Psalmus 22 (23)

Language: Latin after the Hebrew (עברית)

1 [Psalmus David.] 
 Dominus regit me, et nihil mihi deerit:
2 in loco pascuæ, ibi me collocavit.
 Super aquam refectionis educavit me;
3 animam meam convertit.
 Deduxit me super semitas justitiæ
 propter nomen suum.
4 Nam etsi ambulavero in medio umbræ mortis,
 non timebo mala, quoniam tu mecum es.
 Virga tua, et baculus tuus,
 ipsa me consolata sunt.
5 Parasti in conspectu meo mensam
 adversus eos qui tribulant me;
 impinguasti in oleo caput meum:
 et calix meus inebrians, quam præclarus est!
6 Et misericordia tua subsequetur me
 omnibus diebus vitæ meæ;
 et ut inhabitem in domo Domini
 in longitudinem dierum.

Psaume 23

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Le Seigneur est mon berger, rien ne me manque,
il me fait paître sur une prairie verte,
et me conduit vers l'eau fraîche.
Il réconforte mon âme
il me conduit sur le juste chemin
pour l'amour de son nom.
Et si je marche dans un ravin sombre
je ne crains aucun malheur, car tu es près de moi,
ton bâton et ta baguette me réconfortent.
Tu apprêtes devant moi une table,
face à mes ennemis ;
Tu oins ma tête avec de l'huile
et tu me verses à boire ;
La bonté et la miséricorde me suivront tout au long de ma vie,
et j'habiterai dans la maison du Seigneur à jamais.
