Clementine Vulgate (Psalm 10)

Latin.png Latin text

1  In finem. Psalmus David.
2  In Domino confido; quomodo dicitis animae meae: Transmigra in montem sicut passer?
3  Quoniam ecce peccatores intenderunt arcum; paraverunt sagittas suas in pharetra,
ut sagittent in obscuro rectos corde:
4  quoniam quae perfecisti destruxerunt; justus autem, quid fecit?
5  Dominus in templo sancto suo; Dominus in caelo sedes ejus.
  Oculi ejus in pauperem respiciunt; palpebrae ejus interrogant filios hominum.
6  Dominus interrogat justum et impium; qui autem diligit iniquitatem,
odit animam suam.
7  Pluet super peccatores laqueos; ignis et sulphur, et spiritus procellarum,
pars calicis eorum.
8  Quoniam justus Dominus, et justitias dilexit: aequitatem vidit vultus ejus.

King James Version

1  In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye then to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
2  For lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
3  If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4  The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's seat is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
5  The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
6  Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be their portion of their cup.
7  For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

Douay-Rhemis Bible (Psalm 10)

English.png English translation

1  Unto the end. A psalm for David.
2  In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: Get thee away from hence to the mountain like a sparrow?
3  For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow; they have prepared their arrows in the quiver; to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.
4  For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: but what has the just man done?
5  The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord' s throne is in heaven. His eyes look on the poor man: his eyelids examine the sons of men.
6  The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: but he that loveth iniquity hateth his own soul.
7  He shall rain snares upon sinners: fire and brimstone and storms of winds shall be the portion of their cup.
8  For the Lord is just, and hath loved justice: his countenance hath beheld righteousness.

  To the end. A psalm of David.
1  In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye then to my soul, that she should flee as a bird unto the hill?
2  For lo, the ungodly bend their bow, and make ready their arrows within the quiver:
that they may privily shoot at them which are true of heart.
3  For the foundations will be cast down: and what hath the righteous done?
4  The Lord is in his holy temple: the Lord's seat is in heaven.
5  His eyes consider the poor: and his eye-lids try the children of men.
6  The Lord alloweth the righteous: but the ungodly, and him that delighteth in wickedness,
doth his soul abhor.
7  Upon the ungodly he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, storm and tempest:
this shall be their portion to drink.
8  For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness: his countenance will behold the thing that is just.

Káldi fordítás (10. zsoltár)

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Végig Dávid zsoltára.
Az Úrban bízom; hogyan mondjátok lelkemnek: Költözzél a hegyre, mint a veréb?
Mert íme a bűnösök megvonták a kézíjat, elkészítették nyilaikat a tegezben, hogy lövöldözzék titkon az igaz szivűeket;
mert a miket te állítottál, elbontották; de az igaz mit cselekedett?
Az Úr az ő szent templomában, az Úr széke mennyben vagyon; szemei a szegényre néznek, és szempillái vizsgálják az emberek fiait.
Az Úr megvizsgálja az igazat és az istentelent; ki pedig a gonoszságot szereti, lelkét gyülöli.
A bűnösökre tőröket hullat; tűz és kénkő és viharok szele az ő kelyhök része.
Mert az Úr igaz, és igazságot szeret, és igazra néz az ő orczája.

Metrical 'New Version' (Tate/Brady)

English.png English text

Since I have plac'd my trust in God,
A refuge always nigh,
Why should I, like a tim'rous bird,
To distant mountains fly?

Behold, the wicked bend their bow,
And ready fix their dart;
Lurking in ambush to destroy
The man of upright heart.

When once the firm assurance fails
Which public faith imparts,
'Tis time for innocence to fly
From such deceitful arts.

The Lord hath both a temple here,
And righteous throne above,
Whence he surveys the sons of men,
And how their counsels move.

If God the righteous, whom he loves,
For trial does correct;
What must the sons of violence,
Whom he abhors, expect?

Snares, fire, and brimstone on their heads
Shall in one tempest show'r;
This dreadful mixture his revenge
Into their cup shall pour.

The righteous Lord will righteous deeds
With signal favour grace;
And to the upright man disclose
The brightness of his face.
