Clementine Vulgate (Psalm 111)

Latin.png Latin text

1  Alleluia. Reversionis Aggei et Zacchariae. Beatus vir qui timet Dominum: in mandatis ejus volet nimis.
2  Potens in terra erit semen ejus; generatio rectorum benedicetur.
3  Gloria et divitiae in domo ejus: et justitia ejus manet in saeculum saeculi.
4  Exortum est in tenebris lumen rectis: misericors, et miserator, et justus.
5  Jucundus homo qui miseretur et commodat; disponet sermones suos in judicio:
6  quia in aeternum non commovebitur.
7  In memoria aeterna erit justus;
  ab auditione mala non timebit. Paratum cor ejus sperare in Domino,
8  confirmatum est cor ejus; non commovebitur donec despiciat inimicos suos.
9  Dispersit, dedit pauperibus; justitia ejus manet in saeculum saeculi: cornu ejus
exaltabitur in gloria.
10  Peccator videbit, et irascetur; dentibus suis fremet et tabescet:
desiderium peccatorum peribit.

1  Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: he hath great delight in his commandments.
2  His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the faithful shall be blessed.
3  Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4  Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness: he is merciful, loving, and righteous.
5  A good man is merciful, and lendeth: and will guide his words with discretion.
6  For he shall never be moved:
  and the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance.
7  He will not be afraid of any evil tidings: for his heart standeth fast, and believeth in the Lord.
8  His heart is established, and will not shrink: until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9  He hath dispersed abroad, and given to the poor: and his righteousness remaineth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10  The ungodly shall see it, and it shall grieve him: he shall gnash with his teeth, and consume away; the desire of the ungodly shall perish.

Luther Bibel 1545

1  Halleluja! Wohl dem, der den HERRN fürchtet, der große Lust hat zu seinen Geboten!
2  Des Same wird gewaltig sein auf Erden; das Geschlecht der Frommen wird gesegnet sein.
3  Reichtum und die Fülle wird in ihrem Hause sein, und ihre Gerechtigkeit bleibt ewiglich.
4  Den Frommen geht das Licht auf in der Finsternis von dem Gnädigen, Barmherzigen und Gerechten.
5  Wohl dem, der barmherzig ist und gerne leidet und richtet seine Sachen aus, daß er niemand Unrecht tue!
6  Denn er wird ewiglich bleiben; des Gerechten wird nimmermehr vergessen.
7  Wenn eine Plage kommen will, so fürchtet er sich nicht; sein Herz hofft unverzagt auf den HERRN.
8  Sein Herz ist getrost und fürchtet sich nicht, bis er seine Lust an seinen Feinden sieht.
9  Er streut aus und gibt den Armen; seine Gerechtigkeit bleibt ewiglich, sein Horn wird erhöht mit Ehren.
10  Der Gottlose wird's sehen, und es wird ihn verdrießen; seine Zähne wird er zusammenbeißen und vergehen. Denn was die Gottlosen gerne wollten, das ist verloren.

1  Heureux qui craint le Seigneur et se plaît grandement à ses préceptes.
2  Sa lignée sera puissante sur la terre et bénie la race des cœurs droits.
3  Opulence et bien-être en sa maison, Sa justice demeure à jamais.
4  Il se lève, lumière des cœurs droits, sensible, pitoyable et juste.
5  Heureux l'homme bon qui prend pitié et s'accommode : il conclut ses affaires en justice.
6  Le juste jamais ne chancelle, il est en mémoire éternelle.
7  Il ne craint pas l'annonce de malheurs, le cœur ferme il se fie au Seigneur.
8  Son cœur est assuré ; il ne craint pas : à la fin il toisera ses oppresseurs.
9  Il fait largesse, il donne au pauvre - sa justice demeure à jamais, son front s'élève en gloire.
10  L'impie le voit et s'irrite, il grince des dents et dépérit. Le désir des impies est néant.

1  Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2  His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3  Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4  Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5  A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6  Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7  He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.
8  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9  He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Alleluja! Aggeus és Zakariás visszatérésekor. Boldog férfiú, ki az Urat féli; az ő parancsolataiban igen nagy kedve telik.
Hatalmas lesz a földön ivadéka; az igazak nemzedéke megáldatik.
Dicsőség és gazdagság lesz házában; és az ő igazsága örökön örökké megmarad.
A sötétségben világosságot támaszt az igazaknak az irgalmas és könyörűlő és igaz.
Boldog ember, ki könyörűl és kölcsön ad, az ő beszédei megállnak az itéletben;
mert nem tántorodik meg mindörökké.
Örök emlékezetben lesz az igaz; nem fél gonosz hirhallástól. Szive kész az Úrban bízni,
szive megerősödött, rendűletlen, mig lenézheti ellenségeit.
Bőven ad a szegényeknek; igazsága megmarad örökön örökké, az ő szarva fölemelkedik dicsőséggel.
A gonosz látni fogja ezt, és haragra gyúl; agyarkodni fog, és eleped; a bűnösök kivánsága elenyészik.

Metrical 'New Version' (Tate/Brady)

That man is bless'd, who stands in awe
Of God, and loves his sacred law:
His seed on earth shall be renown'd,
And with successive honours crown'd.

His house, the seat of wealth, shall be
An inexhausted treasury;
His justice, free from all decay,
Shall blessings to his heirs convey.

The soul that's fill'd with virtue's light
Shines brightest in affliction's night:
To pity the distress'd inclin'd,
As well as just to all mankind.

His lib'ral favours he extends,
To some he gives, to others lends;
Yet what his charity impairs,
He saves by prudence in affairs.

Beset with threat'ning dangers round,
Unmov'd shall he maintain his ground;
The sweet remembrance of the just
Shall flourish when he sleeps in dust.

Ill tidings never can surprise
His heart, that fix'd on God relies:
On safety's rock he sits, and sees
The shipwreck of his enemies.

His hands, while they his alms bestow'd,
His glory's future harvest sow'd;
Whence he shall reap wealth, fame, renown,
A temp'ral and eternal crown.

The wicked shall his triumph see,
And gnash their teeth in agony:
While their unrighteous hopes decay,
And vanish with themselves away.

Metrical Paraphrase by Isaac Watts, 1719

PART 1 (88. 88. 88)
That man is blest who stands in awe
Of God, and loves his sacred law:
His seed on earth shall be renowned;
His house the seat of wealth shall be,
An inexhausted treasury,
And with successive honors crowned.

His liberal favors he extends,
To some he gives, to others lends;
A generous pity fills his mind:
Yet what his charity impairs,
He saves by prudence in affairs
And thus he's just to all mankind.

His hands, while they his alms bestowed,
His glory's future harvest sowed;
The sweet remembrance of the just,
Like a green root, revives and bears
A train of blessings for his heirs,
When dying nature sleeps in dust.

Beset with threatening dangers round,
Unmoved shall he maintain his ground;
His conscience holds his courage up:
The soul that's filled with virtue's light,
Shines brightest in affliction's night,
And sees in darkness beams of hope.

Ill tidings never can surprise
His heart that fixed on God relies,
Though waves and tempests roar around:
Safe on the rock he sits, and sees
The shipwreck of his enemies,
And all their hope and glory drowned.

The wicked shall his triumph see,
And gnash their teeth in agony,
To find their expectations crossed;
They and their envy, pride, and spite,
Sink down to everlasting night,
And all their names in darkness lost.

 



PART 2 (L. M.)
Thrice happy man who fears the Lord,
Loves his commands, and trusts his word;
Honor and peace his days attend,
And blessings to his seed descend.

Compassion dwells upon his mind,
To works of mercy still inclined;
He lends the poor some present aid,
Or gives them, not to be repaid.

When times grow dark, and tidings spread
That fill his neighbors round with dread,
His heart is armed against the fear,
For God with all his power is there.

His soul, well fixed upon the Lord,
Draws heavenly courage from his word;
Amidst the darkness light shall rise,
To cheer his heart and bless his eyes.

He hath dispersed his alms abroad;
His works are still before his God;
His name on earth shall long remain,
While envious sinners fret in vain.

Metrical Paraphrase by William Kethe, 1561

1. The man is blest that God doth fear,
And that His laws do love indeed.
His seed on earth God will uprear,
And bless such as from him proceed.
His house with good He will fulfill,
His righteousness endure shall still.

2. Unto the righteous doth arise,
In troubles joy, in darkness light:
Compassion always in his eyes,
And mercy always in his sight:
Yea, pity moveth such to lend,
He doth by judgment things expend.

3. And surely such shall never fail,
For in remembrance had is he:
No tidings ill can make him quail,
Who in the Lord sure hope doth see:
His heart is firm, his fear is past,
For he shall see his foes down cast.

4. He did well for the poor provide,
His righteousness shall still remain:
And his estate with praise abide,
Though that the wicked man disdain:
Yea, gnash his teeth thereat shall he.
And so consume his state to see.
