Psalmus 113.
Psalm 113.
113:1. In éxitu Israël de Ægýpto, *
domus Jacob de pópulo bárbaro :
1. When Israel went out of Egypt, * the house of Jacob from a barbarous people:
113:2. Facta est Judæa sanctificátio ejus, *
Israël potéstas ejus.
2. Judea was made his sanctuary, * Israel his dominion.
113:3. Mare vidit, et fugit : *
Jordánis convérsus est retrórsum.
3. The sea saw and fled: * Jordan was turned back.
113:4. Montes exsultavérunt ut aríetes, *
et colles sicut agni óvium.
4. The mountains skipped like rams, * and the hills like the lambs of the flock.
113:5. Quid est tibi, mare, quod fugísti : *
et tu, Jordánis, quia convérsus es retrórsum?
5. What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee: * and thou, O Jordan, that thou wast turned back?
113:6. Montes, exsultástis sicut aríetes, *
et colles, sicut agni óvium.
6. Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, * and ye hills, like lambs of the flock?
113:7. A fácie Dómini mota est terra, *
a fácie Dei Jacob.
7. At the presence of the Lord the earth was moved, * at the presence of the God of Jacob:
113:8. Qui convértit petram in stagna aquárum, *
et rupem in fontes aquárum.
8. Who turned the rock into pools of water, * and the stony hill into fountains of waters.
113:9. Non nobis, Dómine, non nobis : *
sed nómini tuo da glóriam.
9. Not to us, O Lord, not to us; * but to thy name give glory.
113:10. Super misericórdia tua, et veritáte tua : *
nequándo dicant gentes : Ubi est Deus eórum?
10. For thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake: * lest the Gentiles should say: Where is their God?
113:11. Deus autem noster in cælo : *
ómnia quæcúmque vóluit, fecit.
11. But our God is in heaven: * he hath done all things whatsoever he would.
113:12. Simulácra géntium argéntum, et aurum, *
ópera mánuum hóminum.
12. The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, * the works of the hands of men.
113:13. Os habent, et non loquéntur : *
óculos habent, et non vidébunt.
13. They have mouths and speak not: * they have eyes and see not.
113:14. Aures habent, et non áudient : *
nares habent, et non odorábunt.
14. They have ears and hear not: * they have noses and smell not.
113:15. Manus habent, et non palpábunt : pedes habent, et non ambulábunt : *
non clamábunt in gútture suo.
15. They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: * neither shall they cry out through their throat.
113:16. Símiles illis fiant qui fáciunt ea : *
et omnes qui confídunt in eis.
16. Let them that make them become like unto them: * and all such as trust in them.
113:17. Domus Israël sperávit in Dómino : *
adjútor eórum et protéctor eórum est,
17. The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord: * he is their helper and their protector.
113:18. Domus Aaron sperávit in Dómino : *
adjútor eórum et protéctor eórum est,
18. The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord: * he is their helper and their protector.
113:19. Qui timent Dóminum, speravérunt in Dómino : *
adjútor eórum et protéctor eórum est.
19. They that fear the Lord have hoped in the Lord: * he is their helper and their protector.
113:20. Dóminus memor fuit nostri : *
et benedíxit nobis :
20. The Lord hath been mindful of us, * and hath blessed us.
113:21. Benedíxit dómui Israël : *
benedíxit dómui Aaron.
21. He hath blessed the house of Israel: * he hath blessed the house of Aaron.
113:22. Benedíxit ómnibus, qui timent Dóminum, *
pusíllis cum majóribus.
22. He hath blessed all that fear the Lord, * both little and great.
113:23. Adjíciat Dóminus super vos : *
super vos, et super fílios vestros.
23. May the Lord add blessings upon you: * upon you, and upon your children.
113:24. Benedícti vos a Dómino, *
qui fecit cælum, et terram.
24. Blessed be you of the Lord, * who made heaven and earth.
113:25. Cælum cæli Dómino : *
terram autem dedit fíliis hóminum.
25. The heaven of heaven is the Lord's: * but the earth he has given to the children of men.
113:26. Non mórtui laudábunt te, Dómine : *
neque omnes, qui descéndunt in inférnum.
26. The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord: * nor any of them that go down to hell.
113:27. Sed nos qui vívimus, benedícimus Dómino, *
ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
27. But we that live bless the Lord: * from this time now and for ever.
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.
