The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 51  

51:1 Unto the end, understanding for David,

51:1 In finem Intellectus David

51:2 When Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul David went to the house of Achimelech

51:2 Cum venit Doeg Idumaeus et nuntiavit Sauli Venit David in domum Achimelech

51:3 Why dost thou glory in malice, thou that art mighty in iniquity?

51:3 Quid gloriatur in malitia qui potens est iniquitate

51:4 All the day long thy tongue hath devised injustice: as a sharp razor, thou hast wrought deceit.

51:4 Tota die iniustitiam cogitavit lingua tua sicut novacula acuta fecisti dolum

51:5 Thou hast loved malice more than goodness: and iniquity rather than to speak righteousness.

51:5 Dilexisti malitiam super benignitatem iniquitatem magis quam loqui aequitatem

51:6 Thou hast loved all the words of ruin, O deceitful tongue.

51:6 Dilexisti omnia verba praecipitationis linguam dolosam

51:7 Therefore will God destroy thee for ever: he will pluck thee out, and remove thee from thy dwelling place: and thy root out of the land of the living.

51:7 Propterea Deus destruet te in finem evellet te et emigrabit te de tabernaculo et radicem tuam de terra viventium

51:8 The just shall see and fear, and shall laugh at him, and say:

51:8 Videbunt iusti et timebunt et super eum ridebunt et dicent

51:9 Behold the man that made not God his helper: But trusted in the abundance of his riches: and prevailed in his vanity.

51:9 Ecce homo qui non posuit Deum adiutorem suum sed speravit in multitudine divitiarum suarum et praevaluit in vanitate sua

51:10 But I, as a fruitful olive tree in the house of God, have hoped in the mercy of God for ever, yea for ever and ever.

51:10 Ego autem sicut oliva fructifera in domo Dei speravi in misericordia Dei in aeternum et in saeculum saeculi

51:11 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name, for it is good in the sight of thy saints.

51:11 Confitebor tibi in saeculum quia fecisti et expectabo nomen tuum quoniam bonum in conspectu sanctorum tuorum
