Domine, quid multiplicati sunt qui tribulant me?
Multi insurgunt adversum me.
Multi dicunt animæ meæ:
Non est salus ipsi in Deo ejus.
Tu autem Domine, susceptor meus es,
gloria mea, et exaltans caput meum.
Voce mea ad Dominum clamavi
et exaudivit me de monte sancto suo.

English.png English translation

Lord, why do those who persecute me proliferate?
Many have risen against me.
Many tell my soul:
"There is no salvation for him in his God".
Yet you, Lord, are my protector,
my glory, you lift my head up.
My voice called to the Lord
ad he listened from his holy mountain.

Translation by Campelli

Seigneur, pourquoi ceux qui me persécutent se sont-ils multipliés ?
Ils sont nombreux ceux qui s'élèvent contre moi.
Beaucoup disent à mon âme:
Il n'y a pas de salut pour elle dans son Dieu.
Mais toi, Seigneur, tu es mon protecteur,
ma gloire, et tu relèves ma tête.
De ma voix j'ai crié vers le Seigneur
et Il m'a exaucé du haut de sa montagne sainte.
