Beati immaculati in via,
qui ambulant in lege Domini.
2
Beati qui scrutantur testimonia ejus;

3
Non enim qui operantur iniquitatem

4
Tu mandasti mandata tua

5
Utinam dirigantur viæ meæ

6
Tunc non confundar,
cum perspexero in omnibus mandatis tuis.
7
Confitebor tibi in directione cordis,

8
Justificationes tuas custodiam;
non me derelinquas usquequaque.

In quo corrigit adolescentior viam suam?
in custodiendo sermones tuos.
10
In toto corde meo exquisivi te;
ne repellas me a mandatis tuis.
11
In corde meo abscondi eloquia tua,
ut non peccem tibi.
12
Benedictus es, Domine;
doce me justificationes tuas.
13
In labiis meis pronuntiavi omnia judicia oris tui.
14
In via testimoniorum tuorum delectatus sum,
sicut in omnibus divitiis.
15
In mandatis tuis exercebor,
et considerabo vias tuas.
16
In justificationibus tuis meditabor:
non obliviscar sermones tuos.
17 {G#} γιμαλ ἀνταπόδος τῷ δούλῳ σου ζήσομαι καὶ φυλάξω τοὺς λόγους σου 18 ἀποκάλυψον τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου καὶ κατανοήσω τὰ θαυμάσιά σου ἐκ τοῦ νόμου σου 19 πάροικος ἐγώ εἰμι ἐν τῇ γῇ μὴ ἀποκρύψῃς ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ τὰς ἐντολάς σου 20 ἐπεπόθησεν ἡ ψυχή μου τοῦ ἐπιθυμῆσαι τὰ κρίματά σου ἐν παντὶ καιρῷ 21 ἐπετίμησας ὑπερηφάνοις ἐπικατάρατοι οἱ ἐκκλίνοντες ἀπὸ τῶν ἐντολῶν σου 22 περίελε ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ ὄνειδος καὶ ἐξουδένωσιν ὅτι τὰ μαρτύριά σου ἐξεζήτησα 23 καὶ γὰρ ἐκάθισαν ἄρχοντες καὶ κα{T'} ἐμοῦ κατελάλουν ὁ δὲ δοῦλός σου ἠδολέσχει ἐν τοῖς δικαιώμασίν σου 24 καὶ γὰρ τὰ μαρτύριά σου μελέτη μού ἐστιν καὶ αἱ συμβουλίαι μου τὰ δικαιώματά σου 17 Crown thy servant with life, to live faithful to thy commands. 18 Clear sight be mine, to contemplate the wonders of thy law. 19 Comfort this earthly exile; do not refuse me the knowledge of thy will. 20 Crushed lies my spirit, longing ever for thy just awards. 21 Chastener of the proud, thy curse lies on all who swerve from thy covenant. 22 Clear me of the reproach that shames me, as I was ever attentive to thy claims. 23 Closeted together, princes plot against me, thy servant, that thinks only of thy decrees. 24 Claims lovingly cherished, decrees that are my counsellors! 17 Ghimel. Retribue servo tuo, vivifica me,
et custodiam sermones tuos.
18
Revela oculos meos,
et considerabo mirabilia de lege tua.
19
Incola ego sum in terra:
non abscondas a me mandata tua.
20
Concupivit anima mea

21
Increpasti superbos;
maledicti qui declinant a mandatis tuis.
22
Aufer a me opprobrium et contemptum,
quia testimonia tua exquisivi.
23
Etenim sederunt principes, et adversum me loquebantur;
servus autem tuus exercebatur in justificationibus tuis.
24
Nam et testimonia tua meditatio mea est,
et consilium meum justificationes tuæ.
25 {D#} δελθ ἐκολλήθη τῷ ἐδάφει ἡ ψυχή μου ζῆσόν με κατὰ τὸν λόγον σου 26 τὰς ὁδούς μου ἐξήγγειλα καὶ ἐπήκουσάς μου δίδαξόν με τὰ δικαιώματά σου 27 ὁδὸν δικαιωμάτων σου συνέτισόν με καὶ ἀδολεσχήσω ἐν τοῖς θαυμασίοις σου 28 ἔσταξεν ἡ ψυχή μου ἀπὸ ἀκηδίας βεβαίωσόν με ἐν τοῖς λόγοις σου 29 ὁδὸν ἀδικίας ἀπόστησον ἀ{P'} ἐμοῦ καὶ τῷ νόμῳ σου ἐλέησόν με 30 ὁδὸν ἀληθείας ᾑρετισάμην τὰ κρίματά σου οὐκ ἐπελαθόμην 31 ἐκολλήθην τοῖς μαρτυρίοις σου κύριε μή με καταισχύνῃς 32 ὁδὸν ἐντολῶν σου ἔδραμον ὅταν ἐπλάτυνας τὴν καρδίαν μου 25 Deep lies my soul in the dust, restore life to me, as thou hast promised. 26 Deign, now, to shew me thy will, thou who hast listened when I opened my heart to thee. 27 Direct me in the path thou biddest me follow, and all my musing shall be of thy wonderful deeds. 28 Despair wrings tears from me; let thy promises raise me up once more. 29 Deliver me from every false thought; make me free of thy covenant. 30 Duty’s path my choice, I keep thy bidding ever in remembrance. 31 Disappoint me, Lord, never, one that holds fast by thy commandments. 32 Do but open my heart wide, and easy lies the path thou hast decreed. 25 Daleth. Adhæsit pavimento anima mea:

26
Vias meas enuntiavi, et exaudisti me;
doce me justificationes tuas.
27
Viam justificationum tuarum instrue me,
et exercebor in mirabilibus tuis.
28
Dormitavit anima mea præ tædio:
confirma me in verbis tuis.
29
Viam iniquitatis amove a me,
et de lege tua miserere mei.
30
Viam veritatis elegi;
judicia tua non sum oblitus.
31
Adhæsi testimoniis tuis, Domine;
noli me confundere.
32
Viam mandatorum tuorum cucurri,
cum dilatasti cor meum.
33 {E#} η νομοθέτησόν με κύριε τὴν ὁδὸν τῶν δικαιωμάτων σου καὶ ἐκζητήσω αὐτὴν διὰ παντός 34 συνέτισόν με καὶ ἐξερευνήσω τὸν νόμον σου καὶ φυλάξω αὐτὸν ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ μου 35 ὁδήγησόν με ἐν τρίβῳ τῶν ἐντολῶν σου ὅτι αὐτὴν ἠθέλησα 36 κλῖνον τὴν καρδίαν μου εἰς τὰ μαρτύριά σου καὶ μὴ εἰς πλεονεξίαν 37 ἀπόστρεψον τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς μου τοῦ μὴ ἰδεῖν ματαιότητα ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ σου ζῆσόν με 38 στῆσον τῷ δούλῳ σου τὸ λόγιόν σου εἰς τὸν φόβον σου 39 περίελε τὸν ὀνειδισμόν μου ὃν ὑπώπτευσα τὰ γὰρ κρίματά σου χρηστά 40 ἰδοὺ ἐπεθύμησα τὰς ἐντολάς σου ἐν τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ σου ζῆσόν με 33 Expound, Lord, thy whole bidding to me; faithfully I will keep it. 34 Enlighten me, to scan thy law closely, and keep true to it with all my heart. 35 Eagerly I long to be guided in the way of thy obedience. 36 Ever let my choice be set on thy will, not on covetous thoughts. 37 Eyes have I none for vain phantoms; let me find life in following thy ways. 38 Establish with me, thy servant, the promise made to thy worshippers. 39 Ease me of the reproach my heart dreads, thou, whose awards are gracious. 40 Each command of thine I embrace lovingly; do thou in thy faithfulness grant me life. 33 He. Legem pone mihi, Domine, viam justificationum tuarum,

Deduc me in semitam mandatorum tuorum,

Inclina cor meum in testimonia tua,

Averte oculos meos, ne videant vanitatem;

Statue servo tuo eloquium tuum
in timore tuo.
39
Amputa opprobrium meum quod suspicatus sum,
quia judicia tua jucunda.

Ecce concupivi mandata tua:
in æquitate tua vivifica me.

46
Et loquebar in testimoniis tuis in conspectu regum,
et non confundebar.
47
Et meditabar in mandatis tuis,
quæ dilexi.
48
Et levavi manus meas ad mandata tua, quæ dilexi,
et exercebar in justificationibus tuis.
49 {Z#} ζαι μνήσθητι τὸν λόγον σου τῷ δούλῳ σου ᾧ ἐπήλπισάς με 50 αὕτη με παρεκάλεσεν ἐν τῇ ταπεινώσει μου ὅτι τὸ λόγιόν σου ἔζησέν με 51 ὑπερήφανοι παρηνόμουν ἕως σφόδρα ἀπὸ δὲ τοῦ νόμου σου οὐκ ἐξέκλινα 52 ἐμνήσθην τῶν κριμάτων σου ἀ{P'} αἰῶνος κύριε καὶ παρεκλήθην 53 ἀθυμία κατέσχεν με ἀπὸ ἁμαρτωλῶν τῶν ἐγκαταλιμπανόντων τὸν νόμον σου 54 ψαλτὰ ἦσάν μοι τὰ δικαιώματά σου ἐν τόπῳ παροικίας μου 55 ἐμνήσθην ἐν νυκτὶ τοῦ ὀνόματός σου κύριε καὶ ἐφύλαξα τὸν νόμον σου 56 αὕτη ἐγενήθη μοι ὅτι τὰ δικαιώματά σου ἐξεζήτησα 49 Go not back on the word thou hast pledged to thy servant; there lies all my hope. 50 Good news in my affliction, thy promises have brought me life. 51 Ground down by the scorn of my oppressors, never from thy law I swerve aside. 52 Gracious comfort, Lord, is the memory of thy just dealings in times long past. 53 Great ruth have I to see wrong-doers, and how they abandon thy law. 54 Gone out into a land of exile, of thy covenant I make my song. 55 Gloom of the night finds me still thinking of thy name, Lord, still observant of thy bidding. 56 Guerdon I ask no other, but the following of thy will. 49 Zain. Memor esto verbi tui servo tuo,

Cantabiles mihi erant justificationes tuæ
