Et omnis mansuetúdinis ejus.
(Ps. 131) Meménto Dómine, David,
et omnis mansuetúdinis ejus:
2. Sicut jurávit Dómino,
votum vovit Deo Jacob:
3. Si introíero in tabernáculum domus meæ,
si ascéndero in lectum strati mei:
4. Si dédero somnum óculis meis,
et pálpebris meis dormitatiónem:
5. Et réquiem tempóribus meis: donec invéniam locum Dómino,
tabernáculum Deo Jacob.
6. Ecce audívimus eam in Ephrata:
invénimus eam in campis silvæ.
7. Introíbimus in tabernáculum ejus:
adorábimus in loco, ubi stetérunt pedes ejus.
8. Surge, Dómine, in réquiem tuam,
tu et arca sanctificatiónis tuæ.
9. Sacerdótes tui induántur justítiam:
et sancti tui exsúltent.
10. Propter David, servum tuum:
non avértas fáciem Christi tui.
11. Jurávit Dóminus David veritátem, et non frustrábitur eam:
de fructu ventris tui ponam super sedem tuam.
12. Si custodíerint fílii tui testaméntum meum:
et testimónia mea hæc, quæ docébo eos.
13. Et fílii eórum usque in sǽculum:
sedébunt super sedem tuam.
14. Quóniam elégit Dóminus Sion:
elégit eam in habitatiónem sibi.
15. Hæc réquies mea in sǽculum sǽculi:
hic habitábo, quóniam elégi eam.
16. Víduam ejus benedícens benedícam:
páuperes ejus saturábo pánibus.
17. Sacerdótes ejus índuam salutári:
et sancti ejus exsultatióne exsultábunt.
18. Illuc prodúcam cornu David:
parávi lucérnam Christo meo.
19. Inimícos ejus índuam confusióne:
super ipsum autem efflorébit sanctificátio mea.
20. Glória Patri, et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sancto.
21. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Et omnis mansuetúdinis ejus.
And all his meekness.
(Ps. 131) O Lord, remember David
and all his meekness.
2. How he swore to the Lord,
how he made a vow to the God of Jacob:
3. I shall not enter into the tabernacle of my house,
nor climb into the bed where I lie down;
4. I shall not give sleep to my eyes,
nor slumber to my eyelids.
5. And rest to my temples, until I find a place for the Lord,
a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
6. Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah.
We discovered it in the fields of the forest.
7. We will enter into his tabernacle.
We will adore in the place where his feet stood.
8. Rise up, O Lord, into your resting place.
You and the ark of your sanctification.
9. Let your priests be clothed with justice,
and let your saints exult.
10. For the sake of your servant David,
do not turn away the face of your Christ.
11. The Lord has sworn the truth to David, and he will not disappoint:
I will set upon your throne from the fruit of your lineage.
12. If your sons will keep my covenant
and these, my testimonies, which I will teach to them,
13. Then their sons even forever,
will sit upon your throne.
14. For the Lord has chosen Zion.
He has chosen it as his dwelling place.
15. This is my resting place, forever and ever.
Here I will dwell, for I have chosen it.
16. When blessing, I will bless her widow.
I will satisfy her poor with bread.
17. I will clothe her priests with salvation,
and her saints will rejoice with great joy.
18. There, I will produce a horn to David.
There, I have prepared a lamp for my Christ.
19. I will clothe his enemies with confusion.
But my sanctification will flourish over him.
20. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
21. As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And all his meekness.
