Many a time have they fought against me from my youth up *
may Israel now say.
Yea, many a time have they vexed me from my youth up *
but they have not prevailed against me.
The plowers plowed upon my back *
and made long furrows.
But the righteous Lord *
hath hewn the snares of the ungodly in pieces.
Let them be confounded and turned backward *
as many as have evil will at Sion.
Let them be even as the grass growing upon the house-tops *
which withereth afore it be plucked up;
Whereof the mower filleth not his hand *
neither he that bindeth up the sheaves his bosom.
So that they who go by say not so much as, The Lord prosper you *
we wish you good luck in the Name of the Lord.
Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord *
Lord, hear my voice.
O let thine ears consider well *
the voice of my complaint.
If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss *
O Lord, who may abide it?
For there is mercy with thee *
therefore shalt thou be feared.
I look for the Lord; my soul doth wait for him *
in his word is my trust.
My soul fleeth unto the Lord *
before the morning watch, I say, before the morning watch.
O Israel, trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy *
and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel *
from all his sins.
Domine, non est
Lord, I am not high-minded *
I have no proud looks.
I do not exercise myself in great matters *
which are too high for me.
But I refrain my soul, and keep it low, like as a child that is weaned from his mother *
yea, my soul is even as a weaned child.
O Israel, trust in the Lord *
from this time forth for evermore.
