Psalmus 128.
(8G)
Psalm 128.
128:1. Sæpe expugnavérunt me a juventúte mea, *
dicat nunc Israël.
1. Often have they fought against me from my youth, * let Israel now say.
128:2. Sæpe expugnavérunt me a juventúte mea : *
étenim non potuérunt mihi.
2. Often have they fought against me from my youth: * but they could not prevail over me.
128:3. Supra dorsum meum fabricavérunt peccares : *
prolongavérunt iniquitátem suam.
3. The wicked have wrought upon my back: * they have lengthened their iniquity.
128:4. Dóminus justus concídit cervíces peccarum : *
confundántur et convertántur retrórsum omnes, qui odérunt Sion.
4. The Lord who is just will cut the necks of sinners: * let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Sion.
128:5. Fiant sicut fœnum tectórum : *
quod priúsquam evellátur, exáruit :
5. Let them be as grass upon the tops of houses: * which withereth before it be plucked up:
128:6. De quo non implévit manum suam qui metit, *
et sinum suum qui manípulos cólligit.
6. Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand: * nor he that gathereth sheaves his bosom.
128:7. Et non dixérunt qui præteríbant : Benedíctio Dómini super vos : *
benedíximus vobis in nómine mini.
7. And they that passed by have not said: The blessing of the Lord be upon you: * we have blessed you in the name of the Lord.
V. Glória Patri, et lio, *
et Spirítui Sancto.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, *
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
