Beatus qui intelligit. The happiness of him that shall believe in Christ; notwithstanding the humility and poverty in which he shall come: the malice of his enemies, especially of the traitor Judas.
1 Unto the end, a psalm for David himself.
In finem. Psalmus ipsi David.
2 Blessed is he that understandeth concerning the needy and the poor: the Lord will deliver him in the evil day.
Beatus qui intelligit super egenum et pauperem : in die mala liberabit eum Dominus.
3 The Lord preserve him and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth: and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.
Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum ejus.
4 The Lord help him on his bed of sorrow: thou hast turned all his couch in his sickness.
Dominus opem ferat illi super lectum doloris ejus; universum stratum ejus versasti in infirmitate ejus.
5 I said: O Lord, be thou merciful to me: heal my soul, for I have sinned against thee.
Ego dixi : Domine, miserere mei; sana animam meam, quia peccavi tibi.
6 My enemies have spoken evils against me: when shall he die and his name perish?
Inimici mei dixerunt mala mihi : Quando morietur, et peribit nomen ejus?
7 And if he came in to see me, he spoke vain things: his heart gathered together iniquity to itself. He went out and spoke to the same purpose.
Et si ingrediebatur ut videret, vana loquebatur; cor ejus congregavit iniquitatem sibi. Egrediebatur foras et loquebatur.
8 All my enemies whispered together against me: they devised evils to me.
In idipsum adversum me susurrabant omnes inimici mei; adversum me cogitabant mala mihi.
9 They determined against me an unjust word: shall he that sleepeth rise again no more?
Verbum iniquum constituerunt adversum me : Numquid qui dormit non adjiciet ut resurgat?
10 For even the man of peace, in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, hath greatly supplanted me.
Etenim homo pacis meae, in quo speravi, qui edebat panes meos magnificavit super me supplantationem.
11 But thou, O Lord, have mercy on me, and raise me up again: and I will requite them.
Tu autem, Domine, miserere mei, et resuscita me; et retribuam eis.
12 By this I know, that thou hast had a good will for me: because my enemy shall not rejoice over me.
In hoc cognovi quoniam voluisti me, quoniam non gaudebit inimicus meus super me.
13 But thou hast upheld me by reason of my innocence: and hast established me in thy sight for ever.
Me autem propter innocentiam suscepisti; et confirmasti me in conspectu tuo in aeternum.
14 Blessed be the Lord the God of Israel from eternity to eternity. So be it. So be it.
Benedictus Dominus, Deus Israel, a saeculo, et usque in saeculum. Fiat, fiat.
