Clementine Vulgate (Psalm 32)

Latin.png Latin text

1  Psalmus David. Exsultate, justi, in Domino; rectos decet collaudatio.
2  Confitemini Domino in cithara; in psalterio decem chordarum psallite illi.
3  Cantate ei canticum novum; bene psallite ei in vociferatione.
4  Quia rectum est verbum Domini, et omnia opera ejus in fide.
5  Diligit misericordiam et judicium; misericordia Domini plena est terra.
6  Verbo Domini caeli firmati sunt, et spiritu oris ejus omnis virtus eorum.
7  Congregans sicut in utre aquas maris;

ponens in thesauris abyssos.
8  Timeat Dominum omnis terra; ab eo autem commoveantur omnes inhabitantes orbem.
9  Quoniam ipse dixit, et facta sunt; ipse mandavit et creata sunt.
10  Dominus dissipat consilia gentium;

reprobat autem cogitationes populorum, et reprobat consilia principum.
11  Consilium autem Domini in aeternum manet; cogitationes cordis ejus in generatione et generationem.
12  Beata gens cujus est Dominus Deus ejus; populus quem

elegit in haereditatem sibi.
13  De caelo respexit Dominus; vidit omnes filios hominum.
14  De praeparato habitaculo suo respexit super omnes qui habitant terram:
15  qui finxit sigillatim corda eorum; qui intelligit omnia opera eorum.
16  Non salvatur rex per multam virtutem, et gigas non salvabitur

in multitudine virtutis suae.
17  Fallax equus ad salutem;

in abundantia autem virtutis suae non salvabitur.
18  Ecce oculi Domini super metuentes eum, et in eis qui sperant super misericordia ejus:
19  ut eruat a morte animas eorum, et alat eos in fame.
20  Anima nostra sustinet Dominum, quoniam adjutor et protector noster est.
21  Quia in eo laetabitur cor nostrum, et in nomine sancto ejus speravimus.
22  Fiat misericordia tua, Domine, super nos, quemadmodum speravimus in te.

1  Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for it becometh well the just to be thankful.
2  Praise the Lord with harp: sing praises unto him with the lute, and instrument of ten strings.
3  Sing unto the Lord a new song: sing praises lustily unto him with a good courage.
4  For the word of the Lord is true: and all his works are faithful.
5  He loveth righteousness and judgement: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
6  By the word of the Lord were the heavens made: and all the hosts of them by the breath of his mouth.
7  He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as it were upon an heap:

and layeth up the deep, as in a treasure-house.
8  Let all the earth fear the Lord: stand in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the world.
9  For he spake, and it was done: he commanded, and it stood fast.
10  The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought:

and maketh the devices of the people to be of none effect, and casteth out the counsels of princes.
11  The counsel of the Lord shall endure for ever: and the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation.
12  Blessed are the people, whose God is the Lord Jehovah: and blessed are the folk, that

he hath chosen to him to be his inheritance.
13  The Lord looked down from heaven, and beheld all the children of men:
  from the habitation of his dwelling he considereth all them that dwell on the earth.
14  He fashioneth all the hearts of them: and understandeth all their works.
15  There is no king that can be saved by the multitude of an host: neither is any mighty man delivered

by much strength.
16  A horse is counted but a vain thing to save a man:

neither shall he deliver any man by his great strength.
17  Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him: and upon them that put their trust in his mercy;
18  To deliver their soul from death: and to feed them in the time of dearth.
19  Our soul hath patiently tarried for the Lord: for he is our help and our shield.
20  For our heart shall rejoice in him: because we have hoped in his holy Name.
21  Let thy merciful kindness, O Lord, be upon us: like as we do put our trust in thee.

1  Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
2  Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
3  Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
4  For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.
5  He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
6  By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
7  He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
8  Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9  For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
10  The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
11  The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
12  Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
13  The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
14  From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
15  He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
16  There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
17  An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
18  Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
19  To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
20  Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.
21  For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
22  Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

Káldi fordítás (32. zsoltár)

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Dávid zsoltára.
Örvendjetek igazak az Úrban! jámborokhoz illik a dicséret.
Dicsérjétek az Urat czitarával; zengjetek neki tizhúrú hárfákon.
Énekeljetek neki új éneket; jól énekeljetek neki örömkiáltással.
Mert az Úr igéje igaz, és minden cselekedete hűség.
Szereti az irgalmasságot és itéletet; az Úr irgalmával tele a föld.
Az Úr igéje által erősíttettek meg az egek; és szája lélekzete által azok minden ereje.
Mintegy tömlőbe összegyűjti a tenger vizeit; tárakba teszi a vizmélységeket.
Félje az Urat az egész föld; sőt remegjen tőle e világ minden lakója.
Mert ő szólt, és lettek; ő parancsolt, és létrejöttek.
Az Úr fölforgatja a pogányok tanácsait, elveti a népek gondolatait, és elveti a fejedelmek tanácsait.
Az Úr tanácsa pedig örökké megmarad; az ő szive gondolatai nemzedékről nemzedékre.
Boldog nemzet, melynek Istene az Úr; a nép, melyet magának örökségűl választott.
Mennyből letekint az Úr; és látja mind az emberek fiait.
Elkészített lakhelyéből letekint mindazokra, kik a földet lakják.
Ő, ki egyenkint alkotta azok sziveit, és ki átlátja minden cselekedetöket.
Nem szabadúl meg a király nagy erő által, és az óriás nem szabadúl meg ereje nagyságában.
Csalárd a ló a szabadításra; ereje bőségében sem ment meg.
Ime az Úr szemei az őt félőkön; és azokon, kik az ő irgalmában bíznak,
hogy a haláltól megmentse lelkeiket, és táplálja őket az éhségben.
A mi lelkünk az Urat várja; mert ő segítőnk és oltalmazónk.
Mert szivünk benne örvend, és az ő szent nevében bízunk.
Legyen rajtunk, Uram! a te irgalmad, a mint tebenned bízunk.

Metrical paraphrase by John Hopkins, Old Version

English.png English text

Ye righteous in the Lord rejoice,
It is a seemly sight,
That upright men with thankful voice,
Should praise the God of might.
Praise ye the Lord with harp and song,
In psalms and pleasant things;
With lute and instruments among
That soundeth on ten strings.

Sing to the Lord a song most new,
With courage give him praise:
For why ? His word is ever true,
His works and all his ways.
To judgment, equity, and right,
He hath a great good will:
And with his gifts he doth delight
The earth throughout to fill.

For by the word of God alone
The heavens all were wrought:
Their hosts and powers every one,
His breath to pass hath brought.
The waters great gathered hath he
On heaps within the shore:
And hid them in the depth to be,
As in an house of store.

All men of earth, both least and most,
Fear God and keep his law;
Ye that inhabit in each coast,
Dread him and stand in awe.
What he commanded wrought it was,
At once with present speed:
What he doth will is brought to pass
With full effect indeed.

 

The counsels of the nations rude,
The Lord doth bring to naught:
He doth defeat the multitude
Of their device and thought.
But his decrees continue still,
They never slack nor swage:
The motions of his mind and will
Take place in every age.

The Second Part
Blessed are they to whom the Lord,
As God and guide is known:
Whom he doth choose of mere accord,
To take them as his own.
The Lord from heaven cast his sight
On men mortal by birth:
Beholding from his seat of might
The dwellers of the earth.

The Lord, I say, whose hand hath wrought
Man's heart, and doth it frame:
For he alone doth know the thought
And working of the same.
A king that trusteth in his host,
Shall naught prevail at length:
The man that of his might doth boast,
Shall fail for all his strength.

The troops of horsemen all shall fail,
Their sturdy steeds shall swerve:
The strength of horse shall not prevail
The rider to preserve.
But, see the eyes of God attend
And watch to aid the just:
With such as fear him to offend,
And on his goodness trust.

 

That he of death and great distress
May set their souls from dread:
And if that dearth the land oppress,
In hunger them to feed.
Wherefore our soul doth whole depend
On God our strength and stay:
He is our shield us to defend,
And drive all darts away.

Our soul in God hath joy and gain,
Rejoicing in his might:
For why? In his most holy name
We hope and much delight.
Therefore let thy goodness, O Lord,
Still present with us be,
As we always with one accord
Do only trust in thee.

From 1574 Edition

English metrical New Version (Tate/Brady)

English.png English text

First Part
1  Let all the just to God with joy
Their cheerful voices raise,
For well the righteous it becomes
To sing glad songs of praise.

2,3  Let harps, and psalteries, and lutes
In joyful concert meet,
And new-made songs of loud applause
The harmony complete.

4,5  For faithful is the word of God,
His works with truth abound;
He justice loves, and all the earth
Is with his goodness crown'd.

6  By his Almighty word at first
The heavenly arch was rear'd,
And all the beauteous hosts of light
At this command appear'd.

7  The swelling floods, together rolled,
He makes in heaps to lie;
And lays, as in a storehouse, safe,
The wat'ry treasures by.

8,9  Let earth and all that dwell therein
Before him trembling stand;
For when he spake the world 'twas made,
'Twas fix'd at his command.

10  He, when the heathen closely plot,
Their counsels undermines,
His wisdom ineffectual makes
The people's rash designs.

11  Whate'er the mighty Lord decrees
Shall stand for ever sure;
The settled purpose of his heart
To ages shall endure.

Metrical paraphrase by Isaac Watts - First part, Common Meter

English.png English text

1  Rejoice, ye righteous, in the Lord,
This work belongs to you:
Sing of his name, his ways, his word,
How holy, just and true.

2  His mercy and his righteousness
Let heav'n and earth proclaim:
His works of nature and of grace
Reveal his wondrous name.

3  His wisdom and almighty word
The heav'nly arches spread,
And by the Spirit of the Lord
Their shining hosts were made.

4  He bid the liquid waters flow,
To their appointed deep;
The flowing seas their limits know
And their own station keep.

5  Ye tenants of the spacious earth,
With fear before him stand;
He spake, and nature took its birth,
And rests on his command.

6  He scorns the angry nations' rage,
And breaks their vain designs;
His counsel stands through every age,
And in full glory shines.

Metrical paraphrase by Isaac Watts - Second part, Common Meter

English.png English text

1  Blest is the nation where the Lord
Hath fix'd his gracious throne;
Where he reveals his heav'nly word,
And calls their tribes his own.

2  His eye, with infinite survey,
Does the whole world behold;
He form'd us all of equal clay,
And knows our feeble mould.

3  Kings are not rescu'd by the force
Of armies from the grave;
Nor speed nor courage of an horse
Can the bold rider save.

4  Vain is the strength of beasts or men,
To hope for safety thence;
But holy souls from God obtain
A strong and sure defence.

5  God is their fear, and God their trust,
When plagues or famine spread,
His watchful eye secures the just
Among ten thousand dead.

6  Lord, let our hearts in thee rejoice,
And bless us from thy throne;
For we have made thy word our choice,
And trust thy grace alone.

Metrical paraphrase by Isaac Watts - First part, 888.888

English.png English text

1  Ye holy souls, in God rejoice,
Your Maker's praise becomes your voice;
Great is your theme, your songs be new:
Sing of his name, his word, his ways,
His works of nature and of grace,
How wise and holy, just and true!

2  Justice and truth he ever loves,
And the whole earth his goodness proves,
His word the heav'nly arches spread:
How wide they shine from north to south!
And by the spirit of his mouth
Were all the starry armies made.

3  He gathers the wide-flowing seas
(Those wat'ry treasures know their place)
In the vast storehouse of the deep:
He spake, and gave all nature birth;
And fires, and seas, and heav'n, and earth,
His everlasting orders keep.

4  Let mortals tremble and adore
A God of such resistless power,
Nor dare indulge their feeble rage:
Vain are your thoughts, and weak your hands;
But his eternal counsel stands,
And rules the world from age to age.

Metrical paraphrase by Isaac Watts - Second part, 888.888

English.png English text

1  O happy nation, where the Lord
Reveals the treasure of his word,
And builds his church, his earthly throne!
His eye the heathen world surveys,
He formed their hearts, he knows their ways;
But God their Maker is unknown.

2  Let kings rely upon their host,
And of his strength the champion boast;
In vain they boast, in vain rely;
In vain we trust the brutal force,
Or speed, or courage, of a horse,
To guard his rider or to fly.

3  The eye of thy compassion, Lord,
Doth more secure defence afford
When death or dangers threat'ning stand:
Thy watchful eye preserves the just,
Who make thy name their fear and trust,
When wars or famine waste the land.

4  In sickness, or the bloody field,
Thou our physician, thou our shield,
Send us salvation from thy throne:
We wait to see thy goodness shine;
Let us rejoice in help divine,
For all our hope is God alone.
