1  [Psalmus David, quando persequebatur eum Absalom filius ejus.]
   Domine, exaudi orationem meam;
   auribus percipe obsecrationem meam in veritate tua;
   exaudi me in tua justitia.
2  Et non intres in judicium cum servo tuo,
   quia non justificabitur in conspectu tuo omnis vivens.
3  Quia persecutus est inimicus animam meam;
   humiliavit in terra vitam meam;
   collocavit me in obscuris, sicut mortuos sæculi.
4  Et anxiatus est super me spiritus meus;
   in me turbatum est cor meum.
5  Memor fui dierum antiquorum;
   meditatus sum in omnibus operibus tuis:
   in factis manuum tuarum meditabar.
6  Expandi manus meas ad te;
   anima mea sicut terra sine aqua tibi.
7  Velociter exaudi me, Domine;
   defecit spiritus meus.
   Non avertas faciem tuam a me,
   et similis ero descendentibus in lacum.
8  Auditam fac mihi mane misericordiam tuam,
   quia in te speravi.
   Notam fac mihi viam in qua ambulem,
   quia ad te levavi animam meam.
9  Eripe me de inimicis meis, Domine:
   ad te confugi.
10 Doce me facere voluntatem tuam,
   quia Deus meus es tu.
   Spiritus tuus bonus deducet me in terram rectam.
11 Propter nomen tuum, Domine, vivificabis me:
   in æquitate tua, educes de tribulatione animam meam,
12 et in misericordia tua disperdes inimicos meos,
   et perdes omnes qui tribulant animam meam,
   quoniam ego servus tuus sum.
