Dominus illuminatio. David's faith and hope in God.
 The psalm of David before he was anointed. The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life: of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalmus David, priusquam liniretur. Dominus illuminatio mea et salus mea; quem timebo? Dominus protector vitae meae; a quo trepidabo?
 Whilst the wicked draw near against me, to eat my flesh. My enemies that trouble me, have themselves been weakened, and have fallen.
Dum appropiant super me nocentes, ut edant carnes meas, qui tribulant me inimici mei, ipsi infirmati sunt et ceciderunt.
 If armies in camp should stand together against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident.
Si consistant adversum me castra, non timebit cor meum. Si exsurgat adversum me praelium, in hoc ego sperabo.
 One thing I have asked of the Lord, this will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. That I may see the delight of the Lord, and may visit his temple.
Unam petii a Domino, hanc requiram, ut inhabitem in domo Domini omnibus diebus vitae meae, ut videam voluptatem Domini, et visitem templum ejus.
 For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle.
Quoniam abscondit me in tabernaculo suo; in die malorum protexit me in abscondito tabernaculi sui.
 He hath exalted me upon a rock: and now he hath lifted up my head above my enemies. I have gone round, and have offered up in his tabernacle a sacrifice of jubilation: I will sing, and recite a psalm to the Lord.
In petra exaltavit me, et nunc exaltavit caput meum super inimicos meos. Circuivi, et immolavi in tabernaculo ejus hostiam vociferationis; cantabo, et psalmum dicam Domino.
 Hear, O Lord, my voice, with which I have cried to thee: have mercy on me and hear me.
Exaudi, Domine, vocem meam, qua clamavi ad te; miserere mei, et exaudi me.
 My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: thy face, O Lord, will I still seek.
Tibi dixit cor meum, exquisivit te facies mea; faciem tuam, Domine, requiram.
 Turn not away thy face from me; decline not in thy wrath from thy servant. Be thou my helper, forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour.
Ne avertas faciem tuam a me; ne declines in ira a servo tuo. Adjutor meus esto; ne derelinquas me, neque despicias me, Deus salutaris meus.
 For my father and my mother have left me: but the Lord hath taken me up.
Quoniam pater meus et mater mea dereliquerunt me; Dominus autem assumpsit me.
 Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, and guide me in the right path, because of my enemies.
Legem pone mihi, Domine, in via tua, et dirige me in semitam rectam, propter inimicos meos.
 Deliver me not over to the will of them that trouble me; for unjust witnesses have risen up against me; and iniquity hath lied to itself.
Ne tradideris me in animas tribulantium me, quoniam insurrexerunt in me testes iniqui, et mentita est iniquitas sibi.
 I believe to see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.
Credo videre bona Domini in terra viventium.
 Expect the Lord, do manfully, and let thy heart take courage, and wait thou for the Lord.
Expecta Dominum, viriliter age, et confortetur cor tuum, et sustine Dominum.
