The Holy Bible - The Psalms, Chapter 39 (Latin)
1(38:2)I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
2(38:3)I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
3(38:4)My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,
4(38:5)LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am.
5(38:6)Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
6(38:7)Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
7(38:8)And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
8(38:9)Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
9(38:10)I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
10(38:11)Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
11(38:12)When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
12(38:13)Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
13(38:14)O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
1pro victoria Idithun canticum David
2dixi custodiam vias meas ne peccem in lingua mea custodiam os meum silentio donec est impius contra me
3obmutui silentio tacui de bono et dolor meus conturbatus est
4incaluit cor meum in medio mei in meditatione mea incensus sum igni
5locutus sum lingua mea ostende mihi Domine finem meum et mensuram dierum meorum quae sit ut sciam quid mihi desit
6ecce breves posuisti dies meos et vita mea quasi non sit in conspectu tuo omnia enim vanitas omnis homo stans semper
7tantum in imagine ambulat homo tantum frustra turbatur congregat et ignorat cui dimittat ea
8nunc ergo quid expecto Domine praestolatio mea tu es
9ab omnibus iniquitatibus meis libera me obprobrium stulto ne ponas me
10obmutui non aperiam os meum quia tu fecisti
11tolle a me plagas tuas
12a contentione manus tuae ego consumptus sum in increpationibus pro iniquitate corripuisti virum et posuisti quasi tineam desiderabilia eius verumtamen vanitas omnis homo semper
13audi orationem meam Domine et clamorem meum exaudi ad lacrimam meam ne obsurdescas quia advena ego sum apud te et peregrinus sicut omnes patres mei
14parce mihi ut rideam antequam vadam et non subsistam
