Psalmus 35 (36)
Language: Latin 
1  [In finem. Servo Domini ipsi David.]
2  Dixit injustus ut delinquat in semetipso:
   non est timor Dei ante oculos ejus.
3  Quoniam dolose egit in conspectu ejus,
   ut inveniatur iniquitas ejus ad odium.
4  Verba oris ejus iniquitas, et dolus;
   noluit intelligere ut bene ageret.
5  Iniquitatem meditatus est in cubili suo;
   astitit omni viæ non bonæ:
   malitiam autem non odivit.
6  Domine, in cælo misericordia tua,
   et veritas tua usque ad nubes.
7  Justitia tua sicut montes Dei;
   judicia tua abyssus multa.
   Homines et jumenta salvabis, Domine,
8  quemadmodum multiplicasti misericordiam tuam, Deus.
   Filii autem hominum in tegmine alarum tuarum sperabunt.
9  Inebriabuntur ab ubertate domus tuæ,
   et torrente voluptatis tuæ potabis eos:
10 quoniam apud te est fons vitæ,
   et in lumine tuo videbimus lumen.
11 Prætende misericordiam tuam scientibus te,
   et justitiam tuam his qui recto sunt corde.
12 Non veniat mihi pes superbiæ,
   et manus peccatoris non moveat me.
13 Ibi ceciderunt qui operantur iniquitatem;
   expulsi sunt, nec potuerunt stare.

Psalm 35 (36)
Language: English  after the Latin 
1  [Unto the end, for the servant of God, David himself.]
2  The unjust hath said within himself, that he would sin: 
   there is no fear of God before his eyes.
3  For in his sight he hath done deceitfully, 
   that his iniquity may be found unto hatred.
4  The words of his mouth are iniquity and guile: 
   he would not understand that he might do well.
5  He hath devised iniquity on his bed, 
   he hath set himself on every way that is not good: 
   but evil he hath not hated.
6  O Lord, thy mercy is in heaven, 
   and thy truth reacheth, even to the clouds.
7  Thy justice is as the mountains of God, 
   thy judgments are a great deep. 
   Men and beasts thou wilt preserve, O Lord :
8  O how hast thou multiplied thy mercy, O God! But the children of men 
   shall put their trust under the covert of thy wings.
9  They shall be inebriated with the plenty of thy house; 
   and thou shalt make them drink of the torrent of thy pleasure.
10 For with thee is the fountain of life; 
   and in thy light we shall see light.
11 Extend thy mercy to them that know thee, 
   and thy justice to them that are right in heart.
12 Let not the foot of pride come to me, 
   and let not the hand of the sinner move me.
13 There the workers of iniquity are fallen, 
   they are cast out, and could not stand.
