THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Book of Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Eman, Ethan, sons of Core, compiled by Esdras)

13:1¤ How long, O Lord, wilt thou forget me unto the end? how long dost thou turn away thy face from me?

13:2How long shall I take counsels in my soul, sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over Me?

13:3Consider, and hear me, O Lord, my God. Enlighten my eyes, that I never sleep in death:

13:4Lest at any time my enemy say: I have prevailed against him. They that trouble me, will rejoice when I am moved:

13:5But I have trusted in thy mercy. My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation:

13:6I will sing to the Lord, who giveth me good things: yea, I will sing to the name of the Lord, the most high.

14:1¤ The fool hath said in his heart: There is no God. They are corrupt, and are become abominable in their ways: there is none that doth good, no not one.

14:2The Lord hath looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there be any that understand and seek God.

14:3They are all gone aside, they are become unprofitable together: there is none that doth good: no not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they acted deceitfully: the poison of asps is under their lips. Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood. Destruction and unhappiness in their ways; and the way of peace they have not known: there is no fear of God before their eyes.

14:4Shall not all they know that work iniquity, who devour my people as they eat bread?

14:5They have not called upon the Lord: there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear.

14:6For the Lord is in the just generation: you have confounded the counsel of the poor man; but the Lord is his hope.

14:7Who shall give out of Sion the salvation of Israel? when the Lord shall have turned away the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

15:1¤ Lord, who shall dwell in thy tabernacle? or who shall rest in thy holy hill?

15:2He that walketh without blemish, and worketh justice:

15:3He that speaketh truth in his heart, who hath not used deceit in his tongue: Nor hath done evil to his neighbour: nor taken up a reproach against his neighbours.

15:4In his sight the malignant is brought to nothing: but he glorifieth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his neighbour, and deceiveth not;

15:5He that hath not put out his money to usury, nortaken bribes against the innocent: He that doth these things, shall not be moved for ever.
