Psalmus 42.
Psalm 42.
42:1. Júdica me, Deus, et discérne causam meam de gente non sancta, * ab hómine iníquo, et dolóso érue me. 1. Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy: * deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man.
42:2. Quia tu es, Deus, fortitúdo mea :
quare me repulísti? * et quare tristis incédo, dum afflígit me inimícus?
2. For thou art God my strength: * why hast thou cast me off? and why do I go sorrowful whilst the enemy afflicteth me?
42:3. Emítte lucem tuam et veritátem tuam :
ipsa me deduxérunt, et adduxérunt in montem sanctum tuum, * et in tabernácula tua.
3. Send forth thy light and thy truth: * they have conducted me, and brought me unto thy holy hill, and into thy tabernacles.
42:4. Et introíbo ad altáre Dei : * ad Deum, qui lætíficat juventútem meam. 4. And I will go in to the altar of God: * to God who giveth joy to my youth.
42:5. Confitébor tibi in cíthara, Deus, Deus meus : * quare tristis es, ánima mea? et quare contúrbas me? 5. To thee, O God my God, I will give praise upon the harp: * why art thou sad, O my soul? and why dost thou disquiet me?
42:6. Spera in Deo, quóniam adhuc confitébor illi : * salutáre vultus mei, et Deus meus. 6. Hope in God, for I will still give praise to him: * the salvation of my countenance, and my God.
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.
