because of the pain which is] upon me: How I passed on in covered [wagons], pacing slowly up to the House of Elohim with a joyful shouting and thanksgiving, a celebrating multitude. 6. Why are you downcast, my soul, and why do you wail over me? Hope to Elohim, for I will yet thank Him for the salvations of His presence. 7. My God, the soul that is upon me is downcast; therefore, I will remember You from the land of Yardan and the peaks of Chermon, from the young mountain. 8. One deep [trouble] calls to [another] deep [trouble]; [I am ready] to hear the sound of Your water channels [of afflictions]; all your breakers and waves are gone over me. 9. By day, Adonai commands His kindness, and at night, His song is with me, a prayer to the God [who guards] my life. 10. I will say to God, my Rock, "Why have You forgotten me? Why should I walk in gloom under the oppression of the enemy?" 11. With murder in my bones, my oppressors have reproached me by saying to me all day long, "Where is your God?" 12. Why are you downcast, my soul, and why do you moan over me? Hope to Elohim, for I will yet thank Him for the salvations of my countenance and my God.
