The Holy Bible - The Psalms, Chapter 17 (Latin)
1(16:1)Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
2(16:2)Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
3(16:3)Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4(16:4)Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
5(16:5)Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6(16:6)I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7(16:7)Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
8(16:8)Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
9(16:9)From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10(16:10)They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
11(16:11)They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
12(16:12)Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13(16:13)Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
14(16:14)From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15(16:15)As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
1oratio David audi Deus iustum intende deprecationem meam auribus percipe orationem meam absque labiis mendacii
2de vultu tuo iudicium meum prodeat oculi tui videant aequitates
3probasti cor meum visitasti nocte conflasti me et non invenisti
4cogitationes meas transire os meum in opere hominum propter verbum labiorum tuorum ego observavi vias latronis
5sustenta gressus meos in callibus tuis et non labentur vestigia mea
6ego invocavi te quia exaudies me Deus inclina aurem tuam mihi audi eloquium meum
7mirabilem fac misericordiam tuam salvator sperantium
8a resistentibus dexterae tuae custodi me quasi pupillam intus in oculo in umbra alarum tuarum protege me
9a facie impiorum vastantium me inimici mei animam meam circumdederunt
10adipe suo concluserunt et ore locuti sunt superbe
11incedentes adversum me nunc circumdederunt me oculos suos posuerunt declinare in terram
12similitudo eius quasi leonis desiderantis praedam et quasi catuli leonis sedentis in absconditis
13surge Domine praeveni faciem eius incurva eum salva animam meam ab impio qui est gladius tuus
14a viris manus tuae Domine qui mortui sunt in profundo quorum pars in vita et quorum de absconditis tuis replesti ventrem qui satiabuntur filiis et dimittent reliquias suas parvulis eorum
15ego in iustitia videbo faciem tuam implebor cum evigilavero similitudine tua
