Psalmus 106.  III.
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.
106:37. Et seminavérunt agros, et plantavérunt víneas : * 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?
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * 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.
