THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

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

130:1¤ Out of the depths I have cried to thee, O Lord:

130:2Lord, hear my voice. Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.

130:3If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall stand it.

130:4For with thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of thy law, I have waited for thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on his word:

130:5my soul hath hoped in the Lord.

130:6From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.

130:7Because with the Lord there is mercy: and with him plentiful redemption.

130:8And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

131:1¤ Lord, my heart is not exalted: nor are my eyes lofty. Neither have I walked in great matters, nor in wonderful things above me.

131:2If I was not humbly minded, but exalted my soul: As a child that is weaned is towards his mother, so reward in my soul.

131:3Let Israel hope in the Lord, from henceforth now and for ever.

132:1¤ O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness.

132:2How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob:

132:3If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie:

132:4If I shall give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids,

132:5Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.

132:6Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood.

132:7We will go into his tabernacle: we will adore in the place where his feet stood.

132:8Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified.

132:9Let thy priests be clothed with justice: and let thy saints rejoice.

132:10For thy servant David's sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed.

132:11The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy throne.

132:12If thy children will keep my covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them: Their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne.

132:13For the Lord hath chosen Sion: he hath chosen it for his dwelling.

132:14This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it.

132:15Blessing I will bless her widow: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

132:16I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy.

132:17There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.

132:18His enemies I will clothe with confusion: but upon him shall my sanctification flourish.
