Book 21 Psalms
THE BOOK OF PSALMS
The psalms are called by the Hebrews TEHILLIM, that is,
Hymns of Praise.
The author, of a great part of them at least, was king
David: but many
are of opinion that some of them were made by Asaph,
and others whose
names are prefixed in the titles.
Psalms Chapter 1
Beatus vir.
The happiness of the just and the evil state of the wicked.
1:1. Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the
counsel of the
ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the
chair of
pestilence:
1:2. But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he
shall
meditate day and night.
1:3. And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the
running
waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And
his leaf
shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall
prosper.
1:4. Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which thewind
driveth from the face of the earth.
1:5. Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgment:
nor sinners
in the council of the just.
1:6. For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: and the way
of the wicked
shall perish.
Psalms Chapter 2
Quare fremuerunt.
The vain efforts of persecutors against Christ and his
church.
2:1. Why have the Gentiles raged, and the prople devised
vain things?
2:2. The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes met
together,
against the Lord, and against his Christ.
2:3. Let us break their bonds asunder: and let us cast
away their yoke
from us.
2:4. He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: and
the Lord shall
deride them.
2:5. Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and trouble
them in his
rage.
2:6. But I am appointed king by him over Sion, his holy
mountain,
preahing his comandment.
2:7. The Lord hath said to me: Thou art my son, this day
have I begotten
thee.2:8. Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy
inheritance,
and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.
2:9. Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and shalt
break them in
pieces like a potter's vessel.
2:10. And now, O ye kings, understand: receive
instruction, you that
judge the earth.
2:11. Serve ye the Lord with fear: and rejoice unto him
with trembling.
2:12. Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be
angry, and you
perish from the just way.
2:13. When his wrath shall be kindled in a short time,
blessed are all
they that trust in him.
Psalms Chapter 3
Domine, quid multiplicati.
The prophet's danger and delivery from his son Absalom:
mystically, the
passion and resurrection of Christ.
3:1. The psalm of David when he fled from the face of his
son Absalom.
3:2 Why, O Lord, are they multipied that affict me? many
are they who rise up against me.
3:3 Many say to my soul: There is no salvation for him in
his God.
3:4. But thou, O Lord, art my protector, my glory, and the
lifter up of
my head.3:5. I have cried to the Lord with my voice: and he hath
heard me from
his holy hill.
3:6. I have slept and have taken my rest: and I have risen
up, because
the Lord hath protected me.
3:7. I will not fear thousands of the people surrounding
me: arise, O
Lord; save me, O my God.
3:8. For thou hast struck all them who are my adversaries
without cause:
thou hast broken the teeth of sinners.
3:9. Salvation is of the Lord: and thy blessing is upon thy
people.
Psalms Chapter 4
Cum invocarem.
The prophet teacheth us to flee to God in tribulation, with
confidence
in him.
4:1. Unto the end, in verses. A psalm for David.
Unto the end... Or, as St. Jerome renders it, victori, to him
that
overcometh: which some understand of the chief
musician; to whom they
suppose the psalms, which bear that title, were given to
be sung: we
rather understand the psalms thus inscribed to refer to
Christ, who is
the end of the law, and the great conqueror of death and
hell, and to
the New Testament.-Ibid. In verses, in carminibus... In the
Hebrew, it
is neghinoth, supposed by some to be a musical
instrument, with whichthis psalm was to be sung.-Ibid. For David, or to David...
That is,
inspired to David himself, or to be sung.
4:2. When I called upon him, the God of my justice heard
me: when I was
in distress, thou hast enlarged me. Have mercy on me:
and hear my
prayer.
4:3. O ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart?
why do you
love vanity, and seek after lying?
4:4. Know ye also that the Lord hath made his holy one
wonderful: the
Lord will hear me when I shall cry unto him.
4:5. Be ye angry, and sin not: the things you say in your
hearts, be
sorry for them upon your beds.
4:6. Offer up the sacrifice of justice, and trust in the Lord:
many say,
Who sheweth us good things?
4:7. The light of thy countenance, O Lord, is signed upon
us: thou hast
given gladness in my heart.
4:8. By the fruit of their corn, their wine, and oil, they rest:
4:9. In peace in the self same I will sleep, and I will rest:
4:10. For thou, O Lord, singularly hast settled me in hope.
Psalms Chapter 5
Verba mea auribul.
A prayer to God against the iniquities of men.
5:1. Unto the end, for her that obtaineth the inheritance. A
psalm forDavid.
For her that obtaineth the inheritance... That is, for the
church of
Christ.
5:2. Give ear, O Lord, to my words, understand my cry.
5:3. Hearken to the voice of my prayer, O my King and my
God.
5:4. For to thee will I pray: O Lord, in the morning thou
shalt hear my
voice.
5:5. In the morning I will stand before thee, and I will see:
because
thou art not a God that willest iniquity.
5:6. Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: nor shall the
unjust
abide before thy eyes.
5:7. Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity: thou wilt
destroy all that
speak a lie. The bloody and the deceitful man the Lord
will abhor.
5:8. But as for me in the multitude of thy mercy, I will
come into thy
house; I will worship towards thy holy temple, in thy fear.
5:9. Conduct me, O Lord, in thy justice: because of my
enemies, direct
my way in thy sight.
5:10. For there is no truth in their mouth: their heart is
vain.
5:11. Their throat is an open sepulchre: they dealt
deceitfully with
their tongues: judge them, O God. Let them fall from their
devices:
according to the multitude of their wickednesses castaccording to the multitude of their wickednesses cast
them out: for they
have provoked thee, O Lord.
5:12. But let all them be glad that hope in thee: they shall
rejoice for
ever, and thou shalt dwell in them. And all they that love
thy name
shall glory in thee.
5:13. For thou wilt bless the just. O Lord, thou hast
crowned us, as
with a shield of thy good will.
Psalms Chapter 6
Domine, ne in furore.
A prayer of a penitent sinner, under the scourge of God.
The first
penitential psalm.
6:1. Unto the end, in verses, a psalm for David, for the
octave.
For the octave... That is, to be sung on an instrument of
eight strings.
St. Augustine understands it mystically, of the last
resurrection, and
the world to come; which is, as it were, the octave, or
eighth day,
after the seven days of this mortal life: and for this octave,
sinners
must dispose themselves, like David, by bewailing their
sins, whilst
they are here upon earth.
6:2. O Lord, rebuke me not in thy indignation, nor chastise
me in thy
wrath.
6:3. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak: heal me, O
Lord, for my
bones are troubled.6:4. And my soul is troubled exceedingly: but thou, O
Lord, how long?
6:5. Turn to me, O Lord, and deliver my soul: O save me
for thy mercy's
sake.
5:5. For there is no one indeath, that is mindful of thee:
and who shall
confess to thee in hell?
6:7. I have laboured in my groanings, every night I will
wash my bed: I
will water my couch with my tears.
6:8. My eye is troubled through indignation: I have grown
old amongst
all my enemies.
6:9. Depart from em, all ye workers of iniquity: for the Lord
hath heard
the voice of my weeping.
6:10. The Lord hath heard my supplication: the Lord hath
received my
prayer.
6:11. Let all my enemies be ashamed, and be very much
troubled: let them
be turned back, and be ashamed very speedily.
Psalms Chapter 7
Domine, Deus meus.
David, trusting in the justice of his cause, prayeth for
God's help
against his enemies.
7:1. The psalm of David, which he sung to the Lord, for
the words of
Chusi, the son of Jemini.7:2. O Lord, my God, in thee have I put my trust; same me
from all them
that persecute me, and deliver me.
7:3. Lest at any time he seize upon my soul like a lion,
while there is
no one to redeem me, nor to save.
7:4. O Lord, my God, if I have done this thing, if there be
iniquity in
my hands:
7:5. If I have rendered to them that repaid me evils, let me
deservedly
fall empty before my enemies.
7:6. Let the enemy pursue my soul, and take it, and tread
down my life,
on the earth, and bring down my glory to the dust.
7:7. Rise up, O Lord, in thy anger: and be thou exalted in
the borders
of my enemies. And arise, O Lord, my God, in the precept
which thou hast
commanded:
7:8. And a congregation of people shall surround thee.
And for their
sakes return thou on high.
7:9. The Lord judgeth the people. Judge me, O Lord,
according to my
justice, and according to my innocence in me.
7:10. The wickedness of sinners shall be brought to
nought; and thou
shalt direct the just: the searcher of hearts and reins is
God.
7:11. Just is my help from the Lord; who saveth the
upright of heart.
7:12. God is a just judge, strong and patient: is he angry
