Psalmus 74.
(7c)
Psalm 74.
74:1. Confitébimur tibi, Deus : *
confitébimur, et invocábimus nomen tuum.
1. We will praise thee, O God: * we will praise, and we will call upon thy name.
74:2. Narrábimus mirabília tua : *
cum accépero tempus, ego justítias judicábo.
2. We will relate thy wondrous works: * when I shall take a time, I will judge justices.
74:3. Liquefácta est terra, et omnes qui hábitant in ea : *
ego confirmávi colúmnas ejus.
3. The earth is melted, and all that dwell therein: * I have established the pillars thereof.
74:4. Dixi iníquis : Nolíte iníque ágere : *
et delinquéntibus : Nolíte exaltáre cornu :
4. I said to the wicked: Do not act wickedly: * and to the sinners: Lift not up the horn.
74:5. Nolíte extóllere in altum cornu vestrum : *
nolíte loqui advérsus Deum iniquitátem.
5. Lift not up your horn on high: * speak not iniquity against God.
74:6. Quia neque ab Oriénte, neque ab Occidénte, neque a desértis móntibus : *
quóniam Deus judex est.
6. For neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert hills: * for God is the judge.
74:7. Hunc humíliat, et hunc exáltat : *
quia calix in manu Dómini vini meri plenus misto.
7. One he putteth down, and another he lifteth up: * for in the hand of the Lord there is a cup of strong wine full of mixture.
74:8. Et inclinávit ex hoc in hoc : verúmtamen fæx ejus non est exinaníta : *
bibent omnes peccatóres terræ.
8. And he hath poured it out from this to that: but the dregs thereof are not emptied: * all the sinners of the earth shall drink.
74:9. Ego autem annuntiábo in sǽculum : *
cantábo Deo Jacob.
9. But I will declare for ever: * I will sing to the God of Jacob.
74:10. Et ómnia córnua peccatórum confríngam : *
et exaltabúntur córnua justi.
10. And I will break all the horns of sinners: * but the horns of the just shall be exalted.
