Psalmus 37.
(8G)
Psalm 37.
37:1. Dómine, ne in furóre tuo árguas me, *
neque in ira tua corrípias me.
1. Rebuke me not, O Lord, in thy indignation; * nor chastise me in thy wrath.
37:2. Quóniam sagíttæ tuæ infíxæ sunt mihi : *
et confirmásti super me manum tuam.
2. For thy arrows are fastened in me: * and thy hand hath been strong upon me.
37:3. Non est sánitas in carne mea a fácie iræ tuæ : *
non est pax óssibus meis a fácie peccatórum meórum.
3. There is no health in my flesh, because of thy wrath: * there is no peace for my bones, because of my sins.
37:4. Quóniam iniquitátes meæ supergréssæ sunt caput meum : *
et sicut onus grave gravátæ sunt super me.
4. For my iniquities are gone over my head: * and as a heavy burden are become heavy upon me.
37:5. Putruérunt et corrúptæ sunt cicatríces meæ, *
a fácie insipiéntiæ meæ.
5. My sores are putrified and corrupted, * because of my foolishness.
37:6. Miser factus sum, et curvátus sum usque in finem : *
tota die contristátus ingrediébar.
6. I am become miserable, and am bowed down even to the end: * I walked sorrowful all the day long.
37:7. Quóniam lumbi mei impléti sunt illusiónibus : *
et non est sánitas in carne mea.
7. For my loins are filled with illusions; * and there is no health in my flesh.
37:8. Afflíctus sum, et humiliátus sum nimis : *
rugiébam a gémitu cordis mei.
8. I am afflicted and humbled exceedingly: * I roared with the groaning of my heart.
37:9. Dómine, ante te omne desidérium meum : *
et gémitus meus a te non est abscónditus.
9. Lord, all my desire is before thee, * and my groaning is not hidden from thee.
37:10. Cor meum conturbátum est, derelíquit me virtus mea : *
et lumen oculórum meórum, et ipsum non est mecum.
10. My heart is troubled, my strength hath left me, * and the light of my eyes itself is not with me.
37:12. Amíci mei, et próximi mei *
advérsum me appropinquavérunt, et stetérunt.
12. My friends and my neighbours * have drawn near, and stood against me.
37:13. Et qui juxta me erant, de longe stetérunt : *
et vim faciébant qui quærébant ánimam meam.
13. And they that were near me stood afar off: * and they that sought my soul used violence.
37:14. Et qui inquirébant mala mihi, locúti sunt vanitátes : *
et dolos tota die meditabántur.
14. And they that sought evils to me spoke vain things, * and studied deceits all the day long.
37:15. Ego autem tamquam surdus non audiébam : *
et sicut mutus non apériens os suum.
15. But I, as a deaf man, heard not: * and as a dumb man not opening his mouth.
37:16. Et factus sum sicut homo non áudiens : *
et non habens in ore suo redargutiónes.
16. And I became as a man that heareth not: * and that hath no reproofs in his mouth.
37:17. Quóniam in te, Dómine, sperávi : *
tu exáudies me, Dómine, Deus meus.
17. For in thee, O Lord, have I hoped: * thou wilt hear me, O Lord my God.
37:18. Quia dixi : Nequándo supergáudeant mihi inimíci mei : *
et dum commovéntur pedes mei, super me magna locúti sunt.
18. For I said: Lest at any time my enemies rejoice over me: * and whilst my feet are moved, they speak great things against me.
37:19. Quóniam ego in flagélla parátus sum : *
et dolor meus in conspéctu meo semper.
19. For I am ready for scourges: * and my sorrow is continually before me.
37:20. Quóniam iniquitátem meam annuntiábo : *
et cogitábo pro peccáto meo.
20. For I will declare my iniquity: * and I will think for my sin.
37:21. Inimíci autem mei vivunt, et confirmáti sunt super me : *
et multiplicáti sunt qui odérunt me iníque.
21. But my enemies live, and are stronger than I: * and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
37:22. Qui retríbuunt mala pro bonis, detrahébant mihi : *
quóniam sequébar bonitátem.
22. They that render evil for good, have detracted me, * because I followed goodness.
37:23. Ne derelínquas me, Dómine, Deus meus : *
ne discésseris a me.
23. Forsake me not, O Lord my God: * do not thou depart from me.
37:23. Inténde in adjutórium meum, *
Dómine, Deus, salútis meæ.
23. Attend unto my help, * O Lord, the God of my salvation.
