A sixth of the way there. If I’d started at the beginning of Lent I may have finished the whole thing. As it is, I think it’s time for a break after this one.
“Judica me, Domine” (Psalm 25)
1 In finem. Psalmus David. Judica me, Domine, quoniam ego in innocentia mea ingressus sum, et in Domino sperans non infirmabor.
Unto the end. A Psalm of David. Judge me, O Lord, for I in my innocence have I entered, and hoping in the Lord I shall not be infirm.
2 Proba me, Domine, et tenta me; ure renes meos et cor meum.
Test me, O Lord, and try me; burn my kidneys and my heart.
3 Quoniam misericordia tua ante oculos meos est, et complacui in veritate tua.
For Thy mercy is before my eyes, and I have been pleased in Thy truth.
4 Non sedi cum concilio vanitatis, et cum iniqua gerentibus non introibo.
I have not sat with the council of vanity, and with those waging iniquities I will not enter.
5 Odivi ecclesiam malignantium, et cum impiis non sedebo.
I have hated the assembly of the malignant, and with the impious I will not sit.
6 Lavabo inter innocentes manus meas, et circumdabo altare tuum, Domine;
I will wash among the innocent my hands, and I will surround Thy altar, O Lord;
7 ut audiam vocem laudis, et enarrem universa mirabilia tua.
that I may hear the voice of praise, and tell forth all Thy marvels.
8 Domine, dilexi decorem domus tuae, et locum habitationis gloriae tuae.
O Lord, I have loved the ornament of Thy house, and the place of dwelling of Thy glory.
9 Ne perdas cum impiis, Deus, animam meam, et cum viris sanguinum vitam meam;
May You not destroy with the wicked, O God, my soul, and with men of blood my life;
10 in quorum manibus iniquitates sunt, dextera eorum repleta est muneribus.
in whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is replete with bribes.
11 Ego autem in innocentia mea ingressus sum; redime me, et miserere mei.
I, however, in my innocence have I entered; redeem me, and have mercy on me.
12 Pes meus stetit in directo; in ecclesiis benedicam te, Domine.
My foot has stood on the straight; in the assemblies will I bless You, O Lord.
