Psalmus 140.
(8c)
Psalm 140.
140:1. Dómine, clamávi ad te, exáudi me : *
inténde voci meæ, cum clamávero ad te.
1. I have cried to thee, O Lord, hear me: * hearken to my voice, when I cry to thee.
140:2. Dirigátur orátio mea sicut incénsum in conspéctu tuo : *
elevátio mánuum meárum sacrifícium vespernum.
2. Let my prayer be directed as incense in thy sight; * the lifting up of my hands, as evening sacrifice.
140:3. Pone, Dómine, custódiam ori meo : *
et óstium circumstántiæ lábiis meis.
3. Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth: * and a door round about my lips.
140:4. Non declínes cor meum in verba matiæ, *
ad excusándas excusatiónes in pectis.
4. Incline not my heart to evil words; * to make excuses in sins.
140:5. Cum homínibus operántibus iniquitem : *
et non communicábo cum eléctis eórum.
5. With men that work iniquity: * and I will not communicate with the choicest of them.
140:6. Corrípiet me justus in misericórdia, et increbit me : *
óleum autem peccatóris non impínguet caput meum.
6. The just man shall correct me in mercy, and shall reprove me: * but let not the oil of the sinner fatten my head.
140:7. Quóniam adhuc et orátio mea in beneplácitis eórum : *
absórpti sunt juncti petræ júdices eórum.
7. For my prayer also shall still be against the things with which they are well pleased: * their judges falling upon the rock have been swallowed up.
140:8. Audient verba mea quóniam potuérunt : *
sicut crassitúdo terræ erúpta est super terram.
8. They shall hear my words, for they have prevailed: * as when the thickness of the earth is broken up upon the ground.
140:9. Dissipáta sunt ossa nostra secus inférnum :
quia ad te, Dómine, Dómine, óculi mei : *
in te sperávi, non áuferas ánimam meam.
9. Our bones are scattered by the side of hell. * But to thee, O Lord, Lord, are my eyes: in thee have I put my trust, take not away my soul.
140:10. Custódi me a láqueo, quem statuérunt mihi : *
et a scándalis operántium iniquitem.
10. Keep me from the snare, which they have laid for me, * and from the stumbling blocks of them that work iniquity.
140:11. Cadent in retiáculo ejus peccares : *
singuláriter sum ego donec tránseam.
11. The wicked shall fall in his net: * I am alone until I pass.
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.
