Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 119:145-176 Beatus vir

Clamavi in toto corde meo

I call with my whole heart;
hear me, O Lord.

I will keep thy statutes.

Yea, even unto thee do I call;
help me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.

Early in the morning do I cry unto thee;
for in thy word is my trust.

Mine eyes prevent the night-watches;
that I might be occupied in thy words.

Hear my voice, O Lord, according unto thy loving-kindness; quicken me, as thou art wont.

They draw nigh that of malice persecute me, and are far from thy law.

Be thou nigh at hand, O Lord;
for all thy commandments are true.

As concerning thy testimonies, I have known long since that thou hast grounded them for ever.

Vide humilitatem

O consider mine adversity, and deliver me, for I do not forget thy law.

Avenge thou my cause, and deliver me;
quicken me, according to thy word.

Health is far from the ungodly; for they regard not thy statutes.

Great is thy mercy, O Lord; quicken me, as thou art wont.

Many there are that trouble me, and persecute me;
yet do I not swerve from thy testimonies. It grieveth me when I see the transgressors, because they keep not thy law.

Consider, O Lord, how I love thy commandments; O quicken me, according to thy loving-kindness. Thy word is true from everlasting;
all the judgements of thy righteousness endure for evermore.

Principes persecuti sunt

Princes have persecuted me without a cause;
but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

I am as glad of thy word, as one that findeth great spoils.

As for lies, I hate and abhor them; but thy law do I love.

Seven times a day do I praise thee, because of thy righteous judgements.

Great is the peace that they have who love thy law;
and they are not offended at it. Lord, I have looked for thy saving health, and done after thy commandments.

My soul hath kept thy testimonies, and loved them exceedingly.

I have kept thy commandments and testimonies;
for all my ways are before thee.

Appropinquet deprecatio

Let my complaint come before thee, O Lord;
give me understanding, according to thy word.

Let my supplication come before thee;
deliver me, according to thy word.

My lips shall speak of thy praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes. Yea, my tongue shall sing of thy word;
for all thy commandments are righteous.

Let thine hand help me;
for I have chosen thy commandments.

I have longed for thy saving health, O Lord;
and in thy law is my delight.

O let my soul live, and it shall praise thee;
and thy judgements shall help me.

I have gone astray like a sheep that is lost;
O seek thy servant, for I do not forget thy commandments.
