Text and translations

In die tribulationis meae renuit consolari anima mea;
Et anticipaverunt vigilias oculi mei prae lachrymis; turbatus sum, et non sum locutus.
Et meditatus sum nocte cum corde meo: et exercitabar, et scopebam spiritum meum.
Haec omnia initia fuerunt dolorum meorum.

3  When I was in distress…my soul refused to be comforted.
5  I could not sleep at night for weeping; I was too troubled to speak.
7  And I meditated in the night with my own heart: and I was exercised, and examined my spirit.
Matt.28:8  All these things were the beginning of my sorrows.
