Available translation(s): DUT FRE
1 [Canticum graduum.]
  Beati omnes qui timent Dominum,
  qui ambulant in viis ejus.
2 Labores manuum tuarum quia manducabis: 
  beatus es, et bene tibi erit.
3 Uxor tua sicut vitis abundans in lateribus domus tuæ;
  filii tui sicut novellæ olivarum in circuitu mensæ tuæ.
4 Ecce sic benedicetur homo qui timet Dominum.
5 Benedicat tibi Dominus ex Sion,
  et videas bona Jerusalem omnibus diebus vitæ tuæ.
6 Et videas filios filiorum tuorum: pacem super Israël.

F. Mendelssohn sets line 1

Heureux tous ceux qui craignent le...
Language: French (Français)  after the Latin 
Heureux tous ceux qui craignent le Seigneur,
ceux qui marchent dans ses voies.
Du travail de tes mains tu mangeras : tu es heureux et  tout sera bien pour toi.
Ton épouse sera comme une vigne abondante à l'intérieur de ta maison ;
tes fils comme de nouveaux oliviers autour de ta table.
Voici comment sera béni l'homme qui craint le Seigneur.
Le Seigneur te bénit depuis Sion,
et que tu voies les biens de Jérusalem tous les jours de ta vie.
Et que tu voies les fils des tiens : paix sur Israël.
