Psalmus 29.
(8G)
Psalm 29.
29:1. Exaltábo te, Dómine, quóniam suscepísti me : *
nec delectásti inimícos meos super me.
1. I will extol thee, O Lord, for thou hast upheld me: * and hast not made my enemies to rejoice over me.
29:2. Dómine, Deus meus, clamávi ad te, *
et sanásti me.
2. O Lord my God, I have cried to thee, * and thou hast healed me.
29:3. Dómine, eduxísti ab inférno ánimam meam : *
salvásti me a descendéntibus in lacum.
3. Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: * thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit.
29:4. Psállite Dómino, sancti ejus : *
et confitémini memóriæ sanctitátis ejus.
4. Sing to the Lord, O ye his saints: * and give praise to the memory of his holiness.
29:5. Quóniam ira in indignatióne ejus : *
et vita in voluntáte ejus.
5. For wrath is in his indignation; * and life in his good will.
29:6. Ad vésperum demorábitur fletus : *
et ad matutínum lætítia.
6. In the evening weeping shall have place, * and in the morning gladness.
29:7. Ego autem dixi in abundántia mea : *
Non movébor in ætérnum.
7. And in my abundance I said: * I shall never be moved.
29:8. Dómine, in voluntáte tua, *
præstitísti decóri meo virtútem.
8. O Lord, in thy favour, * thou gavest strength to my beauty.
29:9. Avertísti fáciem tuam a me, *
et factus sum conturbátus.
9. Thou turnedst away thy face from me, * and I became troubled.
29:10. Ad te, Dómine, clamábo : *
et ad Deum meum deprecábor.
10. To thee, O Lord, will I cry: * and I will make supplication to my God.
29:11. Quæ utílitas in sánguine meo, *
dum descéndo in corruptiónem?
11. What profit is there in my blood, * whilst I go down to corruption?
29:12. Numquid confitébitur tibi pulvis, *
aut annuntiábit veritátem tuam?
12. Shall dust confess to thee, * or declare thy truth?
29:13. Audívit Dóminus, et misértus est mei : *
Dóminus factus est adjútor meus.
13. The Lord hath heard, and hath had mercy on me: * the Lord became my helper.
29:14. Convertísti planctum meum in gáudium mihi : *
conscidísti saccum meum, et circumdedísti me lætítia :
14. Thou hast turned for me my mourning into joy: * thou hast cut my sackcloth, and hast compassed me with gladness:
29:15. Ut cantet tibi glória mea, et non compúngar : *
Dómine, Deus meus, in ætérnum confitébor tibi.
15. To the end that my glory may sing to thee, and I may not regret: * O Lord my God, I will give praise to thee for ever.
