Psalmus 3.
Psalm 3.
3:1. Dómine, quid multiplicáti sunt qui tríbulant me? * multi insúrgunt advérsum me. 1. Why, O Lord, are they multiplied that afflict me? * many are they who rise up against me.
3:2. Multi dicunt ánimæ meæ : * Non est salus ipsi in Deo ejus. 2. Many say to my soul: * There is no salvation for him in his God.
3:3. Tu autem, Dómine, suscéptor meus es, * glória mea, et exáltans caput meum. 3. But thou, O Lord art my protector, * my glory, and the lifter up of my head.
3:4. Voce mea ad Dóminum clamávi : * et exaudívit me de monte sancto suo. 4. I have cried to the Lord with my voice: * and he hath heard me from his holy hill.
3:5. Ego dormívi, et soporátus sum : * et exsurréxi, quia Dóminus suscépit me. 5. I have slept and taken my rest: * and I have risen up, because the Lord hath protected me.
3:6. Non timébo míllia pópuli circumdántis me : * exsúrge, Dómine, salvum me fac, Deus meus. 6. I will not fear thousands of the people, surrounding me: * arise, O Lord; save me, O my God.
3:7. Quóniam tu percussísti omnes adversántes mihi sine causa : * dentes peccatórum contrivísti. 7. For thou hast struck all them who are my adversaries without cause: * thou hast broken the teeth of sinners.
