Clementine Vulgate (Psalm 100)

Latin.png Latin text

1  Psalmus ipsi David.
  Misericordiam et judicium cantabo tibi, Domine; psallam,
2  et intelligam in via immaculata: quando venies ad me?
  Perambulabam in innocentia cordis mei, in medio domus meae.
3  Non proponebam ante oculos meos rem injustam;
  facientes praevaricationes odivi; non adhaesit mihi
4  cor pravum; declinantem a me malignum non cognoscebam.
5  Detrahentem secreto proximo suo, hunc persequebar:
  superbo oculo, et insatiabili corde, cum hoc non edebam.
6  Oculi mei ad fideles terrae, ut sedeant mecum;
  ambulans in via immaculata, hic mihi ministrabat.
7  Non habitabit in medio domus meae qui facit superbiam;
  qui loquitur iniqua non direxit in conspectu oculorum meorum.
8  In matutino interficiebam omnes peccatores terrae,
  ut disperderem de civitate Domini omnes operantes iniquitatem.

Church of England 1662 Book of Common Prayer

1  My song shall be of mercy and judgement: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing.
2  O let me have understanding: in the way of godliness.
3  When wilt thou come unto me?
  I will walk in my house with a perfect heart.
4  I will take no wicked thing in hand;
  I hate the sins of unfaithfulness:
  there shall no such cleave unto me.
5  A froward heart shall depart from me:
  I will not know a wicked person.
6  Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour: him will I destroy.
7  Whoso hath also a proud look and high stomach:
  I will not suffer him.
8  Mine eyes look upon such as are faithful in the land:
  that they may dwell with me.
9  Whoso leadeth a godly life: he shall be my servant.
10  There shall no deceitful person dwell in my house:
  he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
11  I shall soon destroy all the ungodly that are in the land:
  that I may root out all wicked doers from the city of the Lord.

Dávid zsoltára.
Irgalmasságot és itéletet éneklek, Uram! neked éneklek.
Figyelni fogok a szeplőtelen útra, mikor hozzám jösz; szívem ártatlanságában fogok járni az én házamnak közepette.
Nem teszek szemeim elé igaztalan dolgot, a törvényszegőket gyülölöm. Nem fog ragaszkodni hozzám
az álnok szív; a tőlem elhajló gonosztevőnek nem leszek ismerője.
Ki felebarátját titkon rágalmazza, azt üldözőbe veszem; kinek szeme kevély, szíve telhetetlen, azzal nem eszem.
Szemeim a föld hívein lesznek, hogy velem üljenek; ki szeplőtelen úton jár, az fog szolgálni nekem.
Nem lesz lakása házamban, ki kevélyen cselekszik; s az igaztalanúl szólónak szemeim előtt nem lesz maradása.
Korán kiírtom a föld minden bűnösét, s az Úr városából mind elvesztem a gonoszúl cselekvőket.

English Metrical Paraphrases by Isaac Watts, 1719

PART 1 (L. M.)
The magistrate's Psalm
Mercy and judgment are my song;
And since they both to thee belong,
My gracious God, my righteous King,
To thee my songs and vows I bring.

If I am raised to bear the sword,
I'll take my counsels from thy word;
Thy justice and thy heavenly grace
Shall be the pattern of my ways.

Let wisdom all my actions guide,
And let my God with me reside;
No wicked thing shall dwell with me
Which may provoke thy jealousy.

No sons of slander, rage, and strife
Shall be companions of my life;
The haughty look, the heart of pride,
Within my doors shall ne'er abide.

I'll search the land, and raise the just
To posts of honor, wealth, and trust;
The men that work thy holy will
Shall be my friends and favorites still.

In vain shall sinners hope to rise
By flattering or malicious lies;
And while the innocent I guard,
The bold offender shan't be spared.

The impious crew, that factious band,
Shall hide their heads or quit the land;
And all that break the public rest,
Where I have power, shall be suppressed.


PART 2 (C. M.)
A Psalm for a master of a family
Of justice and of grace I sing,
And pay my God my vows;
Thy grace and justice, heavenly King,
Teach me to rule my house.

Now to my tent, O God, repair,
And make thy servant wise;
I'll suffer nothing near me there
That shall offend thine eyes.

The man that doth his neighbor wrong
By falsehood or by force,
The scornful eye, the slanderous tongue
I'll thrust them from my doors.

I'll seek the faithful and the just,
And will their help enjoy;
These are the friends that I shall trust,
The servants I'll employ.

The wretch that deals in sly deceit
I'll not endure a night:
The liar's tongue I ever hate,
And banish from my sight.

I'll purge my family around,
And make the wicked flee;
So shall my house be ever found
A dwelling fit for thee.
