Deus, in adjutorium
Hasten, O God, to deliver me; *
make haste to help me, O Lord.
Let them be ashamed and confounded who seek after my life; *
let them be turned back and put to confusion who wish me evil.
Let them be soon brought to shame *
who cry over me, “Aha! Aha!”
But let all those who seek you be joyful and glad in you; *
and let all who delight in your salvation say always, “The Lord be praised.”
As for me, I am poor and in misery; *
hasten to me, O God.
You are my helper and my deliverer; *
O Lord, do not tarry.
Give the King your judgments, O God, *
and your righteousness to the King’s son.
Then shall he judge your people with righteousness *
and defend the poor with justice.
The mountains also shall bring peace, *
and the little hills righteousness to the people.
He shall vindicate the poor among the people, *
defend the children of the poor, and punish the wrongdoer.
They shall fear you as long as the sun and moon endure, *
from one generation to another.
He shall come down like the rain upon the mown grass, *
even as showers that water the earth.
In his time shall the righteous flourish, *
even an abundance of peace, so long as the moon endures.
His dominion shall be also from one sea to the other, *
and from the river unto the world’s end.
Those who dwell in the wilderness shall kneel before him; *
his enemies shall lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall give presents; *
the kings of Arabia and Seba shall bring gifts.
All kings shall fall down before him; *
all nations shall do him service.
For he shall deliver the poor when he cries, *
the needy also, and the one that has no helper.
He shall be favorable to the lowly and needy, *
and shall preserve the lives of the poor.
He shall deliver them from falsehood and wrong, *
and dear shall their blood be in his sight.
Long may he live! And unto him shall be given the gold of Arabia; *
prayer shall ever be made unto him, and daily shall he be blessed.
There shall be an abundance of grain on the earth, thick upon the hilltops; *
its fruit shall flourish like Lebanon, its grain like the grass upon the earth.
His Name shall endure for ever; his Name shall remain as long as the sun. *
All the nations shall be blessed through him and shall call him blessed.
Blessed be the Lord God, even the God of Israel, *
who alone does wondrous things;
And blessed be the Name of his majesty for ever; *
and all the earth shall be filled with his majesty. Amen, Amen.
