1 εἰς τὸ τέλος τῷ Ιδιθουν ᾠδὴ τῷ Δαυιδ 1 (To the choir-master, Idithun. A psalm. Of David.) 1 In finem, ipsi Idithun. Canticum David.
2 εἶπα φυλάξω τὰς ὁδούς μου τοῦ μὴ ἁμαρτάνειν ἐν γλώσσῃ μου ἐθέμην τῷ στόματί μου φυλακὴν ἐν τῷ συστῆναι τὸν ἁμαρτωλὸν ἐναντίον μου 3 ἐκωφώθην καὶ ἐταπεινώθην καὶ ἐσίγησα ἐξ ἀγαθῶν καὶ τὸ ἄλγημά μου ἀνεκαινίσθη 4 ἐθερμάνθη ἡ καρδία μου ἐντός μου καὶ ἐν τῇ μελέτῃ μου ἐκκαυθήσεται πῦρ ἐλάλησα ἐν γλώσσῃ μου 5 γνώρισόν μοι κύριε τὸ πέρας μου καὶ τὸν ἀριθμὸν τῶν ἡμερῶν μου τίς ἐστιν ἵνα γνῶ τί ὑστερῶ ἐγώ 6 ἰδοὺ παλαιστὰς ἔθου τὰς ἡμέρας μου καὶ ἡ ὑπόστασίς μου ὡσεὶ οὐθὲν ἐνώπιόν σου πλὴν τὰ σύμπαντα ματαιότης πᾶς ἄνθρωπος ζῶν διάψαλμα 7 μέντοιγε ἐν εἰκόνι διαπορεύεται ἄνθρωπος πλὴν μάτην ταράσσονται θησαυρίζει καὶ οὐ γινώσκει τίνι συνάξει αὐτά 8 καὶ νῦν τίς ἡ ὑπομονή μου οὐχὶ ὁ κύριος καὶ ἡ ὑπόστασίς μου παρὰ σοῦ ἐστιν 9 ἀπὸ πασῶν τῶν ἀνομιῶν μου ῥῦσαί με ὄνειδος ἄφρονι ἔδωκάς με 10 ἐκωφώθην καὶ οὐκ ἤνοιξα τὸ στόμα μου ὅτι σὺ εἶ ὁ ποιήσας με 11 ἀπόστησον ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ τὰς μάστιγάς σου ἀπὸ τῆς ἰσχύος τῆς χειρός σου ἐγὼ ἐξέλιπον 12 ἐν ἐλεγμοῖς ὑπὲρ ἀνομίας ἐπαίδευσας ἄνθρωπον καὶ ἐξέτηξας ὡς ἀράχνην τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ πλὴν μάτην ταράσσεται πᾶς ἄνθρωπος διάψαλμα 13 εἰσάκουσον τῆς προσευχῆς μου κύριε καὶ τῆς δεήσεώς μου ἐνώτισαι τῶν δακρύων μου μὴ παρασιωπήσῃς ὅτι πάροικος ἐγώ εἰμι παρὰ σοὶ καὶ παρεπίδημος καθὼς πάντες οἱ πατέρες μου 14 ἄνες μοι ἵνα ἀναψύξω πρὸ τοῦ με ἀπελθεῖν καὶ οὐκέτι μὴ ὑπάρξω 2 It was my resolve to live watchfully, and never use my tongue amiss; still, while I was in the presence of sinners, I kept my mouth gagged, 3 dumb and patient, impotent for good. But indignation came back, 4 and my heart burned within me, the fire kindled by my thoughts, 5 so that at last I kept silence no longer.

Lord, warn me of my end, and how few my days are; teach me to know my own insufficiency. 6 See how thou hast measured my years with a brief span, how my life is nothing in thy reckoning! Nay, what is any man living but a breath that passes? 7 Truly man walks the world like a shadow; with what vain anxiety he hoards up riches, when he cannot tell who will have the counting of them! 8 What hope then is mine, Lord? In thee alone I trust. 9 Clear me of that manifold guilt which makes me the laughing-stock of fools, 10 tongue-tied and uncomplaining, because I know that my troubles come from thee; 11 spare me this punishment; I faint under thy powerful hand. 12 When thou dost chasten man to punish his sins, gone is all he loved, as if the moth had fretted it away; a breath that passes, and no more. 13 Listen, Lord, to my prayer, let my cry reach thy hearing, and my tears win answer. What am I in thy sight but a passer-by, a wanderer, as all my fathers were? 14 Thy frown relax, give me some breath of comfort, before I go away and am known no more.
2 Dixi: Custodiam vias meas:
ut non delinquam in lingua mea.
Posui ori meo custodiam,
cum consisteret peccator adversum me.
3
Obmutui, et humiliatus sum, et silui a bonis;
et dolor meus renovatus est.
4
Concaluit cor meum intra me;
et in meditatione mea exardescet ignis.
5
Locutus sum in lingua mea:
Notum fac mihi, Domine, finem meum,
et numerum dierum meorum quis est,
ut sciam quid desit mihi.
6
Ecce mensurabiles posuisti dies meos,
et substantia mea tamquam nihilum ante te.
Verumtamen universa vanitas, omnis homo vivens.
7
Verumtamen in imagine pertransit homo;
sed et frustra conturbatur:
thesaurizat, et ignorat cui congregabit ea.
8
Et nunc quæ est exspectatio mea: nonne Dominus?
et substantia mea apud te est.
9
Ab omnibus iniquitatibus meis erue me:
opprobrium insipienti dedisti me.
10
Obmutui, et non aperui os meum,
quoniam tu fecisti;
11
amove a me plagas tuas.
12
A fortitudine manus tuæ ego defeci in increpationibus:
propter iniquitatem corripuisti hominem.
Et tabescere fecisti sicut araneam animam ejus:
verumtamen vane conturbatur omnis homo.
13
Exaudi orationem meam, Domine, et deprecationem meam;
auribus percipe lacrimas meas.
Ne sileas, quoniam advena ego sum apud te,
et peregrinus sicut omnes patres mei.
14
Remitte mihi, ut refrigerer
priusquam abeam et amplius non ero.
