Psalm 106.
106:31. Confiteántur Dómino misericórdiæ ejus : *
et mirabília ejus fíliis hóminum.
31. Let the mercies of the Lord give glory to him, * and his wonderful works to the children of men.
106:32. Et exáltent eum in ecclésia plebis : *
et in cáthedra seniórum laudent eum.
32. And let them exalt him in the church of the people: * and praise him in the chair of the ancients.
106:33. Pósuit flúmina in desértum : *
et éxitus aquárum in sitim.
33. He hath turned rivers into a wilderness: * and the sources of water into dry ground:
106:34. Terram fructíferam in salsúginem : *
a malítia inhabitántium in ea.
34. A fruitful land into barrenness, * for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
106:35. Pósuit desértum in stagna aquárum : *
et terram sine aqua in éxitus aquárum.
35. He hath turned a wilderness into pools of water, * and a dry land into water springs.
106:36. Et collocávit illic esuriéntes : *
et constituérunt civitátem habitatiónis.
36. And hath placed there the hungry; * and they made a city for their habitation.

et fecérunt fructum nativitátis.
37. And they sowed fields, and planted vineyards: * and they yielded fruit of birth.
106:38. Et benedíxit eis, et multiplicáti sunt nimis : *
et juménta eórum non minorávit.
38. And he blessed them, and they were multiplied exceedingly: * and their cattle he suffered not to decrease.
106:39. Et pauci facti sunt : *
et vexáti sunt a tribulatióne malórum, et dolóre.
39. Then they were brought to be few: * and they were afflicted through the trouble of evils and sorrow.
106:40. Effúsa est contémptio super príncipes : *
et erráre fecit eos in ínvio, et non in via.
40. Contempt was poured forth upon their princes: *and he caused them to wander where there was no passing, and out of the way.
106:41. Et adjúvit páuperem de inópia : *
et pósuit sicut oves famílias.
41. And he helped the poor out of poverty: * and made him families like a flock of sheep.
106:42. Vidébunt recti, et lætabúntur : *
et omnis iníquitas oppilábit os suum.
42. The just shall see, and shall rejoice, * and all iniquity shall stop their mouth.
106:43. Quis sápiens et custódiet hæc? *
et intélliget misericórdias Dómini.
43. Who is wise, and will keep these things: * and will understand the mercies of the Lord?

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.
