Psalmus 69.
(8c)
Psalm 69.
69:1. Deus, in adjutórium meum inténde : *
Dómine, ad adjuvándum me festína.
1. O God, come to my assistance; * O Lord, make haste to help me.
69:2. Confundántur et revereántur, *
qui quærunt ánimam meam.
2. Let them be confounded and ashamed * that seek my soul:
69:3. Avertántur retrórsum, et erubéscant, *
qui volunt mihi mala.
3. Let them be turned backward, and blush for shame * that desire evils to me:
69:4. Avertántur statim erubescéntes, *
qui dicunt mihi : Euge, euge.
4. Let them be presently turned away blushing for shame * that say to me: 'T is well, 't is well.
69:5. Exsúltent et læténtur in te omnes qui quærunt te, *
et dicant semper : Magnificétur Dóminus : qui díligunt salutáre tuum.
5. Let all that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; * and let such as love thy salvation say always: The Lord be magnified.
69:6. Ego vero egénus, et pauper sum : *
Deus, ádjuva me.
6. But I am needy and poor; * O God, help me.
69:7. Adjútor meus, et liberátor meus es tu : *
Dómine, ne moréris.
7. Thou art my helper and my deliverer: * O Lord, make no delay.
