Psalmus 35.
(8G)
Psalm 35.
35:1. Dixit injústus ut delínquat in semetípso : *
non est timor Dei ante óculos ejus.
1. The unjust hath said within himself, that he would sin: * there is no fear of God before his eyes.
35:2. Quóniam dolóse egit in conspéctu ejus : *
ut inveniátur iníquitas ejus ad ódium.
2. For in his sight he hath done deceitfully, * that his iniquity may be found unto hatred.
35:3. Verba oris ejus iníquitas, et dolus : *
nóluit intellígere ut bene ágeret.
3. The words of his mouth are iniquity and guile: * he would not understand that he might do well.
35:4. Iniquitátem meditátus est in cubíli suo : *
ástitit omni viæ non bonæ, malítiam autem non odívit.
4. He hath devised iniquity on his bed, * he hath set himself on every way that is not good: but evil he hath not hated.
35:5. Dómine, in cælo misericórdia tua : *
et véritas tua usque ad nubes.
5. O Lord, thy mercy is in heaven, * and thy truth reacheth even to the clouds.
35:6. Justítia tua sicut montes Dei : *
judícia tua abýssus multa.
6. Thy justice is as the mountains of God, * thy judgments are a great deep.
35:7. Hómines, et juménta salvábis, Dómine : *
quemádmodum multiplicásti misericórdiam tuam, Deus.
7. Men and beasts thou wilt preserve, O Lord: * O how hast thou multiplied thy mercy, O God!
35:8. Fílii autem hóminum, *
in tégmine alárum tuárum sperábunt.
8. But the children of men * shall put their trust under the covert of thy wings.
35:9. Inebriabúntur ab ubertáte domus tuæ : *
et torrénte voluptátis tuæ potábis eos.
9. They shall be inebriated with the plenty of thy house; * and thou shalt make them drink of the torrent of thy pleasure.
35:10. Quóniam apud te est fons vitæ : *
et in lúmine tuo vidébimus lumen.
10. For with thee is the fountain of life; * and in thy light we shall see light.
35:11. Præténde misericórdiam tuam sciéntibus te, *
et justítiam tuam his, qui recto sunt corde.
11. Extend thy mercy to them that know thee, * and thy justice to them that are right in heart.
35:12. Non véniat mihi pes supérbiæ : *
et manus peccatóris non móveat me.
12. Let not the foot of pride come to me, * and let not the hand of the sinner move me.
35:13. Ibi cecidérunt qui operántur iniquitátem : *
expúlsi sunt, nec potuérunt stare.
13. There the workers of iniquity are fallen, * they are cast out, and could not stand.
