Confitebor tibi, Domine. The church praiseth God for his protection against her enemies.

[1] Unto the end, for the hidden things of the Son. A psalm for David. [2] I will give praise to thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: I will relate all thy wonders. [3] I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing to thy name, O thou most high. [4] When my enemy shall be turned back: they shall be weakened and perish before thy face. [5] For thou hast maintained my judgment and my cause: thou hast sat on the throne, who judgest justice.

[1] The hidden things of the Son: The humility and sufferings of Christ, the Son of God; and of good Christians, who are his sons by adoption; are called hidden things, with regard to the children of this world, who know not the value and merit of them.

[6] Thou hast rebuked the Gentiles, and the wicked one hath perished: thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever. [7] The swords of the enemy have failed unto the end: and their cities thou hast destroyed. Their memory hath perished with a noise. [8] But the Lord remaineth for ever. He hath prepared his throne in judgment: [9] And he shall judge the world in equity, he shall judge the people in justice. [10] And the Lord is become a refuge for the poor: a helper in due time in tribulation.

[11] And let them trust in thee who know thy name: for thou hast not forsaken them that seek thee, O Lord. [12] Sing ye to the Lord, who dwelleth in Sion: declare his ways among the Gentiles: [13] For requiring their blood he hath remembered them: he hath not forgotten the cry of the poor. [14] Have mercy on me, O Lord: see my humiliation which I suffer from my enemies. [15] Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death, that I may declare all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion.

[16] I will rejoice in thy salvation: the Gentiles have stuck fast in the destruction which they have prepared. Their foot hath been taken in the very snare which they hid. [17] The Lord shall be known when he executeth judgments: the sinner hath been caught in the works of his own hands. [18] The wicked shall be turned into hell, all the nations that forget God. [19] For the poor man shall not be forgotten to the end: the patience of the poor shall not perish for ever. [20] Arise, O Lord, let not man be strengthened: let the Gentiles be judged in thy sight.

[21] Appoint, O Lord, a lawgiver over them: that the Gentiles may know themselves to be but men. [22] Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off? why dost thou slight us in our wants, in the time of trouble? [23] Whilst the wicked man is proud, the poor is set on fire: they are caught in the counsels which they devise. [24] For the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul: and the unjust man is blessed. [25] The sinner hath provoked the Lord according to the multitude of his wrath he will not seek him:

[26] God is not before his eyes: his ways are filthy at all times. Thy judgments are removed from his sight: he shall rule over all his enemies. [27] For he hath said in his heart: I shall not be moved from generation to generation, and shall be without evil. [28] His mouth is full of cursing, and of bitterness, and of deceit: under his tongue are labour and sorrow. [29] He sitteth in ambush with the rich in private places, that he may kill the innocent. [30] His eyes are upon the poor man: He lieth in wait in secret like a lion in his den. He lieth in ambush that he may catch the poor man: to catch the poor, whilst he draweth him to him.

[31] In his net he will bring him down, he will crouch and fall, when he shall have power over the poor. [32] For he hath said in his heart: God hath forgotten, he hath turned away his face not to see to the end. [33] Arise, O Lord God, let thy hand be exalted: forget not the poor. [34] Wherefore hath the wicked provoked God? for he hath said in his heart: He will not require it. [35] Thou seest it, for thou considerest labour and sorrow: that thou mayst deliver them into thy hands. To thee is the poor man left: thou wilt be a helper to the orphan.

[36] Break thou the arm of the sinner and of the malignant: his sin shall be sought, and shall not be found. [37] The Lord shall reign to eternity, yea, for ever and ever: ye Gentiles shall perish from his land. [38] The Lord hath heard the desire of the poor: thy ear hath heard the preparation of their heart. [39] To judge for the fatherless and for the humble, that man may no more presume to magnify himself upon earth.
