Psalmus 9.  III.
Psalm 9.
9:22. Ut quid, Dómine, recessísti longe, *
déspicis in opportunitátibus, in tribulatióne?
22. Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off? * why dost thou slight us in our wants, in the time of trouble?
9:23. Dum supérbit ímpius, incénditur pauper : *
comprehendúntur in consíliis quibus cógitant.
23. Whilst the wicked man is proud, the poor is set on fire: * they are caught in the counsels which they devise.
9:24. Quóniam laudátur peccátor in desidériis ánimæ suæ : *
et iníquus benedícitur.
24. For the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul: * and the unjust man is blessed.
9:25. Exacerbávit Dóminum peccátor, *
secúndum multitúdinem iræ suæ non quæret.
25. The sinner hath provoked the Lord, * according to the multitude of his wrath he will not seek him.
9:26. Non est Deus in conspéctu ejus : *
inquinátæ sunt viæ illíus in omni témpore.
26. God is not before his eyes: * his ways are filthy at all times.
9:27. Auferúntur judícia tua a fácie ejus : *
ómnium inimicórum suórum dominábitur.
27. Thy judgments are removed from his sight: * he shall rule over all his enemies.
9:28. Dixit enim in corde suo : *
Non movébor a generatióne in generatiónem sine malo.
28. For he hath said in his heart: * I shall not be moved from generation to generation, and shall be without evil.
9:29. Cujus maledictióne os plenum est, et amaritúdine, et dolo : *
sub lingua ejus labor et dolor.
29. His mouth is full of cursing, and of bitterness, and of deceit: * under his tongue are labour and sorrow.
9:30. Sedet in insídiis cum divítibus in occúltis : *
ut interfíciat innocéntem.
30. He sitteth in ambush with the rich, in private places, * that he may kill the innocent.
9:31. Óculi ejus in páuperem respíciunt : *
insidiátur in abscóndito, quasi leo in spelúnca sua.
31. His eyes are upon the poor man: * he lieth in wait, in secret, like a lion in his den.
9:32. Insidiátur ut rápiat páuperem : *
rápere páuperem, dum áttrahit eum.
32. He lieth in ambush, that he may catch the poor man: * so catch the poor, whilst he draweth him to him.
9:32. In láqueo suo humiliábit eum : *
inclinábit se, et cadet, cum dominátus fúerit páuperum.
32. In his net he will bring him down, * he will crouch and fall, when he shall have power over the poor.
9:32. Dixit enim in corde suo : Oblítus est Deus, *
avértit fáciem suam ne vídeat in finem.
32. For he hath said in his heart: God hath forgotten, * he hath turned away his face, not to see to the end.
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.
