Psalm 107 (108)
Language: Hebrew (עברית) 
א   שִׁיר מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד.
ב   נָכוֹן לִבִּי אֱלֹהִים; אָשִׁירָה וַאֲזַמְּרָה,
   אַף-כְּבוֹדִי.
ג   עוּרָה, הַנֵּבֶל וְכִנּוֹר; אָעִירָה שָּׁחַר.
ד   אוֹדְךָ בָעַמִּים יְהוָה;
   וַאֲזַמֶּרְךָ, בַּלְאֻמִּים.
ה   כִּי-גָדוֹל מֵעַל-שָׁמַיִם חַסְדֶּךָ;    וְעַד-שְׁחָקִים אֲמִתֶּךָ.
ו   רוּמָה עַל-שָׁמַיִם אֱלֹהִים;
   וְעַל כָּל-הָאָרֶץ כְּבוֹדֶךָ.
ז   לְמַעַן, יֵחָלְצוּן יְדִידֶיךָ; הוֹשִׁיעָה יְמִינְךָ וַעֲנֵנִי.
ח   אֱלֹהִים, דִּבֶּר בְּקָדְשׁוֹ--אֶעְלֹזָה: אֲחַלְּקָה שְׁכֶם; וְעֵמֶק סֻכּוֹת אֲמַדֵּד.
ט   לִי גִלְעָד, לִי מְנַשֶּׁה, וְאֶפְרַיִם, מָעוֹז רֹאשִׁי; יְהוּדָה, מְחֹקְקִי.
י   מוֹאָב, סִיר רַחְצִי--עַל-אֱדוֹם, אַשְׁלִיךְ נַעֲלִי; עֲלֵי-פְלֶשֶׁת, אֶתְרוֹעָע.
יא   מִי יֹבִלֵנִי, עִיר מִבְצָר; מִי נָחַנִי עַד-אֱדוֹם.
יב   הֲלֹא-אֱלֹהִים זְנַחְתָּנוּ; וְלֹא-תֵצֵא אֱלֹהִים, בְּצִבְאֹתֵינוּ.
יג   הָבָה-לָּנוּ עֶזְרָת מִצָּר; וְשָׁוְא, תְּשׁוּעַת אָדָם.
יב   הֲלֹא-אֱלֹהִים זְנַחְתָּנוּ; וְלֹא-תֵצֵא אֱלֹהִים, בְּצִבְאֹתֵינוּ.
יג   הָבָה-לָּנוּ עֶזְרָת מִצָּר; וְשָׁוְא, תְּשׁוּעַת אָדָם.
יד   בֵּאלֹהִים נַעֲשֶׂה-חָיִל; וְהוּא, יָבוּס צָרֵינוּ.

Canticum Psalmi, ipsi David
Language: Latin  after the Hebrew (עברית) 
1  [Canticum Psalmi, ipsi David.]
2  [Paratum cor meum, Deus, paratum cor meum;
   cantabo, et psallam in gloria mea.
3  Exsurge, gloria mea; exsurge, psalterium et cithara;
   exsurgam diluculo.
4  Confitebor tibi in populis, Domine,
   et psallam tibi in nationibus]1:
5  quia magna est super cælos misericordia tua,
   et usque ad nubes veritas tua.
6  Exaltare super cælos, Deus,
   et super omnem terram gloria tua:
7  ut liberentur dilecti tui.
   Salvum fac dextera tua, et exaudi me.
8  Deus locutus est in sancto suo:
   Exsultabo, et dividam Sichimam;
   et convallem tabernaculorum dimetiar.
9  Meus est Galaad, et meus est Manasses,
   et Ephraim susceptio capitis mei.
   Juda rex meus;
10 Moab lebes spei meæ:
   in Idumæam extendam calceamentum meum;
   mihi alienigenæ amici facti sunt.
11 Quis deducet me in civitatem munitam?
   quis deducet me usque in Idumæam?
12 nonne tu, Deus, qui repulisti nos?
   et non exibis, Deus, in virtutibus nostris?
13 Da nobis auxilium de tribulatione,
   quia vana salus hominis.
14 In Deo faciemus virtutem;
   et ipse ad nihilum deducet inimicos nostros.
