Laudate Dominum. An exhortation to praise God for his benefits.
1 Praise ye the Lord, because psalm is good: to our God be joyful and comely praise.
Alleluja. Laudate Dominum, quoniam bonus est psalmus; Deo nostro sit jucunda, decoraque laudatio.
2 The Lord buildeth up Jerusalem: he will gather together the dispersed of Israel.
Aedificans Jerusalem Dominus, dispersiones Israelis congregabit;
3 Who healeth the broken of heart, and bindeth up their bruises.
qui sanat contritos corde, et alligat contritiones eorum;
4 Who telleth the number of the stars: and calleth them all by their names.
qui numerat multitudinem stellarum, et omnibus eis nomina vocat.
5 Great is our Lord, and great is his power: and of his wisdom there is no number.
Magnus Dominus noster, et magna virtus ejus; et sapientiae ejus non est numerus.
6 The Lord lifteth up the meek, and bringeth the wicked down even to the ground.
Suscipiens mansuetos Dominus; humilians autem peccatores usque ad terram.
7 Sing ye to the Lord with praise: sing to our God upon the harp.
Praecinite Domino in confessione, psallite Deo nostro in cithara.
8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, and prepareth rain for the earth. Who maketh grass to grow on the mountains, and herbs for the service of men.
Qui operit caelum nubibus, et parat terrae pluviam; qui producit in montibus foenum, et herbam servituti hominum;
9 Who giveth to beasts their food: and to the young ravens that call upon him.
qui dat jumentis escam ipsorum, et pullis corvorum invocantibus eum.
10 He shall not delight in the strength of the horse: nor take pleasure in the legs of a man.
Non in fortitudine equi voluntatem habebit, nec in tibiis viri beneplacitum erit ei.
11 The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him: and in them that hope in his mercy.
Beneplacitum est Domino super timentes eum, et in eis qui sperant super misericordia ejus.
