Latin.png Latin text

Quam multi, Domine, sunt qui infestant me.
Multi insurgunt adversum me,
multi dicunt animae meae,
non est certa illi salus in Deo.

At tu, Domine, clipeus es super me,
presens ad tuendum me, gloria mea.
Et extollens caput meum voce mea
ad Dominum clamavi, et exaudivit me
de monte sanctitatis suae.

Ego jacui et dormivi;
surrexi quoniam Dominus suffulciit me.
Exsurge, Domine.

Serva me, Deus mi,
quia percussisti omnes inimicos meos maxilla,
dentes improborumm confregisti;
Domini est illa salus et super populum tuum,
et super populum tuum benedictio tua.

Immortali Deo gloria, Patri et Filio,
et Spiritui Sancto, sicut erat in principio
et nunc et in omne aevum.
Amen.
