Psalmus 113.
Psalm 113.
113:1. In éxitu Israël de Ægýpto, * domus Jacob de pópulo bárbaro : 1. When Israel went out of Egypt, * the house of Jacob from a barbarous people:
113:2. Facta est Judæa sanctificátio ejus, * Israël potéstas ejus. 2. Judea was made his sanctuary, * Israel his dominion.
113:3. Mare vidit, et fugit : * Jordánis convérsus est retrórsum. 3. The sea saw and fled: * Jordan was turned back.
113:4. Montes exsultavérunt ut aríetes, * et colles sicut agni óvium. 4. The mountains skipped like rams, * and the hills like the lambs of the flock.
113:5. Quid est tibi, mare, quod fugísti : * et tu, Jordánis, quia convérsus es retrórsum? 5. What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee: * and thou, O Jordan, that thou wast turned back?
113:6. Montes, exsultástis sicut aríetes, * et colles, sicut agni óvium. 6. Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, * and ye hills, like lambs of the flock?
113:7. A fácie Dómini mota est terra, * a fácie Dei Jacob. 7. At the presence of the Lord the earth was moved, * at the presence of the God of Jacob:
113:8. Qui convértit petram in stagna aquárum, * et rupem in fontes aquárum. 8. Who turned the rock into pools of water, * and the stony hill into fountains of waters.
113:9. Non nobis, Dómine, non nobis : * sed nómini tuo da glóriam. 9. Not to us, O Lord, not to us; * but to thy name give glory.
113:10. Super misericórdia tua, et veritáte tua : * nequándo dicant gentes : Ubi est Deus eórum? 10. For thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake: * lest the Gentiles should say: Where is their God?
113:11. Deus autem noster in cælo : * ómnia quæcúmque vóluit, fecit. 11. But our God is in heaven: * he hath done all things whatsoever he would.
113:12. Simulácra géntium argéntum, et aurum, * ópera mánuum hóminum. 12. The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, * the works of the hands of men.
113:13. Os habent, et non loquéntur : * óculos habent, et non vidébunt. 13. They have mouths and speak not: * they have eyes and see not.
113:14. Aures habent, et non áudient : * nares habent, et non odorábunt. 14. They have ears and hear not: * they have noses and smell not.
113:15. Manus habent, et non palpábunt : pedes habent, et non ambulábunt : * non clamábunt in gútture suo. 15. They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: * neither shall they cry out through their throat.
113:16. Símiles illis fiant qui fáciunt ea : * et omnes qui confídunt in eis. 16. Let them that make them become like unto them: * and all such as trust in them.
113:17. Domus Israël sperávit in Dómino : * adjútor eórum et protéctor eórum est, 17. The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord: * he is their helper and their protector.
113:18. Domus Aaron sperávit in Dómino : * adjútor eórum et protéctor eórum est, 18. The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord: * he is their helper and their protector.
113:19. Qui timent Dóminum, speravérunt in Dómino : * adjútor eórum et protéctor eórum est. 19. They that fear the Lord have hoped in the Lord: * he is their helper and their protector.
113:20. Dóminus memor fuit nostri : * et benedíxit nobis : 20. The Lord hath been mindful of us, * and hath blessed us.
113:21. Benedíxit dómui Israël : * benedíxit dómui Aaron. 21. He hath blessed the house of Israel: * he hath blessed the house of Aaron.
113:22. Benedíxit ómnibus, qui timent Dóminum, * pusíllis cum majóribus. 22. He hath blessed all that fear the Lord, * both little and great.
113:23. Adjíciat Dóminus super vos : * super vos, et super fílios vestros. 23. May the Lord add blessings upon you: * upon you, and upon your children.
113:24. Benedícti vos a Dómino, * qui fecit cælum, et terram. 24. Blessed be you of the Lord, * who made heaven and earth.
113:25. Cælum cæli Dómino : * terram autem dedit fíliis hóminum. 25. The heaven of heaven is the Lord's: * but the earth he has given to the children of men.
113:26. Non mórtui laudábunt te, Dómine : * neque omnes, qui descéndunt in inférnum. 26. The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord: * nor any of them that go down to hell.
113:27. Sed nos qui vívimus, benedícimus Dómino, * ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum. 27. But we that live bless the Lord: * from this time now and for ever.
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.
