1 Magistro chori. PSALMUS. David.
2 In te, Domine, speravi, non confundar in aeternum; in iustitia tua libera me.
3 Inclina ad me aurem tuam, accelera, ut eruas me. Esto mihi in rupem praesidii et in domum munitam, ut salvum me facias.
4 Quoniam fortitudo mea et refugium meum es tu et propter nomen tuum deduces me et pasces me.
5 Educes me de laqueo, quem absconderunt mihi, quoniam tu es fortitudo mea.
6 In manus tuas commendo spiritum meum; redemisti me, Domine, Deus veritatis.
7 Odisti observantes vanitates supervacuas, ego autem in Domino speravi.
8 Exsultabo et laetabor in misericordia tua, quoniam respexisti humilitatem meam; agnovisti necessitates animae meae
9 nec conclusisti me in manibus inimici; statuisti in loco spatioso pedes meos.
10 Miserere mei, Domine, quoniam tribulor; conturbatus est in maerore oculus meus, anima mea et venter meus.
11 Quoniam defecit in dolore vita mea, et anni mei in gemitibus; infirmata est in paupertate virtus mea, et ossa mea contabuerunt.
12 Apud omnes inimicos meos factus sum opprobrium et vicinis meis valde et timor notis meis: qui videbant me foras, fugiebant a me.
13 Oblivioni a corde datus sum tamquam mortuus; factus sum tamquam vas perditum.
14 Quoniam audivi vituperationem multorum: horror in circuitu; in eo dum convenirent simul adversum me, auferre animam meam consiliati sunt.
15 Ego autem in te speravi, Domine; dixi: "Deus meus es tu,
16 in manibus tuis sortes meae". Eripe me de manu inimicorum meorum et a persequentibus me;
17 illustra faciem tuam super servum tuum, salvum me fac in misericordia tua.
18 Domine, non confundar, quoniam invocavi te; erubescant impii et obmutescant in inferno.
19 Muta fiant labia dolosa, quae loquuntur adversus iustum proterva in superbia et in abusione.
20 Quam magna multitudo dulcedinis tuae, Domine, quam abscondisti timentibus te. Perfecisti eis, qui sperant in te, in conspectu filiorum hominum.
21 Abscondes eos in abscondito faciei tuae a conturbatione hominum; proteges eos in tabernaculo a contradictione linguarum.
22 Benedictus Dominus, quoniam mirificavit misericordiam suam mihi in civitate munita.
23 Ego autem dixi in trepidatione mea: "Praecisus sum a conspectu oculorum tuorum". Verumtamen exaudisti vocem orationis meae, dum clamarem ad te.
24 Diligite Dominum, omnes sancti eius: fideles conservat Dominus et retribuit abundanter facientibus superbiam.
25 Viriliter agite, et confortetur cor vestrum, omnes, qui speratis in Domino.
King James Version
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.
5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.
9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
14 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.
15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.
17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
21 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.
23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
