Non est invéntus símilis illi,
qui conserváret legem Excélsi.
(Ps. 7) Dómine, Deus meus, in te sperávi:
salvum me fac ex ómnibus persequéntibus me, et líbera me.
2. Nequándo rápiat ut leo ánimam meam,
dum non est qui rédimat, neque qui salvum fáciat.
3. Dómine, Deus meus, si feci istud,
si est iníquitas in mánibus meis:
4. Si réddidi retribuéntibus mihi mala,
décidam mérito ab inimícis meis inánis.
5. Persequátur inimícus ánimam meam,
et comprehéndat, et concúlcet in terra vitam meam,
et glóriam meam in púlverem dedúcat.
6. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
7. Sicut erat in principio et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
8. Exsúrge, Dómine, in ira tua:
et exaltáre in fínibus inimicórum meórum.
9. Et exsúrge, Dómine Deus meus, in præcépto quod mandásti:
et synagóga populórum circúmdabit te.
10. Et propter hanc in altum regrédere:
Dóminus júdicat pópulos.
11. Júdica me, Dómine, secúndum justítiam meam,
et secúndum innocéntiam meam super me.
12. Consumétur nequítia peccatórum, et díriges justum,
scrutans corda et renes Deus.
13. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
14. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
15. Justum adjutórium meum a Dómino,
qui salvos facit rectos corde.
16. Deus judex justus, fortis, et pátiens:
numquid iráscitur per síngulos dies?
17. Nisi convérsi fuéritis, gládium suum vibrábit:
arcum suum teténdit, et parávit illum.
18. Et in eo parávit vasa mortis:
sagíttas suas ardéntibus effécit.
19. Ecce partúriit injustítiam:
concépit dolórem, et péperit iniquitátem.
20. Lacum apéruit, et effódit eum:
et íncidit in fóveam quam fecit.
21. Convertétur dolor ejus in caput ejus:
et in vérticem ipsíus iníquitas ejus descéndet.
22. Confitébor Dómino secúndum justítiam ejus:
et psallam nómini Dómini altíssimi.
23. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
24. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Non est invéntus símilis illi,
qui conserváret legem Excélsi.
There was not found the like to him in glory,
who kept the law of the most High.
(Ps. 7) O Lord, my God, in you I have hoped.
Save me from all those who persecute me, and free me:
2. lest at any time, like a lion, he might seize my soul,
while there is no one to redeem me, nor any who can save.
3. O Lord, my God, if I have done this:
if there is iniquity in my hands.
4. If I have repaid those who rendered evils to me,
may I deservedly fall away empty before my enemies:
5. Let the enemy pursue my soul,
and take hold of it, and trample my life into the earth,
and drag down my glory into the dust.
6. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
7. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
8. Rise up, Lord, in your anger.
And be exalted to the borders of my enemies.
9. And rise up, O Lord my God, according to the precept that you commanded,
and a congregation of people will surround you.
10. And, because of this, return on high.
The Lord judges the people.
11. Judge me, O Lord, according to my justice
and according to my innocence within me.
12. The wickedness of sinners will be consumed, and you will direct the just:
the examiner of hearts and temperaments is God.
13. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
14. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
15. Just is my help from the Lord,
who saves the upright of heart.
16. God is a just judge, strong and patient.
How could he be angry throughout every day?
17. Unless you will be converted, he will brandish his sword.
He has extended his bow and made it ready.
18. And with it, he has prepared instruments of death.
He has produced his arrows for those on fire.
19. Behold him who has given birth to injustice:
he has conceived sorrow and has begotten iniquity.
20. He has opened a pit and enlarged it.
And he has fallen into the hole that he made.
21. His sorrow will be turned upon his own head,
and his iniquity will descend upon his highest point.
22. I will confess to the Lord according to his justice,
and I will sing a psalm to the name of the Lord Most High.
23. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
24. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
There was not found the like to him in glory,
who kept the law of the most High.
