Lectio Quarta

Language: Latin

Responde mihi: quantas habeo iniquitates et peccata,
scelera mea atque delicta ostende mihi.
Cur faciem tuam abscondis, et arbitraris me inimicum tuum?
Contra folium, quod vento rapitur, ostendis potentiam tuam,
et stipulam siccam persequeris.
Scribis enim contra me amaritudines,
et consumere me vis peccatis adolescentiae meae.
Posuisti in nervo pedem meum, et observasti omnes semitas meas,
et vestigia pedum meorum considerasti:
qui quasi putrendo consumendus sum,
et quasi vestimentum, quod comeditur a tinea.
