Laus cantici David

Language: Latin

1  [Laus cantici David.] 
   Qui habitat in adjutorio Altissimi,
   in protectione Dei cæli commorabitur.
2  Dicet Domino: Susceptor meus es tu, et refugium meum;
   Deus meus, sperabo in eum.
3  Quoniam ipse liberavit me de laqueo venantium,
   et a verbo aspero.
4  Scapulis suis obumbrabit tibi,
   et sub pennis ejus sperabis.
5  Scuto circumdabit te veritas ejus:
   non timebis a timore nocturno;
6  a sagitta volante in die,
   a negotio perambulante in tenebris,
   ab incursu, et dæmonio meridiano.
7  Cadent a latere tuo mille, 
   et decem millia a dextris tuis;
   ad te autem non appropinquabit.
8  Verumtamen oculis tuis considerabis,
   et retributionem peccatorum videbis.
9  Quoniam tu es, Domine, spes mea;
   Altissimum posuisti refugium tuum.
10 Non accedet ad te malum,
   et flagellum non appropinquabit tabernaculo tuo.
11 Quoniam angelis suis mandavit de te,
   ut custodiant te in omnibus viis tuis.
12 In manibus portabunt te,
   ne forte offendas ad lapidem pedem tuum.
13 Super aspidem et basiliscum ambulabis,
   et conculcabis leonem et draconem.
14 Quoniam in me speravit, liberabo eum;
   protegam eum, quoniam cognovit nomen meum.
15 Clamabit ad me, et ego exaudiam eum;
   cum ipso sum in tribulatione:
   eripiam eum, et glorificabo eum.
16 Longitudine dierum replebo eum,
   et ostendam illi salutare meum.

He that dwelleth in the secret place

Language: English after the Latin

1  He that dwelleth in the secret place 
   of the most High shall abide 
   under the shadow of the Almighty.
2  I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: 
   my God; in him will I trust.
3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,
   and from the noisome pestilence.
4  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings 
   shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5  Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; 
   nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6  Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; 
   nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, 
   and ten thousand at thy right hand; 
   but it shall not come nigh thee.
8  Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold 
   and see the reward of the wicked.
9  Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, 
   even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, 
   neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, 
   to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands,
   lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: 
   the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:
   I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
   I will be with him in trouble;
   I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, 
   and shew him my salvation.
