The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 142  

142:1 Hear, O Lord, my prayer: give ear to my supplication in thy truth: hear me in thy justice.

142:1 Domine exaudi orationem meam auribus percipe obsecrationem meam in veritate tua exaudi me in tua iustitia

142:2 And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight no man living shall be justified.

142:2 Et non intres in iudicio cum servo tuo quia non iustificabitur in conspectu tuo omnis vivens

142:3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul: he hath brought down my life to the earth. He hath made me to dwell in darkness as those that have been dead of old:

142:3 Quia persecutus est inimicus animam meam humiliavit in terra vitam meam conlocavit me in obscuris sicut mortuos saeculi

142:4 and my spirit is in anguish within me: my heart within me is troubled.

142:4 Et anxiatus est super me spiritus meus in me turbatum est cor meum

142:5 I remembered the days of old, I meditated on all thy works: I meditated upon the works of thy hands.

142:5 Memor fui dierum antiquorum meditatus sum in omnibus operibus tuis in factis manuum tuarum meditabar

142:6 I stretched forth my hands to thee: my soul is as earth without water unto thee.

142:6 Expandi manus meas ad te anima mea sicut terra sine aqua tibi

142:7 Hear me speedily, O Lord: my spirit hath fainted away. Turn not away thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

142:7 Velociter exaudi me Domine defecit spiritus meus non avertas faciem tuam a me et similis ero descendentibus in lacum

142:8 Cause me to hear thy mercy in the morning; for in thee have I hoped. Make the way known to me, wherein I should walk: for I have lifted up my soul to thee.

142:8 Auditam mihi fac mane misericordiam tuam quia in te speravi notam fac mihi viam in qua ambulem quia ad te levavi animam meam

142:9 Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord, to thee have I fled:

142:9 Eripe me de inimicis meis Domine ad te confugi

142:10 teach me to do thy will, for thou art my God. Thy good spirit shall lead me into the right land:

142:10 Doce me facere voluntatem tuam quia Deus meus es tu spiritus tuus bonus deducet me in terra recta

142:11 for thy name's sake, O Lord, thou wilt quicken me in thy justice. Thou wilt bring my soul out of trouble:

142:11 Propter nomen tuum Domine vivificabis me in aequitate tua educes de tribulatione animam meam

142:12 and in thy mercy thou wilt destroy my enemies. And thou wilt cut off all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.

142:12 Et in misericordia tua disperdes inimicos meos et perdes omnes qui tribulant animam meam quoniam ego servus tuus sum
