Psalmus 138.  II.
(6F1)
Psalm 138.
138:14. Confitébor tibi quia terribíliter magnificátus es :
mirabília ópera tua, *
et ánima mea cognóscit nimis.
14. I will praise thee, for thou art fearfully magnified: * wonderful are thy works, and my soul knoweth right well.
138:15. Non est occultátum os meum a te, quod fecísti in occúlto : *
et substántia mea in inferióribus terræ.
15. My bone is not hidden from thee, which thou hast made in secret: * and my substance in the lower parts of the earth.
138:16. Imperféctum meum vidérunt óculi tui,
et in libro tuo omnes scribéntur : *
dies formabúntur, et nemo in eis.
16. Thy eyes did see my imperfect being, and in thy book all shall be written: * days shall be formed, and no one in them
138:17. Mihi autem nimis honorificáti sunt amíci tui, Deus : *
nimis confortátus est principátus eórum.
17. But to me thy friends, O God, are made exceedingly honourable: * their principality is exceedingly strengthened.
138:18. Dinumerábo eos, et super arénam multiplicabúntur : *
exsurréxi, et adhuc sum tecum.
18. I will number them, and they shall be multiplied above the sand: * I rose up and am still with thee.
138:19. Si occíderis, Deus, peccares : *
viri sánguinum, declite a me :
19. If thou wilt kill the wicked, O God: * ye men of blood, depart from me:
138:20. Quia dícitis in cogitatióne : *
Accípient in vanitáte civites tuas.
20. Because you say in thought: * They shall receive thy cities in vain.
138:21. Nonne qui odérunt te, mine, óderam? *
et super inimícos tuos tabescébam?
21. Have I not hated them, O Lord, that hated thee: * and pined away because of thy enemies?
138:22. Perfécto ódio óderam illos : *
et inimíci facti sunt mihi.
22. I have hated them with a perfect hatred: * and they are become enemies to me.
138:23. Proba me, Deus, et scito cor meum : *
intérroga me, et cognósce sémitas meas.
23. Prove me, O God, and know my heart: * examine me, and know my paths.
138:24. Et vide, si via iniquitis in me est : *
et deduc me in via ætérna.
24. And see if there be in me the way of iniquity: * and lead me in the eternal way.
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 sæcurum. Amen.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
