Psalmus 143.  I.
(6F)
Psalm 143.
143:1. Benedíctus Dóminus, Deus meus, qui docet manus meas ad prælium, *
et dígitos meos ad bellum.
1. Blessed be the Lord my God, who teacheth my hands to fight, * and my fingers to war.
143:2. Misericórdia mea, et refúgium meum : *
suscéptor meus, et libetor meus :
2. My mercy, and my refuge: * my support, and my deliverer:
143:3. Protéctor meus, et in ipso spevi : *
qui subdit pópulum meum sub me.
3. My protector, and I have hoped in him: * who subdueth my people under me.
143:4. Dómine, quid est homo, quia innotuísti ei? *
aut fílius hóminis, quia réputas eum?
4. Lord, what is man, that thou art made known to him? * or the son of man, that thou makest account of him?
143:5. Homo vanitáti símilis factus est : *
dies ejus sicut umbra præreunt.
5. Man is like to vanity: * his days pass away like a shadow.
143:6. Dómine, inclína cælos tuos, et descénde : *
tange montes, et fumibunt.
6. Lord, bow down thy heavens and descend: * touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
143:7. Fúlgura coruscatiónem, et dissipábis eos : *
emítte sagíttas tuas, et conturbis eos.
7. Send forth lightning, and thou shalt scatter them: * shoot out thy arrows, and thou shalt trouble them.
143:8. Emítte manum tuam de alto,
éripe me, et líbera me de aquis multis : *
de manu filiórum alierum.
8. Put forth thy hand from on high, take me out, and deliver me from many waters: * from the hand of strange children:
143:8. Quorum os locútum est vanitem : *
et déxtera eórum, déxtera iniquitis.
8. Whose mouth hath spoken vanity: * and their right hand is the right hand of iniquity.
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 sæcurum. Amen.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
