Psalmus 138.  I.
(3g2)
Psalm 138.
138:1. mine, probásti me, et cognosti me : *
tu cognovísti sessiónem meam, et resurrectiónem meam.
1. Lord, thou hast proved me, and known me: * thou hast known my sitting down, and my rising up.
138:2. Intellexísti cogitatiónes meas de longe : *
sémitam meam, et funículum meum investisti.
2. Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off: * my path and my life thou hast searched out.
138:3. Et omnes vias meas prævisti : *
quia non est sermo in lingua mea.
3. And thou hast foreseen all my ways: * for there is no speech on my tongue.
138:4. Ecce, Dómine, tu cognovísti ómnia novíssima, et anqua : *
tu formásti me, et posuísti super me manum tuam.
4. Behold, O Lord, thou hast known all things, the last and those of old: * thou hast formed me, and hast laid thy hand upon me.
138:5. Mirábilis facta est sciéntia tua ex me : *
confortáta est, et non pótero ad eam.
5. Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me: * it is high, and I cannot reach to it.
138:6. Quo ibo a spíritu tuo? *
et quo a fácie tua giam?
6. Whither shall I go from thy spirit? * or whither shall I flee from thy face?
138:7. Si ascéndero in lum, tu illic es : *
si descéndero in inférnum, ades.
7. If I ascend into heaven, thou art there: * if I descend into hell, thou art present.
138:8. Si súmpsero pennas meas diculo, *
et habitávero in extrémis maris :
8. If I take my wings early in the morning, * and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea:
138:9. Étenim illuc manus tua decet me : *
et tenébit me déxtera tua.
9. Even there also shall thy hand lead me: * and thy right hand shall hold me.
138:10. Et dixi : Fórsitan ténebræ conculbunt me : *
et nox illuminátio mea in deciis meis.
10. And I said: Perhaps darkness shall cover me: * and night shall be my light in my pleasures.
138:11. Quia ténebræ non obscurabúntur a te,
et nox sicut dies illumibitur : *
sicut ténebræ ejus, ita et lumen ejus.
11. But darkness shall not be dark to thee, and night shall be light as the day: * the darkness thereof, and the light thereof are alike to thee.
138:12. Quia tu possedísti renes meos : *
suscepísti me de útero matris meæ.
12. For thou hast possessed my reins: * thou hast protected me from my mother's womb.
V. Glória Patri, et lio, *
et Spitui 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.
