Psalmus 5.
Psalm 5.
5:1. Verba mea áuribus pércipe, Dómine, * intéllige clamórem meum. 1. Give ear, O Lord, to my words * understand my cry.
5:2. Inténde voci oratiónis meæ, * Rex meus et Deus meus. 2. Hearken to the voice of my prayer, * O my King and my God.
5:3. Quóniam ad te orábo : * Dómine, mane exáudies vocem meam. 3. For to thee will I pray: * O Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear my voice.
5:4. Mane astábo tibi et vidébo : * quóniam non Deus volens iniquitátem tu es. 4. In the morning I will stand before thee, and will see: * because thou art not a God that willest iniquity.
5:5. Neque habitábit juxta te malígnus : * neque permanébunt injústi ante óculos tuos. 5. Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: * nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes.
5:6. Odísti omnes, qui operántur iniquitátem : * perdes omnes, qui loquúntur mendácium. 6. Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity: * thou wilt destroy all that speak a lie.
5:7. Virum sánguinum et dolósum abominábitur Dóminus : * ego autem in multitúdine misericórdiæ tuæ. 7. The bloody and the deceitful man the Lord will abhor. * But as for me in the multitude of thy mercy,
5:8. Introíbo in domum tuam : * adorábo ad templum sanctum tuum in timóre tuo. 8. I will come into thy house; * I will worship towards thy holy temple, in thy fear.
5:9. Dómine, deduc me in justítia tua : * propter inimícos meos dírige in conspéctu tuo viam meam. 9. Conduct me, O Lord, in thy justice: * because of my enemies, direct my way in thy sight.
5:10. Quóniam non est in ore eórum véritas : * cor eórum vanum est. 10. For there is no truth in their mouth: * their heart is vain.
5:11. Sepúlcrum patens est guttur eórum, linguis suis dolóse agébant, * júdica illos, Deus. 11. Their throat is an open sepulchre: they dealt deceitfully with their tongues: * judge them, O God.
5:12. Décidant a cogitatiónibus suis, secúndum multitúdinem impietátum eórum expélle eos, * quóniam irritavérunt te, Dómine. 12. Let them fall from their devices: according to the multitude of their wickednesses cast them out: * for they have provoked thee, O Lord.
5:13. Et læténtur omnes, qui sperant in te, * in ætérnum exsultábunt : et habitábis in eis. 13. But let all them be glad that hope in thee: * they shall rejoice for ever, and thou shalt dwell in them.
5:14. Et gloriabúntur in te omnes, qui díligunt nomen tuum, * quóniam tu benedíces justo. 14. And all they that love thy name shall glory in thee: * For thou wilt bless the just.
5:15. Dómine, ut scuto bonæ voluntátis tuæ * coronásti nos. 15. O Lord, thou hast crowned us, * as with a shield of thy good will.
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.
