The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 131  

131:1 O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness.

131:1 Memento Domine David et omnis mansuetudinis eius

131:2 How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob:

131:2 Sicut iuravit Domino votum vovit Deo Iacob

131:3 If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie:

131:3 Si introiero in tabernaculum domus meae si ascendero in lectum strati mei

131:4 If I shall give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids,

131:4 Si dedero somnum oculis meis et pal pebris meis dormitationem

131:5 Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.

131:5 Et requiem temporibus meis donec inveniam locum Domino tabernaculum Deo Iacob

131:6 Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood.

131:6 Ecce audivimus eam in Efrata invenimus eam in campis silvae

131:7 We will go into his tabernacle: We will adore in the place where his feet stood.

131:7 Introibimus in tabernacula eius adorabimus in loco ubi steterunt pedes eius

131:8 Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified.

131:8 Surge Domine in requiem tuam tu et arca sanctificationis tuae

131:9 Let thy priests be clothed with justice: and let thy saints rejoice.

131:9 Sacerdotes tui induentur iustitia et sancti tui exultabunt

131:10 For thy servant David's sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed.

131:10 Propter David servum tuum non avertas faciem christi tui

131:11 The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy throne.

131:11 Iuravit Dominus David veritatem et non frustrabit eum de fructu ventris tui ponam super sedem tuam

131:12 If thy children will keep thy covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them: Their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne.

131:12 Si custodierint filii tui testamentum meum et testimonia mea haec quae docebo eos et filii eorum usque in saeculum sedebunt super sedem tuam

131:13 For the Lord hath chosen Sion: he hath chosen it for his dwelling.

131:13 Quoniam elegit Dominus Sion elegit eam in habitationem sibi

131:14 This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it.

131:14 Haec requies mea in saeculum saeculi hic habitabo quoniam elegi eam

131:15 Blessing, I will bless her widow: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

131:15 Viduam eius benedicens benedicam pauperes eius saturabo panibus

131:16 I will clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy.

131:16 Sacerdotes eius induam salutari et sancti eius exultatione exultabunt

131:17 There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.

131:17 Illic producam cornu David paravi lucernam christo meo

131:18 His enemies I will clothe with confusion: but upon him will my sanctification flourish.

131:18 Inimicos eius induam confusione super ipsum autem efflorebit sanctificatio mea
